Hello all, I’m new to Calva (coming from Atom), and there are a couple of things I’d like to do. I can’t figure them out on my own however. 1. Is there a way I can disable linting provided by clj-kondo? It seems I can’t turn that extension off while Calva is on. 2. Is there a way I can disable or edit the syntax highlighting of Calva? Calva colors Clojure keywords red it seems. I would prefer to stick to the default set by my Atom-like color scheme. Could use a clue on either of these. Thanks.


1. you can add a config to .clj-condo/config.edn and then tune it down. Not sure if you can completely disable it.


2. You can change color scheme quite easily. See alabaster theme for example how.

Thanks for the helpp @U4EFBUCUE I solved my second issue through this SO post. I added this bitt to my setttings.json

"editor.tokenColorCustomizations": {
        "textMateRules": [
                "scope": "constant.keyword.clojure",
                "settings": {
                    "foreground": "#D19A66"
                "scope": "variable.other.constant.clojure",
                "settings": {
                    "foreground": "#D19A66"
It seems like those keywords in clojure get tagged differently when Calva is on, and therefore triggers different highlighting. I am here manually setting the color for the tag that Calva adds, variable.other.constant.clojure

That SO post shows how to inspect these tags---token names is more likely the proper name here.


Yeah. I went the route of finding the closest theme I liked and tweaking a few symbols that I didn't.
