Two questions. One straight forward the other a bit more subjective 🙂.
1. How do you enable a spell checker? Nothing i find seems to care that i have typed
serach instead of
2. Whats a good way to go about learning emacs through the spacemacs perspective. e.g I feel like we have layers instead of packages. Often Packages have instructions like "just add this"
(some code i dont understand) but it doesn't even explain where or what it does, i feel like the readmes assume an expert level but given how sprawling emacs and that i'm fairly committed to spacemacs it hard to figure out where to start and where im supposed to end up in terms of learning ideas.
spell-checking layer - this needs an external spell checker on your operating system to work though. It looks for
aspell by default (on Windows, this is a bit of a challenge to get working)
2) a bit of self promo of my (work in progress) book on Spacemacs... https://practicalli.github.io/spacemacs/
thanks! spell-checking is what im using now, i should have said that. I'm on ubuntu so maybe i need to enable something.
spell-checking should just work if you have
aspell installed. Try running it on the command line in ubuntu
If you look at the
SPC h SPC spell-checking it does tell you how to disable spell checking, so maybe try the opposite of that
Thanks. To be clear. In emacs, in clojure-mode, if i type
serch i would for the editor to indicate its probably a misspelled word. Right now, nothing happens.
Ah, interesting. If you have
serch as a string, then
spell-checking works just fine (for me). If
serch is a symbol or a function name, then Joker is reporting an error (and possibly hiding the spelling mistake).
In what context are you using
serch? In a string, a function name, argument, ???
I should have been more clear, i would like it to be checking symbols and keywords to i suppose. Which is probably the hard part of this...
Hmm, interesting things happening here. If you use
SPC SPC flyspell-correct-at-point on either a symbol or keyword then it will offer you a helm list of spell check corrections. However, as you have seen its not showing you the spell-checking visual warnings in the text
