flymake-rakudo - Another syntax checker for Raku on Emacs

Flymake I've been switching to Emacs packages which are lighter and use the internal Emacs system, instead of creating their own. This time I wanted to try Flymake, the syntax checker that comes with Emacs. At first it wasn't very appealing because I thought it would only show the error on mouse hover! So I tried to see what options I have for displaying the error messages when text cursor moves over them.

An improved flycheck-raku now available on melpa [Emacs]

Recently I forked the flycheck-raku (by @widefox) to the Raku GitHub organization. And did some improvements to it and published it on melpa, so others can easily install and update it. For those who don't know, flycheck is a tool for syntax checking Gnu Emacs buffers. You can install flycheck-raku using use-package: (use-package flychek-raku :ensure t) New features Project detection Previously if you used flycheck-raku on a project, it would show errors on use SomeModule;, even though the module was in the lib directory of the project.
