This library provides a flycheck checker for Ledger files.


You'll need Emacs 24 for flycheck, so the recommended way to get flycheck-ledger is as a package from the MELPA repository. The version of flycheck-ledger there will always be up-to-date. There are also packages in Marmalade, which track the latest numbered tag.

If you insist on doing things the hard way, first ensure flycheck is installed, then download this code and add the directory to your Emacs load-path.

Then, in your init.el:

(eval-after-load 'flycheck
  '(require 'flycheck-ledger))

Make sure that the ledger binary is present on Emacs' exec-path, or customize flycheck-ledger-executable to point to the ledger binary.


When flycheck is enabled (e.g. with global-flycheck-mode), ledger-mode buffers will be automatically checked using this checker.
