flycheck-ocaml — Flycheck for OCaml

License GPL 3 MELPA MELPA Stable Build Status

Add OCaml support to Flycheck:


As usual, from MELPA or MELPA Stable.

In your Cask file:

(source gnu)
(source melpa)

(depends-on "flycheck-ocaml")

In your init.el:

(with-eval-after-load 'merlin
  ;; Disable Merlin's own error checking
  (setq merlin-error-after-save nil)

  ;; Enable Flycheck checker

(add-hook 'tuareg-mode-hook #'merlin-mode)


Just use Flycheck as usual in Tuareg Mode buffers. Flycheck will automatically use the new ocaml-merlin syntax checker if Merlin Mode is enabled and Merlin's own error checking (merlin-error-after-save) is disabled.

If you enable Merlin's error checking with M-x merlin-toggle-view-errors Flycheck will not use the ocaml-merlin syntax checker anymore, to avoid duplicate and redundant error reporting.
