Integration with text editors

Most text editors support syntax checking and highlighting, to visually report syntax errors and warnings to the user. yamllint can be used to syntax-check YAML source, but a bit of configuration is required depending on your favorite text editor.

Vim

Assuming that the ALE plugin is installed, yamllint is supported by default. It is automatically enabled when editing YAML files.

If you instead use the syntastic plugin, add this to your .vimrc:

let g:syntastic_yaml_checkers = ['yamllint']

Neovim

Assuming that the neomake plugin is installed, yamllint is supported by default. It is automatically enabled when editing YAML files.
