    So cool. Looks like the proseline site is down. For anyone else who wanted to read the approach - https://github.com/amperser/proselint/blob/b5b7536bec5fd461e...
  • Writing like a pro with vale & neovim

    You can try proselint, which also has built-in support in null-ls. Its LaTeX support isn't perfect, but it's workable.
  • Help with autocompletion for prose writing.

    Something like grammar-guard, proselint and/or language-tool?

    Yep, though there's not a lot to see! Follow the instructions for installing proselint at https://github.com/amperser/proselint and configure as follows:

    Vale uses a customizable grammar checker, and you can download some open-source configurations to start working with from the link above. Then, you just need to add something like below to your Emacs configuration: (flycheck-define-checker vale "A prose linter" :command ("vale" "--output" "line" source) :standard-input nil :error-patterns ((error line-start (file-name) ":" line ":" column ":" (id (one-or-more (not (any ":")))) ":" (message) line-end)) :modes (markdown-mode org-mode text-mode) ) (add-to-list 'flycheck-checkers 'vale 'append) (setq flycheck-vale-executable "/usr/local/bin/vale") It looks like you can do something similar with Proselint, which looks wonderful and I have been meaning to try using in my day-to-day: https://unconj.ca/blog/linting-prose-in-emacs.html .

    Full list here. Since the tool is a linter, it sounds like it should work with language servers. I use CoC.nvim for LSP features. Thankfully some smart guys have figured out how to make proselint work with coc.nvim & coc-diagnostic (see here). Now it works for my blog posts just like clangd does for my C++ code.

    Both of the above are naturally integrated into billions of nvim plugins. I store files in a cloud folder to have access to them on my phone. There are apps that allow you to work with notes written in markdown like Obsidian. You should have a way to quickly go to your writing files. You could use telescope-project.nvim, startify shortcuts, or any other session plugin. I would also recommend setting up LSP for writing. You will be able to have diagnostics, "code actions" on wrong grammar, allowing you to add words to dictionary and suppress rules. I use ltex_extra.nvim for this. There are also a good set of plugins for writing by one author, just check them at the bottom of the pencil page.
  • Almost monospaced: the perfect fonts for writing

    Two years ago, I did nanowrimo in Vim with a whole suite of plugins:

    - https://github.com/preservim/vim-pencil

    - https://github.com/junegunn/goyo.vim.git

    - https://github.com/junegunn/limelight.vim.git

    - https://github.com/vimwiki/vimwiki

    It was fun, and the setup is almost identical to iA Writer which I appreciate. I even had it all on my phone with Termux!

    Last year I just did it in Markdown in VSCode in "zen mode" which also worked pretty well. It was definitely easier to setup than Vim and had better highlighting of bold/italics/etc.

    You may like vim-pencil if you use markdown. It adds several small conveniences around word wrap options, among other things. Note also that the author of pencil includes many useful links in the README for conceiving vim as a tool for prose. My workflow is based on pandoc and bibtex. But that part's not vim- specific.
  • How do you write files that are strictly max 80 chars per line?
    1 project | /r/vim | 10 Mar 2022
    The most efficient way to do this is to install the vim-pencil plugin--when you go to edit the file, say :Pencil to activate the plugin, and it'll reformat the text on the fly while you're editing it. Basically it makes vim act less like vim and more like a word processor.

    vim-pencil sets undo points at the end of every sentence (and other things) although you might not want to install a full plugin just for that.
