    Project mention: makeprg is reset when opening different file | /r/neovim | 2023-05-14

    You should take a look at ~\AppData\Local\nvim-data\plugged\jai.vim\compiler\jai.vim line 60 and see what the plugin uses. My assumption is that it's setlocal. I don't know which plugin this is, because the jai.vim I found doesn't have a compiler file. You could make a PR or issue to the relevant repository asking for this to be a setting, or you could set makeprg= yourself, instead of relying on the compiler setting (or you could copy the plugin's compiler file to your vimfiles and modify it.)
