    Check syntax in Vim asynchronously and fix files, with Language Server Protocol (LSP) support

    I don't use ALE, but I think you could get something working through the g:ale_python_*_auto_poetry and g:ale_python_*_executable options. See :help ale-python as a starting point:

  • nvim-lint

    An asynchronous linter plugin for Neovim complementary to the built-in Language Server Protocol support.

    I use nvim-lint (, but I still don't know exactly how to achieve your goals with it. My hunch is that it should be somewhat straightforward, since Lua code could be used to provide the executable command (i.e. if in poetry project then cmd =poetry run ...else if ... then ... end)
