I've got my linter setup to run KtLint and then pass back the results to arc
KtLint will update my files to fix minor problems, and so I assume using SEVERITY_AUTOFIX tells arc that this was an issue but now its fixed. Then arc can offer to commit/amend the change?
$message->setLine($error->line + 1);
$message->setChar($error->column_start + 1);
However I am see'ing some strange behaviour where code is getting mangled and removed/replaced by arc.
Am I mistaken and this is not how autofix works? Is arc taking the original text and replacement text and also attempting to change my code?
I read the original patch: https://we.phorge.it/rARC14d49d25658f15e8e6ac94bbb7533565135175dc but that did not clear it up for me.
Does arc modify your code when you set the severity to AUTOFIX? And if so can I disable that whilst still showing automatically fixed lint errors and having arc prompt to amend the commit?
Of course, as soon as you ask a question you figure the answer.
arc lint --never-apply-patches
never-apply-patches stops arc from patching :-) (because Ktlint already did it).
