Overview

VHDL-Tool's linting and syntax checking features are accessible from within Emacs through the Flycheck plugin.

Flycheck

Copy as much as you like from the sample emacs config. You will need at least the VHDL-Tool flycheck checker definition.

Then, start the vhdl-tool server and then Emacs:

$ vhdl-tool server &
$ emacs

Language server

You can also access VHDL-Tool's built in language server from within Emacs with the lsp-mode plugin. This exposes all of the features of VHDL-Tool from within Emacs. This method is currently not well tested.

An Emacs configuration file to get you started can be found here.
