When using flycheck or flymake, it would be nice to have quick fix functionality which gives suggested fixes and automatically applies them when selected like most IDE's provide.

So far the only thing i've found that seems to do this is:


But it looks like it isn't commonly used or actively maintained and only supports a couple of languages.

Is there anything else out there? or is there something built-in to some commonly used programming modes that I might be missing?

There's a package called attrap that implements this complementary "fixer" behavior for flycheck (via the attrap-attrap function). It's fairly straightforward to implement fixers for a new language/mode (see attrap-flycheck-checkers-alist and attrap-elisp-fixer as an example fixer function).
