Problem: Eglot constantly floods the echo area with messages like:

[eglot] vid_sampler 5743c883-2a9f-43af-aec8-b0db83a32e77: | lint: mccabe.

(Here, vid_sampler is the name of the project that I'm working on.) The problem is not only this specific message, it's the constant flood of messages like it that drown out useful information. All of these messages start with "[eglot] vid_sampler" then have some kind of UID followed by a "|", but they have different endings.

Relevant stack trace, obtained by doing (setq debug-on-message "lint: mccabe") and then triggering the message:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: "[eglot] vid_sampler 5743c883-2a9f-43af-aec8-b0db83a32e77: | lint: mccabe "

I have tried a lot of methods to disable these messages to no avail. Here's one attempt:

  ;; Stop spamming the f*cking minibuffer (didn't work)
  (defun stop-spamming-pls (orig-fun &rest args)
    (if (not (string-prefix-p "lint:" (nth 2 args)))
        (apply orig-fun args))
    )
  (advice-add 'eglot--reporter-update :around #'stop-spamming-pls)

This removed some of the annoying messages, but it didn't work because others that look like it made it through. I am looking for a less botched solution that works and ideally solves the root of the problem in a robust manner.

  • Maybe you need to add something to eglot-stay-out-of. I can't tell you what, but the options I can see are: 'yasnippet 'xref 'imenu 'flymake 'eldoc (of which I suspect only the last two are likely bets, but you could try them all for good measure).

Update, A less-than-ideal solution that seems to work:

(defun stop-spamming-pls-2 (orig-fun &rest args)
    "Stop eglot from spamming the echo area"
    (if (not (string-equal (nth 1 args) "$/progress"))
        (apply orig-fun args)
      )
    )
  (advice-add 'eglot-handle-notification :around #'stop-spamming-pls-2)
