An improved flycheck-raku now available on melpa [Emacs]

Recently I forked the flycheck-raku (by @widefox) to the Raku GitHub organization. And did some improvements to it and published it on melpa, so others can easily install and update it. For those who don't know, flycheck is a tool for syntax checking Gnu Emacs buffers. You can install flycheck-raku using use-package: (use-package flychek-raku :ensure t) New features Project detection Previously if you used flycheck-raku on a project, it would show errors on use SomeModule;, even though the module was in the lib directory of the project.

How to type Raku unicode characters in Emacs

Raku programming language uses some unicode characters as operators, quotation marks, etc. In this post I'm going to explain how to type those characters in Emacs using input methods.

You may specifically want to look at XCompose for a system-wide solution. There are at least two input methods you can use to enter the unicode characters used in Raku.
