Real-time Linting

As you type your SQL queries in PopSQL, SQLFluff will now lint your code in real-time. This means immediate feedback on your SQL syntax, style, and any potential errors, saving you time and hassle with instant visibility into areas of improvement.

Enable in Organization Preferences

This powerful new feature can be easily enabled within your organization's preferences in PopSQL. Here's how:

  1. Go to your preferences.

  2. Navigate to the 'Linter' section.

  3. Toggle on the integration for SQLFluff linting and add your configuration rules.

Custom SQLFluff Configuration

PopSQL understands that different teams have different coding standards. That's why we've made it possible for you to add your own SQLFluff configuration file. Customize linting rules to align with your team's conventions and maintain the integrity of your codebase. Here's how to customize:

  1. Create a .sqlfluff configuration file with your desired rules.

  2. Paste it into the SQLFluff configuration box in your Linter settings in PopSQL.

  3. SQLFluff will use your custom rules to lint queries.

Benefits of SQLFluff Integration:

  • Consistency: Maintain a consistent code style across your entire team's SQL scripts.

  • Quality Assurance: Catch potential errors early in the development process.

  • Efficiency: Reduce the need for manual code reviews for stylistic or simple logical errors.
