When I was browsing the
DocSplit source code in VIM, I added a debugger and
saved the file. From then on the code acted extremely strangely, failing for
unrelated reasons - even after I removed the debugger.
What happened? When I saved the code to add the debugger, my linter
"fixed" on save using
rubocop. The default rules changed
CHILD_PROCESS. These are not equivalent, therefore a check for
$? == 0
within the code failed and the code bugged out.
The fix was to introduce a vim function to completely disabled linting and use this when I want to be non-invasive. Additionally, it would also be useful if VIM told me when a fixer made a change. Perhaps if I paid more attention to the git signals I would have caught it.
