I was encountering some issues using arcanist on Ubuntu 20.04, and per this topic, I switched to using arcanist from github directly. However, there are a few workflow changes from the version Ubuntu provides:
- If the only lint issues with a file are autofix issues, the linter with automatically apply the changes without a prompt when running
arc lint, or will automatically apply the changes but ask whether or not to amend them to HEAD when running
arc diff. Previously, I was always prompted for
arc lint, regardless of whether or not the only issues are autofix issues, and
arc diffdidn’t make changes if you didn’t ask it to.
arc diffno longer prompts for a lint excuse when creating/updating a diff
Is there a way to restore the previous workflow?
