I've installed:

go install golang.org/x/tools/go/analysis/passes/shadow/cmd/shadow

When run on an example script I get the expected output:

$ shadow test_shadowing.go 

test_shadowing.go:10:3: declaration of "foo" shadows declaration at line 8

But when configuring ALE to use this shadow tool, it doesn't appear to notify me of any issues...

let g:ale_go_govet_options = '-vettool=$(which shadow)'
let g:ale_linters = {'go': ['gopls']}

Note: I've also tried an absolute path instead of a subprocess (e.g. let g:ale_go_govet_options = '-vettool=/Users/me/go/bin/shadow').

If I manually execute the shadow command from vim it works:

:!shadow '%'

/Users/me/Code/test_shadowing.go:10:3: declaration of "foo" shadows declaration at line 8

shell returned 3

Press ENTER or type command to continue

But of course I'd prefer ALE to highlight these issues to me.

UPDATE

I was asked to provide :ALEInfo...

    Might have better luck asking ale’s maintainers tbh – D. Ben Knoble Feb 14 at 13:36
  • I started with opening an ALE issue on GitHub but they requested I come here instead and only open an issue if there was a genuine bug. – Integralist Feb 15 at 18:45
  • Yeah, w0rp and I have gone back and forth on this; I hope you get an answer. I’m just convinced that community better knows how to configure ALE then this one does; I have to search the whole docs every time I need to do something non-default. – D. Ben Knoble Feb 15 at 19:02
  • Can you show :ALEInfo with your attempts? – D. Ben Knoble Feb 15 at 19:02
  • @D.BenKnoble apologies for slow reply. I've updated the question with the ALEInfo. Interestingly I don't see let g:ale_go_govet_options in the output (which I expected to, but I could be wrong about whether that should be displayed or not). – Integralist Feb 20 at 12:46
