I have ALE configured to lint and fix Ruby and Javascript files. Linting works as expected - the tools are found and I get info in the location list, etc. about changes to be made.

However, fixing the files using the same linters does not work. I have tried both fix on save and manually calling :ALEFix. In both cases nothing happens.

My vim configuration is here: https://github.com/prognostikos/dotfiles/blob/master/vim/vimrc.symlink

:ALEInfo after running :ALEFix follows:

  • It would help if you could simplify your configuration and reduced it to a minimum configuration that lead to the problem. It would also clarify if you could provide the rust file for which you expect a fix and tell us which fix you expect. A screenshot could you also help to understand what you experience.
