In my .config/nvim/init.vim I have

autocmd BufWritePost * Neomake

This works well when writing the file. But when writing and quitting with :wq, the results are prented on the terminal:

[user:~] $ vi stackexchange.py

Neomake: flake8 complete with exit code 0
Neomake: pep8 complete with exit code 0[user:~] $

How can I quiet this output?

    Did you do :help neomake?

  • I have looked it over in varying detail. I didn't find anything related my issue. In fact, it's quite long and the vast majority of it has absolutely nothing to do with my problem.

    Maybe silent! Neomake?

  • @muru unfortunately silent! doesn't make a difference.

There is an open issue: Do not run makers on :wq

The workaround mentioned in that issue:

autocmd! QuitPre * let g:neomake_verbose = 0
