Setting up grammar check with Doom Emacs in Mac OS X
Published on Nov 11, 2021, by Junji Zhi
Doom Emacs supports grammar check with Language Tools and writegood-mode.
To turn it on, we update the init.el:
:checkers ;; ... grammar
Also it requires setting up java and Language Tools:
brew install java languagetool
However, the language tool didn't work out of box with the default Homebrew install. It complains:
LanguageTool exited abnormally with code 1 (The operation couldn t be completed. Unable to locate a Java Runtime.)
I have to manually update the
(setq langtool-java-bin "/usr/local/opt/openjdk/bin/java")
M-x langtool-check-buffer works!

I wrote a new post about running language-tool check automatically.
