Configure EkLine linter

EkLine asks for an API Token at first activation.

If you cancel or input an invalid token, the extension displays a popup offering another chance to set up EkLine or turn off for avoiding future popups. Once turned off, execute 'Configure EkLine Linter' from the Command Palette or clear the 'off' box in Extension Settings.


The extension runs EkLine on supported files when opened or saved.

To analyze all supported files in the workspace, execute 'Run EkLine Linter' from the Command Palette.
