Really having issues with getting SonarLint to run within VSCode (Version 1.23.1) in macOS (High Sierra Version 10.13.4).
After I installed the SonarLint extension from within VSCode and opened a JS file, I see the following error:
“Couldn’t start client SonarLint Language Server”
“Java 8 is required to run. Please download and install a JRE 8”
Typing “java --version” on my terminal returns the following version of JRE installed:
java 10.0.1 2018-04-17
Java™ SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.1+10)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM 18.3 (build 10.0.1+10, mixed mode)
I have tried setting the following values for the variable “sonarlint.ls.javaHome” in the VSCode user settings but none of them have worked so far:
- “/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/”
Am I doing something wrong here? In general, I can’t install Java Version 8 since 10 is already installed (unless I uninstall 10 and try installing 8).
Has anyone been able to use SonarLint with VSCode in MacOS at all?
