lintr lints are automatically displayed in the RStudio Markers pane (RStudio versions > v0.99.206).
In order to show the “Markers” pane in RStudio: Menu “Tools” -> “Global Options…”, a window with title “Options” will pop up. In that window: click “Code” on the left; click “Diagnostics” tab; check “Show diagnostics for R”.
To lint a source file
test.R type in the Console
lintr::lint("test.R") and look at the result in the “Markers” pane.
This package also includes two addins for linting the current source and package. To bind the addin to a keyboard shortcut navigate to Tools > addins > Browse Addins > Keyboard Shortcuts. It’s recommended to use Alt+Shift+L for linting the current source lint and Ctrl+Shift+Alt+L to code the package. These are easy to remember as you are Alt+Shift+L(int) ;)
