Doesn't only look for typos but for grammar and style issues as well. Not to be confused with LaTeX.

I have been using LTeX for half a year now. It's great!
Note that LTeX is not the same as LaTeX, the "document preparation system."
- Checks for spelling issues (typos)
- Checks for grammar issues
- Checks for style issues
- Example: "Three successive sentences begin with the same word. Consider rewording the sentence or use a thesaurus to find a synonym." I get this often when starting too many sentences with the word "I" (maybe I love myself too much)
- Explains why things are (or might be) wrong instead of just complaining
- Works offline
- Is privacy-friendly (because works offline)
- Is easy to set up: install the VS Code extension and the rest will be auto-installed
- Provides quick fixes (Meta+.)
- Doesn't slow down VS Code (at least not on my machine; some other spell checker extensions have been horribly slow)
- Works even if you split sentences to multiple lines
- Doesn't support Finnish
- Doesn't support disabling checking for a single document/file
- There's "LTeX: Clear Diagnostics in Current Document" in VS Code's Command Palette, but the extension runs again when you type or erase even a single letter
- Sometimes leaves stray Java processes behind
- It might be a good idea to manually terminate the stray processes from time to time, especially if you are low on RAM
