Linting Prose in Emacs

There are a few ways to get linting of prose (grammar and style, not just spellcheck) in Emacs. Unfortunately, there is no good language server implementation for the popular open-source command line tools. The best option right now is probably proselint, but vale gives better suggestions.

Library Language server? Emacs package Notes
Vale Kind of flycheck-vale Seems like a good alternative for Grammarly-like linting, emacs package is out-of-date
Proselint No flymake-proselint
LanguageTool Maybe later flycheck-languagetool flymake-languagetool emacs-langtool Requires java, poor performance when using cli
write-good No None
Textlint No flycheck (built-in support)
