Bonjour Damien,

Do you know about style-check.rb?

It's faster, and easier to setup than your tool.  I tried both your tool
and style-check on a manuscript, and generally the errors in style-check
were more pertinent, with less false positives. TextLint did find a few
things style-check didn't, so I'm keeping it around, thanks for writing
it :-)

I like your web interface, and how you group the warnings in it.

Also, a few fixable false positives :

- inline math isn't recognized properly. For instance, "$A$ and"
  complains that it should be an.

- "After "a" only words beginning without a vowel are allowed." triggers
  on "a uniform"

Also, for completeness, I think you want shell-quote-argument instead of

(format "\"%s\" \"%s\" \"%s\" \"%s\"" ...)
