npm install -g flow-bin

(defun dotspacemacs/layers () (setq-default dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '( syntax-checking ) ))

Now we need something that can plug into flycheck and do the flowtype checks for us. That package is flycheck-flow.
SPC : and run the command
package-install. The find and select
Once you’re installed, you can get feedback from Flow within Spacemacs.
Some of this will happen inline. You’ll get red dots in the gutter with red underlines in your code. If you move your cursor to that point, you will get tooltips describing the problem.
There are also a set of commands for opening a list of flycheck errors.
