The attached patch augments the API for these purposes (and describes it
in the manual).

You should be able to just do:

  (defun flymake-tip-get-diag-text-on-line ()
      "Return list of string of error/warning info on the current line."
      (cl-loop for diag in (flymake-diagnostics (point-at-bol) (point-at-eol))
               collect (flymake-diagnostic-text diag)))

If noone objects I shall push the patch to emacs-26 in a couple of days time.

Subject: [PATCH] Augment Flymake API for third-party extensions


* doc/misc/flymake.texi (Flymake error types): Rewrite
(Flymake utility functions): Augment with new API.

* lisp/progmodes/flymake.el (flymake-diagnostics): New function.
(flymake--diag-accessor): New helper macro.
(flymake-diagnostic-buffer, flymake-diagnostic-text)
(flymake-diagnostic-beg, flymake-diagnostic-end)
(flymake-diagnostic-backend): Accessors for diagnostic objects.
(flymake--overlays): Use flymake-diagnostic property.
(flymake--highlight-line): Simplify.  Only set
flymake-diagnostic property.
(flymake--handle-report, flymake-goto-next-error): Use
flymake-diagnostic property.
(flymake-show-diagnostic): Use diagnostic object.
(flymake--diagnostics-buffer-entries): Use

 As you might have guessed, Flymake's annotations are implemented as
 overlays (@pxref{Overlays,,, elisp, The Emacs Lisp Reference Manual}).
 Along with the properties that you specify for the specific type of
-diagnostic, Flymake adds the property @code{flymake-text} to these
-overlays, and sets it to the message string that the backend used to
-describe the diagnostic.
+diagnostic, Flymake adds the property @code{flymake-diagnostic} to
+these overlays, and sets it to the object that the backend created
+with @code{flymake-make-diagnostic}.
-Since overlays also support arbitrary keymaps, you can use this
-property @code{flymake-text} to create interactive annotations, such
-as in the following example of binding a @kbd{mouse-3} event (middle
-mouse button click) to an Internet search for the text of a
address@hidden:warning} or @code{:error}.
