Liquid Linter CLI
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
This package is a wrapper for the NodeJs liquid-linter package, allowing it to be run from the command-line interface (CLI).
Install this package with NPM using
npm install liquid-linter-cli --save
--global for a system-wide install) or with Yarn
yarn add liquid-linter-cli (or
yarn global add liquid-linter-cli for a
The lint command can be called with one or more paths of files or folders that need to be linted. The command has support for pipelines. when given a directory, it is scanned for the following file extensions:
Currently the linter does not have a way to exclude files or folders. An example of how to achieve this is given in the "Pipes" section.
The most simple use is simply:
The lint command has support for multiple paths. This can be a mix of files and folders:
liquid-linter /path/to/directory/one /path/to/file /path/to/directory/two
Custom blocks and tags
Liquid has support for custom tags. The liquid-linter makes the distinction between tags (tags that do not require an end tag) and blocks (tags that do require an end tag).
Custom tags and blocks can be passed to the linter using the
--custom-block flags, respectively. Both can be added multiple times, to add
more than one tag or block:
liquid-linter --custom-block section --custom-tag button --custom-tag color /path/to/directory
In order to exclude files and folder, the user has to create a list themselves which does not contain the files and/or folders that should be excluded.
The following example shows how to lint all files and folders in the current
directory except the
_site folders, and only for files with
.lqd extension (commonly used for includes)
find . -type f -name "*.lqd" \ -not -path './node_modules/*' \ -not -path './_site/*' -print0 \ | xargs -0 -n1 liquid-linter
The output of the linter displays a list of files and the result of the linting of that file. Files with no issues are colored green, files with issues are colored red.
For files with issues, the line and column(s) at which the error occurred are show.
