linting, SublimeLinter, javascript



Build Status

This linter plugin for SublimeLinter provides an interface to jshint. It will be used with files that have the "JavaScript" syntax, or within <script> tags in HTML files.


SublimeLinter must be installed in order to use this plugin.

Please use Package Control to install the linter plugin.

Before installing this plugin, ensure that jshint (2.5.0 or later) is installed on your system. To install jshint, do the following:

  1. Install Node.js (and npm on Linux).

  2. Install jshint (or globally with -g):

    npm install jshint
  3. If you are using nvm and zsh, ensure that the line to load nvm is in .zshenv or .zprofile and not .zshrc.(reason: here and here)

Please make sure that the path to jshint is available to SublimeLinter. The docs cover troubleshooting PATH configuration.


You can configure jshint options in the way you would from the command line, with .jshintrc files. For more information, see the jshint docs. You may provide a custom config file by setting the linter’s "args" setting to ["--config", "/path/to/file"]. On Windows, be sure to double the backslashes in the path, for example ["--config", "C:\\Users\\Aparajita\\jshint.conf"].

Using with tabs

If you use tabs as your indentation, make sure you set the option indent: 1 in your .jshintrc file. If not the wrong sections of the code will be highlighted.
