Sublime-JSLint

Easy JSLint for Sublime Text.

  • It has JSLint built in; requires only Node.JS installed on your system.
  • It can automatically run JSLint when you save a .js file.
  • Support for ES6: The Good Parts.
  • Now supports JSON.
  • Fully configurable linting options.
  • Jump to errors using F4 / Shift+F4.
  • Works on Linux, MacOS and Windows.

Prerequisites

NodeJS must be installed on your system and you must be able to run 'node' from the command line. Alternatively, if you have a different jslint utility already installed on your system, you may update the settings to use it instead.

Installation

Using Package Control:

  • Install the Package Control plugin if you don't have it
  • Press Ctrl+Shift+P to bring up the Command Palette (or use Tools > Command Palette menu)
  • Select Package Control: Install Package
  • Type 'JSLint' to find JSLint (with node) for Sublime Text 2
  • Select 'JSLint (with node) for Sublime Text 2' to install

Not using Package Control:

  • Get files from the package archive
  • unzip to Packages/JSLint directory (use "2" or "3" depending on which version you have):
    • Linux: ~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages/JSLint
    • Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/JSLint
    • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 2/Packages/JSLint
  • Relaunch Sublime Text

Usage

Any of the following will work:

  • Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+P on OS X, Control+Shift+P on Linux/Windows), then type JSLint.
  • Click the Tools > JSLint menu entry.
  • Press CTRL+L.
  • Just save a .js file.

Settings

  • Navigate to Preferences > Package Settings > JSLint > Settings - Default.
  • To preserve custom settings:
    • copy default settings to Preferences > Package Settings > JSLint > Settings - User
    • modify them to your requirements

Troubleshooting

"No such file or directory" when saving

When, on saving a .js file, you get this:

[Errno 2] No such file or directory
[cmd:  [u'node', ...]]

the command to run node might not be in your path.

Mac OS X users, ensure that /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH environment variable.

Linux users, if your node command is 'nodejs', as is the case when installing from some Linux repos,
navigate to Preferences > Package Settings > JSLint > Settings - User to change it, e.g.

{
   "jslint": ["nodejs", "~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages/JSLint/linter.js"]
}
