Manual install

Just place flycheck-typescript-tslint.el somewhere on your system and load it. You'll need to have flycheck and typescript-mode installed.

;; Replace ~/Projects/elisp/flycheck-typescript-tslint/ with your location.
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/Projects/elisp/flycheck-typescript-tslint/")
(load-library "flycheck-typescript-tslint")


Add to your init.el:

(eval-after-load 'flycheck
  '(add-hook 'flycheck-mode-hook #'flycheck-typescript-tslint-setup))

TSLint installation

Make sure that you have TSLint installed:

npm install -g tslint
npm install -g typescript

If you can't install TSLint globally or can't put executable in $PATH:

 '(flycheck-typescript-tslint-executable "~/my_executables/tslint"))')


Location of the config file

You can specify config file for tslint:

 '(flycheck-typescript-tslint-config "~/tslint.json"))

Flycheck will try to find tslint.json even if you don't set this option. Just add tslint.json in your project directory, or in your home directory, Flycheck will find it.

Just remember that tslint does not work without configuration file!

Location of additional rules directory

You can also specify an additional rules directory, for user created rules.

 '(flycheck-typescript-tslint-rulesdir "~/my-tslint-rules")

For more details please check TSLint CLI usage.
