This is CSS linting module for Mimosa. It will use rules to test your CSS to ensure it is idiomatic.


Add 'csslint' to your list of modules. That's all! Mimosa will install the module for you when you start mimosa watch or mimosa build.


When mimosa watch or mimosa build are executed this module will run csslint over your project's CSS files. This includes both regular .css as well as the output of pre-processors like SASS or LESS. csslint can be run on vendor files, but that is by default turned off.

Default Config

csslint: {
  compiled: true,
  copied: true,
  vendor: false,
  rules: {}

csslint.exclude array of string/regex

Files to exclude from linting. This setting is an array and can be comprised of strings or regexes. Strings are paths that can be relative to the watch.compiledDir or absolute. String paths must include the file name.

csslint.compiled boolean

When this property is set to true, compiled CSS (i.e. sass, less, stylus) will be csslinted.

csslint.copied boolean

When this property is set to true, copied CSS will be csslinted.

csslint.vendor boolean

When this property is set to true, vendor CSS will be csslinted. What files are vendor is determined by Mimosa core. Mimosa has a vendor setting which indicates where vendor files are located.

csslint.rules object

If you disagree with any of the jshint settings, or want to turn some of the rules off, add csslint overrides as key/value pairs underneath this property.
