Reporting a bug
To report a bug simply create a new GitHub Issue and describe your problem or suggestion. We welcome all kind of feedback regarding JSHint including but not limited to:
- When JSHint doesn't work as expected
- When you simply want a new option or feature
Please, before reporting a bug look around to see if there are any open or closed tickets that cover your issue. And remember the wisdom: pull request > bug report > tweet.
The best way to make sure your issue is addressed is to submit a patch. GitHub provides a very nice interface--pull requests--for that but we accept patches through all mediums: email, issue comment, tweet with a link to a snippet, etc.
Before submitting a patch make sure that you comply to our style. We don't have specific style guide so just look around the code you are changing.
Also, make sure that you write tests for new features and make sure that all tests pass before submitting a patch. Patches that break the build will be rejected.
FEATURE FREEZE: Please note that we currently have a feature freeze on new environments and styling options. The only patches we accept at this time are for bug fixes.
To run tests you will need to install node.js and expresso. You can install the latter with npm:
npm install expresso
After that, running the unit tests is as easy as:
