Buy Me A Coffee


This is a tool to check if your files consider your .editorconfig. Most tools - like linters for example - only test one filetype and need an extra configuration. This tool only needs your editorconfig to check all files.

Sample Output


This is only a wrapper for the core editorconfig-checker. You should have a look at this repository to know how this tool can be used and what possibilities/caveats are there. This version can be used in the same way as the core as every argument is simply passed down to it.


Installation via composer is recommended:

composer require --dev editorconfig-checker/editorconfig-checker

# or in a composer-script just

Otherwise you could clone the repository and execute the script manually.

git clone


There is an alias from editorconfig-checker to ec so you can exchange every occurrence of editorconfig-checker with ec.

If you installed it via composer you have a binary in your composer-bin-dir folder called editorconfig-checker. Then you could create a script in your composer.json like this:

"scripts": {
    "lint:editorconfig": "editorconfig-checker"

Usage output:

  -config string
        print debugging information
        disables the trailing whitespace check
        disables the indentation check
        disables the final newline check
        disables the trailing whitespace check
        show which files would be checked
  -exclude string
        a regex which files should be excluded from checking - needs to be a valid regular expression
  -h    print the help
        print the help
        ignore default excludes
        creates an initial configuration
        dont print colors
  -v    print debugging information
        print debugging information
        print the version number
