At the moment JSHint accepts maxerr integer option as expected (this options restricts maximum number of errors reported). But unfortunately this options isn't mentioned on http://jshint.com/docs/ so its status is unofficial.
Actually maxerr is very useful for IntelliJ JSHint support because otherwise reporting thousands of errors in the editor will bring perfomance problems. Do people really need to view all this tons of errors?
Is it possible to support this option officially? Thanks.
maxerr is in the docs now
