Sublime Lint

A framework for inline lint highlighting in the Sublime Text 2 editor.

Supports the following languages:

  • Python - native, moderately-complete lint

NOTE: the following languages may require you to install additional binaries and place them within your PATH (environment variable)

  • Coffescript - validation via "coffee --compile"
  • Go - validation via "go build" in a temporary folder
  • Java - validation via "java -Xlint" and a temporary file
  • JavaScript - linting via JSLint command-line "jsl"
  • NASM - validation via "nasm" and a temporary file
  • PHP - syntax checking via "php -l"
  • Perl - syntax+deprecation checking via "perl -c"
  • Ruby - syntax checking via "ruby -wc"

It's incredibly easy to add your own Linter. Take a look at languages/, languages/, and languages/ for some examples.
