JSHint, A Static Code Analysis Tool for JavaScript

Build Status NPM version

JSHint is a community-driven tool to detect errors and potential problems in JavaScript code and to enforce your team's coding conventions. We made JSHint very flexible so you can easily adjust it to your particular coding guidelines and the environment you expect your code to execute in.

Our goal is to help JavaScript developers write complex programs without worrying about typos and language gotchas.

We believe that static code analysis programs—as well as other code quality tools—are important and beneficial to the JavaScript community and, thus, should not alienate their users.

For general usage and hacking information, visit our website: http://jshint.com/.

Bug Bounties

Some bugs are so important to us, we will pay you if you fix them! Go to our page on BountySource to see which bugs have bounties behind them.

Really want to have something fixed but don't have time? You can add your own bounty to any JSHint bug and make it more attractive for potential contributors!

Rule: A bug is considered fixed only after it has been merged into the master branch of the main JSHint repository.

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 JSHint complains about valid JavaScript code that works in all browsers
  • When you simply want a new option or feature

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.


How do I turn off "mixed tabs and spaces" warning?

If you're using so-called smart tabs then we have an option smarttabs for you. Otherwise, your solution is to run JSHint with a custom reporter that discards any warnings you don't like. For example, this example reporter discards all warnings about mixed tabs and spaces.


Look for a file named CONTRIBUTING.md in this repository. It contains our contributing guidelines. We also have a mailing list.
