An Emacs flymake handler for syntax-checking CSS source code using csslint.


If you choose not to use one of the convenient packages in Melpa and Marmalade, you'll need to add the directory containing flymake-css.el to your load-path, and then (require 'flymake-css). You'll also need to install flymake-easy.


Add the following to your emacs init file:

(require 'flymake-css)
(add-hook 'css-mode-hook 'flymake-css-load)

Beware that csslint is quite slow, so there can be a significant lag between editing and the highlighting of resulting errors.
