SublimeLinter-eslint

This linter plugin for SublimeLinter provides an interface to ESLint. It will be used with files that have the “javascript” syntax.

Installation

SublimeLinter 3 must be installed in order to use this plugin. If SublimeLinter 3 is not installed, please follow the instructions here.

Linter installation

Before using this plugin, you must ensure that eslint is installed on your system. To install eslint, do the following:

  1. Install Node.js (and npm on Linux).

  2. Install eslint globally by typing the following in a terminal:

    npm install -g eslint
    

    Or install eslint locally in your project folder:

    npm install eslint
    
  3. If you are using nvm and zsh, ensure that the line to load nvm is in .zprofile and not .zshrc.

  4. If you are using zsh and oh-my-zsh, do not load the nvm plugin for oh-my-zsh.

Once eslint is installed, you must ensure it is in your system PATH so that SublimeLinter can find it. This may not be as straightforward as you think, so please read about how linter executables are located in the documentation.

Once you have installed eslint you can proceed to install the SublimeLinter-eslint plugin if it is not yet installed.

Note: This plugin requires eslint 0.12.0 or later.

Plugin installation

Please use Package Control to install the linter plugin. This will ensure that the plugin will be updated when new versions are available. If you want to install from source so you can modify the source code, you probably know what you are doing so we won’t cover that here.

To install via Package Control, do the following:

  1. Within Sublime Text, bring up the Command Palette and type install. Among the commands you should see Package Control: Install Package. If that command is not highlighted, use the keyboard or mouse to select it. There will be a pause of a few seconds while Package Control fetches the list of available plugins.

  2. When the plugin list appears, type eslint. Among the entries you should see SublimeLinter-contrib-eslint. If that entry is not highlighted, use the keyboard or mouse to select it.

Settings

For general information on how SublimeLinter works with settings, please see Settings. For information on generic linter settings, please see Linter Settings.

You can configure eslint options in the way you would from the command line, with .eslintrc files. For more information, see the eslint docs.

Contributing

If you would like to contribute enhancements or fixes, please do the following:

  1. Fork the plugin repository.
  2. Hack on a separate topic branch created from the latest master.
  3. Commit and push the topic branch.
  4. Make a pull request.
  5. Be patient. ;-)

Please note that modications should follow these coding guidelines:

  • Indent is 4 spaces.
  • Code should pass flake8 and pep257 linters.
  • Vertical whitespace helps readability, don’t be afraid to use it.
  • Please use descriptive variable names, no abbrevations unless they are very well known.

Thank you for helping out!
