JSHint, A Static Code Analysis Tool for JavaScript

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.

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.


You can install JSHint via NPM:

npm install jshint -g

We also provide platform wrappers for Rhino, JavaScriptCore and Windows Script Host. To use them, clone this repo and run our build command:

node make.js
