Code-style and linting presets cli-tool to quickly scaffold project development.

npm npm npm

All stacks use lintstaged to run all linted stacks when code is commited to the git repository. We feel that this is a really nice approach to avoid un-linted code creeping into the codebase.

Because standard lint configuration files are used any related Code-editor plugins should pickup and follow the same ruleset, or when running individual linters directly.

When running stacklint all node and composer packages required to lint the selected stacks are added to your configuration files and individual config files for each stack are also included.


Stacklint is intended to be installed globally so that it can easily be run and there is no need to include the dependency in your project specific package.json.

npm install -g stacklint


stacklint [options] <stacks>

After installing your lint stacks you will need to run required installs.

npm install
composer install

Note: Because lintstaged installs some git hooks, you should initialise your git repository before running npm install after setting up your stacks.


The following example will setup all required files and packages to lint php and md Markdown files when they are committed to git.

stacklint php md json

Installs packages and configs for:

  1. Lintstaged
  2. PHP Codesniffer
  3. Markdownlint
  4. Jsonlint
stacklint js airbnb vue

Installs packages and config for:

  1. Lintstaged
  2. ESLint
    1. Airbnb extend
    2. Vue.js plugin
    3. Babel plugin

Available stacks

You can quickly check which stacks are available by running stacklint -l or stacklint --list.

  1. js (Javascript. Also required additional stack for style guide. E.g. airbnb)
    1. airbnb (Airbnb style guide)
  2. json
  3. laravel (Use instead of php if using laravel)
  4. md (Markdown)
  5. php (PSR-2)
  6. scss
  7. vue (Requires js stack)


We welcome any contributions, especially new lint stacks.
