JSHint for Sublime Text 2

The best JavaScript syntax checker: JSHint for the best text editor: Sublime Text 2

Install with Package Control


  • node 0.6.x
  • npm 1.1.x curl | sh
  • jshint 0.5.x npm install -g jshint
  • Sublime Package Control

Steps in Sublime Text 2:

  1. command-shift-P or control-shift-P in Linux/Windows
  2. type install p, select Package Control: Install Package
  3. type jshint, select JSHint

Without Sublime Package Control, you could manually clone to Packages directory as 'JSHint', exactly.

Run JSHint on an active JavaScript file in Sublime Text 2

  • control-J or Tools/Contextual menus or the Command Palette
  • F4 jump to next error row/column
  • shift-F4 jump to previous error row-column

Run JSHint on save

Install SublimeOnSaveBuild

Note: The control-J shortcut changes the Build System on the current file to JSHint, then Builds to run JSHint on the file and output any errors for jumping to within the file. You could alternatively set the Build System set to Automatic and command-B/control-B/F7, but only on files that end with .js.

Mac OS X: Install node with homebrew brew update brew install node. Make sure you have either the latest Command Line Tools or Xcode before installing homebrew.

Windows: Node should be in your CLASSPATH in environment variables, C:\Program Files (x86)\nodejs
