During these last few sprints we've been doing good progress on reducing false positives, change the default severity of hints, hiding configuration that shouldn't be used by anyone, use development when path is in the file system, etc.
Still, on boarding someone new can be difficult. We really tell the user that they need a .hintrc file and it is not clear when to use one or the other.

I propose a few changes to achieve this:

  • Change the message where we tell users they don't have a hintrc to suggest them to write one if they want to enable/disable particular hints. This is what currently looks like, it can probably be just one line:
  • The Getting started guide talks a lot about configurations. We should change the language from things like needs a configuration file to know what to if you want to tweak the default configuration... and move this to its own section
  • Anything else we can come up with

@Malvoz, @antross I've already talked about this with @hxlnt and @savaje and I'd like to know what you think about this.
