A jshint flavor of hallettj's jslint.vim.



Node.js must be in your path.

Recommended for use with tpope's Pathogen plugin runtime management system or vundle.

If you're old school or not into pathogen, there is a Makefile to copy everything into your ~/.vim directory.

Install with Vundle

Add to vimrc:

Plugin "wookiehangover/jshint.vim"

And install it:

:so ~/.vimrc

Install with pathogen

git clone https://github.com/wookiehangover/jshint.vim.git ~/.vim/bundle/jshint.vim



This plugin automatically checks the JavaScript source and highlights the lines with errors on file writes, entering a buffer and leaving insert mode. It also will display more information about the error in the commandline if the cursor is in the same line.

To disable automatic checking and only check when the file is written, use the following in your ~/.vimrc or set it at runtime: let JSHintUpdateWriteOnly=1

Manually check the file


Toggle automatic checking of a file

This can also be set in the ~/.vimrc file to bind this command to a key or to turn off error checking by default:


Working with quickfix

When automatic error checking is enabled, jshint.vim will automatically display errors in the quickfix window in addition to highlighting them.

You can open and close the quickfix window with the commands :copen and :cclose. Use the command :cn to go to the next error or :cc [nr] to go to a specific error, where [nr] is a number. The first error in the list is 1, the second is 2, and so on.

Once an error is fixed the corresponding quickfix line will disappear.


~/.vimrc Options

Disable error highlighting

let g:JSHintHighlightErrorLine = 0

JSHint options

Add any valid JSHint options to a ~/.jshintrc file. These options will be used as global options for all JavaScript files. There is an example file at Official Example

/*jshint browser: true, laxcomma, true, asi: true */
/*global deepEqual, equal, notEqual, test, ok, raises */
