-Vim plugin and command line tool for running [JSLint][].
+## This is a port of [jslint.vim][1] to use JSHint
+Vim plugin and command line tool for running [JSHint][].
-JSLint is a handy tool that spots errors and common mistakes in
-JavaScript code.
-The source code for jslint.vim is hosted at
-This is alpha software and is under heavy development.
-- Make sure you have a JavaScript interpreter installed. On Linux jslint.vim
- supports Spidermonkey, Rhino, and node.js. Spidermonkey or node.js are
- recommended because Rhino tends to have a long startup time.
- In Ubuntu you can install the Spidermonkey shell with this command:
- $ sudo apt-get install spidermonkey-bin
- Latest Ubuntu versions don't have spidermonkey in the default repositories.
- You can use rhino instead:
- $ sudo apt-get install rhino
- Or you can find instructions for installing node.js on the [node.js website][nodejs].
- [nodejs]:
- On Windows you can use `cscript.exe` - which is probably already installed.
- On MacOS X you don't need to install any JavaScript interpreter because one
- is included with OS X by default.
-- If you have rake installed, run:
- $ rake install
- Otherwise copy the directory ftplugin/ into your Vim ftplugin directory.
- Usually this is `~/.vim/ftplugin/`. On Windows it is `~/vimfiles/ftplugin/`.
-- Finally, activate filetype plugins in your .vimrc, by adding the following line:
- filetype plugin on
-- This plugin automatically checks the JavaScript source and highlights the
- lines with errors.
- It also will display more information about the error in the commandline if the curser is
- in the same line.
-- You also can call it manually via `:JSLintUpdate`
-- You can toggle automatic checking on or off with the command `:JSLintToggle`.
- You can modify your `~/.vimrc` file to bind this command to a key or to turn
- off error checking by default.
-- (optional) Add any valid JSLint options to `~/.jslintrc` file, they will be
- used as global options for all JavaScript files.
- For example:
- /*jslint browser: true, regexp: true */
- /*global jQuery, $ */
- /* vim: set ft=javascript: */
-To get a detailed report of any issues in your JavaScript file outside of Vim,
-run the `bin/jslint` executable in a terminal. For example:
- $ bin/jslint ftplugin/jslint/fulljslint.js
-You can copy `bin/jslint` into for `PATH` for easier access. The executable
-requires that the Vim plugin is installed and also requires Ruby.
-To disable error highlighting altogether add this line to your `~/.vimrc` file:
- let g:JSLintHighlightErrorLine = 0
-Working with quickfix
-When automatic error checking is enabled jslint.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.
-[quickfix]: "Vim documentation: quickfix"
-Alternative Plugins
-There are other plugins for Vim that integrate [JavaScript Lint][]. JavaScript
-Lint is another JavaScript checker that is similar to JSLint.
-[JavaScript Lint]:
-[jsl.vim][] uses Vim's compiler infrastructure making its use consistent with
-syntax checkers for other languages.
-[javaScriptLint.vim][] runs the contents of a JavaScript file through
-JavaScript Lint after the file's buffer is saved and places any warnings in the
-quickfix error window.
