I simply cannot explain how much Linting has improved my code. It improves readability and coding standards all at once. I recommend JS-Hint over JS-Lint, simply because their are a far greater number of options.
Here's how to install Sublime Linter (includes JS-Hint) into Sublime Text 2.
- If you don't already have it, install Sublime Package Control
- Restart Sublime Text 2
- Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+P on OS X, Control+Shift+P on Linux/Windows).
- Select "Package Control: Install Package" (This might take a few moments for Package Control to fetch the latest package list.)
- When the list appears, type "SublimeLinter" and press Enter/Return.
- Wait for SublimeLinter to install, it will only take a moment.
- Done :)
Now, when you Load, Save or Edit a file, you'll be linting your code.
