jslint4java status

I’ve done a few releases of jslint4java whilst this blog has been down. We’re presently at 1.4.6. It’s mostly been bug fixes and JSLint upgrades.

What’s really interesting has been paying attention to the integrations that people have come up with. It’s never been easier to have lint-free JavaScript!

If you use the sonar code quality tool, check out the javascript-plugin-for-sonar which uses jslint4java.
The hudson violations plugin can display JSLint errors in your project. You still have to arrange to run jslint4java as part of your build though.
Want to run JSLint inside Emacs? Have a look at this gist.
Do you use gradle for your builds? kellyrob99 has produced a gradle-jslint-plugin.
Want to run JSLint automatically when using mercurial? Take a look at Running JSLint as Mercurial precommit hook.
Check out Integrating JSLint more tightly into NetBeans.
Whilst there’s a jslint4java maven plugin in the works, this stackoverflow post describes several ways of integrating JSLint with Maven.
If you’re doing Phonegap development, the latest version of the eclipse plugin comes with JSLint.

If you develop an open source project, then you really should set up a google alert for its name. You will be surprised.

What’s coming up?

Plenty to keep busy with!
