jshint-eclipse integrates JSHint, a popular code quality checker for JavaScript, into the Eclipse IDE.


This extension can be used to validate JavaScript files in Eclipse. Every problem found by JSHint is represented by a warning marker. The Problems view in Eclipse provides an overview of all problems found in a particular project.

As usual in Eclipse, files are validated automatically when they change.


All configuration options for JSHint can be specified on project level, i.e. for every project in the IDE, separate options can be defined. Settings are stored in the projects itself to be shared with the team.

The configuration also allows to exclude certain files and folders from JSHint validation.


Works with all Eclipse versions back to 3.6 (Helios). There are no other dependencies, both Rhino and JSHint are included.
