Install from Eclipse Marketplace

JSHint Eclipse is available in the Eclipse Marketplace. The easiest way to install it is to drag the icon on the start page into your Eclipse.

You can also open the marketplace dialog in Eclipse (Help > Eclipse Marketplace…) and search for “jshint”.


If installed from the marketplace / update site, Eclipse finds updates for you:

  • Help > Check for Updates


The feature can be uninstalled as follows:

  • Help > About Eclipse > Installation Details
  • Select JSHint Eclipse Integration, press Uninstall

Getting started

  • On a project that contains JavaScript files, open the context menu and select Properties
  • On the JSHint page, enable JSHint for at least one file or folder

Update site

If you prefer, you can also install jshint-eclipse directly from this update site:

  • In the Eclipse main menu, click: Help > Install New Software…
  • Enter the URL above and select JSHint Eclipse Integration

Download as zip

Zipped versions of the update sites are available on the release page. The zip files contain a complete p2 repository and can be used for installation into Eclipse.
