description
This project is no longer actively maintained.  As alternatives I recommend Syntastic (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2736), jshint.vim (https://github.com/wookiehangover/jshint.vim), or a more active fork of jslint.vim (https://github.com/FuDesign2008/jslint.vim).

Vim plugin and command line tool for running JSLint (http://jslint.com/).

JSLint is a handy tool that spots errors and common mistakes in JavaScript code.

The source code for jslint.vim is hosted at (http://github.com/hallettj/jslint.vim).


Usage
-----------------------

- 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`

- (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


Alternative Plugins
---------------------

Syntastic (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2736) supports syntax checking for a number of languages,
including JavaScript via jshint or JSLint.

There are other plugins for Vim that integrate JavaScript Lint (http://www.javascriptlint.com/).  JavaScript Lint is another JavaScript checker that is similar to JSLint.

jsl.vim (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2630) uses Vim's compiler infrastructure making its use consistent with syntax checkers for other languages.

javaScriptLint.vim (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2578) 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.

install details
- 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 (http://nodejs.org/).

  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/`.
