grunt-jshint-only

grunt-jshint-only

A plugin to run code against only some jshint options.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt.

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-jshint-only --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-jshint-only');

The "jshint_only" task

Run this task with the grunt jshint_only command.

Overview

Most jshint grunt tasks will fail if any non-optional errors are encountered, this task allows you to specify exactly which errors will cause failures. Find error codes here: Jshint errors. In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named jshint_only to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  jshint_only: {
    options: {
      only: ['W022'] //array of jshint option codes to fail grunt task if found, all others will be recorded, but not fail the task. 
    },
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. 
    },
  },
})

Options

options.separator

Type: String Default value: ', '

A string value that is used to do something with whatever.

options.punctuation

Type: String Default value: '.'

A string value that is used to do something else with whatever else.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, the codes 'W024' and 'W033' are passed in, so this task will fail only if either of the below errors are encountered in the scanned files: W024: Expected an identifier and instead saw '{a}' (a reserved word) W002: Value of '{a}' may be overwritten in IE8 and earlier

If you are checking for errors that jshint does not fail on default, for example, W024, set the error to true in options for the task.

grunt.initConfig({
  jshint_only: {
    options: {
      es3: true,
      only: ['W024', 'W002']
    },
    files: {
      'dest': ['myApp/scripts/{,*/}*.js']
    },
  },
})

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
