Like grunt-contrib-jshint but compatible with react's jsx

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

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-react --save-dev

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


Jshint task

This grunt plugin works exactly like grunt-contrib-jshint. In fact it's even using grunt-contrib-jshint. The only difference to grunt-contrib-jshint is that this plugin runs require('babel').transform on every file passed in. This will transform the jsx syntax to regular JavaScript. Non jsx-files will be unchanged. Line numbers are preserved by jsx so the line numbers outputted by jshint will be correct.

This is a drop in replacement for grunt-contrib-jshint. So you can just replace the grunt-contrib-jshint dependency in your package.json with grunt-jshint-react.

grunt-jshint-react needs babel to work. If you don't have babel installed run

npm install babel --save-dev

Use exactly like grunt-contrib-jshint:

jshint: {
  //Everything like in grunt-contrib-jshint

Parsed filed extensions

By default, your jsx files need to have a .jsx or .react.js file extension. In order to parse other files, add the following into your jshint options object:

jshint: {
    options: {
        jshintrc: '.jshintrc',
        ignores: [],
        additionalSuffixes: ['.js']

These suffixes are concatenated onto .jsx and .react.js.


If grunt-jshint-react is lacking a feature or if you found bug (or a typo in the README) feel free to submit a pull request or file an issue.
