grunt-lint-inline Build Status NPM version

Grunt task for linting inline JavaScript.

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-lint-inline --save-dev

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



The task leverages grunt-contrib-jshint by wrapping around it and removing all code not within <script>-tags.

All options defined in the task will be passed on to JSHint with the exception of those defined under Additional Options.

    options: { /* options here */ }
