Linting your scss with scsslint

Getting Started

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-scsslint --save-dev

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


The "scsslint" task


This task requires you to have Ruby and scss-lint installed. If you're on OS X or Linux you probably already have Ruby installed; test with ruby -v in your terminal. When you've confirmed you have Ruby installed, run gem install scss-lint to install scss-lint.

In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named scsslint to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  scsslint: {
    options: {
      // Options go here. 
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.

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.
