gulp-csslint

CSSLint plugin for gulp

gulp-csslint

CSSLint plugin for gulp 3

First, install gulp-csslint as a development dependency:

npm install --save-dev gulp-csslint

Then, add it to your gulpfile.js:

var csslint = require('gulp-csslint');
 
gulp.task('css', function() {
  gulp.src('client/css/*.css')
    .pipe(csslint())
    .pipe(csslint.reporter());
});

Type: Object

If you pass lookup: false, the local .csslintrc is not looked up automatically.

You can pass rule configuration as an object. See the list of rules by ID on the CSSLint wiki for valid rule IDs.

Any properties passed wil be in addition to (or overwriting) the ones in .csslintrc (unless lookup: false is passed).

gulp.src('client/css/*.css')
  .pipe(csslint({
    'shorthand': false
  }))
  .pipe(csslint.reporter());

Type: String

You can also pass the path to your csslintrc file instead of a rule configuration object.

gulp.src('client/css/*.css')
  .pipe(csslint('csslintrc.json'))
  .pipe(csslint.reporter());

Adds the following properties to the file object:

file.csslint.success = true; // or false 
file.csslint.errorCount = 0; // number of errors returned by CSSLint 
file.csslint.results = []; // CSSLint errors 
file.csslint.opt = {}; // The options you passed to CSSLint 

Several reporters come built-in to css-lint. To use one of these reporters, pass the name to csslint.reporter.

For a list of all reporters supported by csslint, see the csslint wiki.

gulp.task('lint', function() {
  gulp.files('lib/*.css')
    .pipe(csslint())
    .pipe(csslint.reporter('junit-xml'));

Custom reporter functions can be passed as csslint.reporter(reporterFunc). The reporter function will be called for each linted file and passed the file object as described above.

var csslint = require('gulp-csslint');
var gutil = require('gulp-util');
 
var customReporter = function(file) {
  gutil.log(gutil.colors.cyan(file.csslint.errorCount)+' errors in '+gutil.colors.magenta(file.path));
 
  file.csslint.results.forEach(function(result) {
    gutil.log(result.error.message+' on line '+result.error.line);
  });
};
 
gulp.task('lint', function() {
  gulp.files('lib/*.css')
    .pipe(csslint())
    .pipe(csslint.reporter(customReporter));
});

Use the csslint.addRule(rule) method to define custom rules that run in addition to the rules defined in the csslintrc file. See Working with Rules for details.

var csslint = require('gulp-csslint');
 
csslint.addRule({
    // rule information 
});
 
gulp.task('lint', function() {
  gulp.files('lib/*.css')
    .pipe(csslint())
    .pipe(csslint.reporter())
});

Pipe the file stream to csslint.failReporter() to fail on errors.

var csslint = require('gulp-csslint');
 
gulp.task('lint', function() {
  gulp.files('lib/*.css')
    .pipe(csslint())
    .pipe(csslint.reporter()) // Display errors 
    .pipe(csslint.reporter('fail')); // Fail on error (or csslint.failReporter()) 
});
