Fast cached jshint for gulp

It uses in memory stat cache, that's why lint-watch is blazing fast.


var sources = './**/*.js';
gulp.task('lint', gp.jshintCache({ src: sources }));
gulp.task('lint-or-die', gp.jshintCache({ src: sources, dieOnError: true }));
gulp.task('lint-watch', ['lint'], function(neverCalled) {, ['lint']);


  • sources* -- sources for glob.src
  • dieOnError -- if true, the process will die with error status 1 if lint fails. Use this for git pre-commit check.
  • jshint -- options for gulp-jshint
