CLI & JS Library (Node.js and Browser) to scan files/text for lines that exceed a specified column width.
Just use npm.
npm install linelint
CLI Help Output
evan@Evans-MacBook-Pro:~/lintlint --help Usage: lintlint [options] Options: -h, --help output usage information -l, --linelength <n> Length that lines cannot exceed. Defaults to 80 -V, --version output the version number
CLI Usage Example
Test all .txt files in the /test directory for lines longer than 120 characters.
evan@Evans-MacBook-Pro:~/lintlint -l 120 ./test/*.txt [PASS] /Users/evan/workspaces/work/linelint/test/fail-80.txt [PASS] /Users/evan/workspaces/work/linelint/test/passing.txt [FAIL] /Users/evan/workspaces/work/linelint/test/fail-120.txt Lines: 3, 5
API Usage Example
Pretty easy here. Require it as you would any module and call the verify function. This can also be used in the browser to scan strings of text. Using browserify will allow you to call this using require. Alternatively use one of the files in the /dist directory.
var linelint =fs = ;// Invalid lines is an array of line numbersvar invalidLines = linelint;
Scanning files via the CLI will use the EOL (End of Line) delimeter for the OS upon which you're running. In the browser "\n" will be used.
Check the contents of a string str have no lines longer than length characters. If length is omitted 80 is used as a default. If you read a file as a Buffer you must call the toString method on the buffer first as the library assumes you provide a string.
