Example Commands

Check all JavaScript files in directory for trailing spaces and newline at the end of file:

lintspaces -n -t ./*.js

Check all js and css files

lintspaces -n -t src/**/*.js src/**/*.css

Check that 2 spaces are used as indent:

lintspaces -nt -s 2 -d spaces ./*.js

Using Ignores

lintspaces supports ignores, and we added support for those in version 0.3.0 of this module.

Using built in ignores can be done like so:

lintspaces -i 'js-comments' -i 'c-comments'

To add Regex ignores a different flag is required:

lintspaces -r '/pointless|regex/g' -r '/and|another/gi '
