JSLint Multi: Continously monitor multiple JavaScript files

Category: JavaScript, Utility, Widgets, Yahoo!

Michael Schøler and Jakob Kruse have created JSLint Multi a widget that acts as a continous linter for the Yahoo! Widgets platform:

JSLint Multi uses Douglas Crockford’s excellent JSLint tool to check your Javascript files for potential problems.

Drag a folder unto JSLint Multi, and it will give you an overview of the JSLint status of every Javascript file in that folder and folders below it. Click a file in the list, or drag a file, URI or some Javascript code unto the widget, and it will displays details of the first problem found. Edit the file, and JSLint Multi will instantly recheck it! It even picks up new files added to the monitored folder!

One of the links above says “JSLink Multi” instead of “JSLint Multi”. I like the idea behind this.

I must be doing something wrong, but I can’t get this widget to show anything… I drag a folder onto the widget, and the files show up, but clicking on them does nothing. :\

“mdmadph” – that’s strange. Clicking the files should show you either “File is valid” or an error description. Please issue a bug on the link.

Just did so — figured it out, I think. JSLint Multi doesn’t seem to want to work with files on network drives. :P

mdmadph: We’ll try that out. I see you have created a bug report for the issue. Thanks! =)
