webhint's recommended web configuration

webhint’s recommended web configuration (@hint/configuration-web-recommended)

This packages is a webhint‘s configuration package to use in production websites and it is installed automatically by webhint:

npm install hint --save-dev

Note: The recommended way of running webhint is as a devDependency of your project.

The minimum required .hintrc file to use it is the following:

    "extends": ["web-recommended"]

and it will be as if you had this:

    "connector": {
        "name": "puppeteer"
    "extends": [
    "formatters": [
    "hints": {
        "axe": "error",
        "content-type": "error",
        "disown-opener": "error",
        "highest-available-document-mode": "error",
        "html-checker": "error",
        "http-cache": "error",
        "http-compression": "error",
    "hintsTimeout": 120000

If you prefer to use another formatter (or any other hint/connector, etc.) you can do something like:

    "extends": ["web-recommended"],
    "formatters": ["codeframe"]
