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.

This package will automatically install all the missing dependencies.

To use it you will have to install it via npm:

npm install @hint/configuration-web-recommended

Note: You can make npm install it as a devDependency using the --save-dev parameter, or to install it globally, you can use the -g parameter. For other options see npm‘s documentation.

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": "jsdom",
        "options": {
            "waitFor": 5000
    "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"]
