Webhint VS Code extension

Use webhint to improve your website - during development.

VS Code running the webhint extension


This extension will use the @hint/configuration-development configuration by default. This configuration activates hints and parsers for HTML and templating systems (JSX/TSX, Angular, etc.), JavaScript/TypeScript, common pitfalls, and more. Refer to the package to learn more about what is enabled.

This should be a good starting point for everyone. If you encounter any false positives please open an issue in GitHub.

If you want more control over what gets activated, you can create a local .hintrc file to configure webhint. Please read the user guide to know more about this file.
