I recently released a new karma plugin for auto linting your CoffeeScript files, karma-coffeelint.
Here at work we've been beefing up test coverage for our CoffeeScript applications. We recently began using coffeelint to enforce some sane, standardized guidelines for our codebase without having to nitpick each other's pull requests.
We used the
coffeelint command to recursively lint all of our coffee files
on start. However, we didn't know what the linter thought of the CoffeeScript
we were writing. There wasn't any feedback from karma when the test suite ran
on file change.
karma-coffeelint lints your CoffeeScript when you update a file, shortening your feedback loop.
