karma coffeelint

I recently released a new karma plugin for auto linting your CoffeeScript files, karma-coffeelint.

NPM Package

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.
