Just like JSLint.VS this is also a Java Script code analysis tool. This tool is an add-in for Visual Studio 2010. This is also developed by an individual programmer. This tool is like JSLint.VS, but has more features and options than the JSLint.VS. In this article I’ll list down some of the useful features of this code analyzer tool and the steps for Installing and Using JSLint
- Choice of JSlint (current), JSLint (old) and JSHint.
