WebStorm 2021.1 Help


When JSLint support is enabled, WebStorm highlights errors that JSLint detects, provides descriptions for them, and suggests quick-fixes where possible.

Descriptions of the errors detected in the current file and quick-fixes for them are available from the editor and from the Current File tab of the Problems tool window.

Errors in all previously opened files and quick-fixes for them are shown in the Project Errors tab of the Problems tool window. To open the tool window, click the Inspection widget in the upper-right corner of the editor:
