| Enable || Select this check box to have JSHint applied to verify the code in the current project. After that the other controls in the page are enabled. |
| Use config files || Select this check box to have the code verified according to the settings from a configuration file. A configuration file is a JSON file with the extension |
.jshintrc that specifies which JSHint options should be enabled or disabled. WebStorm will look for a
.jshintrc file in the working directory. If the search fails, WebStorm will search in the parent folder, then again in the parent folder. The process is repeated until WebStorm finds a
.jshintrc or reaches the project root. To have WebStorm still run verification when no
.jshintrc is found in the project, specify the default configuration file to use.
When this check box is selected, the Options area is hidden and the default verification settings are unavailable.
| Version || Use this drop-down list to choose the version of the tool to apply. |
WebStorm comes bundled with version 2.9.4, which is used by default. To download another version, choose it from the list.
| Options || In this area, configure JSHint behaviour by enabling or disabling JSHint options. To enable or disable an option, select or clear the corresponding check box respectively. The controls in the area fall into two groups: |
- Relaxing options: select/clear the check boxes in this area to suppress warnings when certain types of discrepancies are detected.
- Environments: select/clear these check boxes to specify for which environments you want global properties predefined.
The area is available only when the Use config files check box is cleared.
