tibet-lint(1) -- runs various lint tools on package files


tibet lint [[--filter] <filter>] [--force] [--scan] [--stop] [package-opts] [eslint-opts]


Runs a variety of lint tools on files specified in a TIBET package.

The optional filter argument provides a string or regular expression used to filter file names. If the filter begins and ends with / it is treated as a regular expression for purposes of file filtering.

[package-opts] refers to valid options for a TIBET Package object and help determine which subset of the application's manifests should be targeted. These include --package, --config, --phase, --assets, etc. The package@config defaults to ~app_cfg/main.xml and its default config (usually @base) so your typical configuration is linted. See help on the tibet package command for more information.

--force overrides any information found in .tibelint.json which would otherwise keep lint from looking at files it thinks haven't changed since the last run.

--scan overrides any package options and causes the lint command to scan the filesystem rather than using package configuration entries to determine the file set to process.

--stop tells the lint process to stop running after the first error condition, supporting a fast-fail approach for build scripts etc.

[eslint-opts] refers to --esconfig, --esrules, and --esignore which let you configure eslint to meet your specific needs. The linter will automatically take advantage of a .eslintrc file in your project.

[stylelint-opts] refers to --styleconfig which allows you to specify a .stylelintrc file whose content should be used. The lint command relies on .stylelintrc as used by the styleline command (installed separately). The default file is the one in your project.

All of the linters can be disabled individually by using a --no- prefix. For example: --no-style --no-js --no-json --no-xml will turn off all the currently supported linters.


  • --scan : Tells the linter to scan the directory tree and ignore any package@config specification. Without this flag only files found in the project package files will be linted, making it easy to lint only those files your project actually makes direct use of.

  • --quiet : Tells the linter to suppress warnings if possible.

  • --stop : Tells the linter to stop after the first file with errors.
