Argulint is a little linter wrapper that runs the standardjs lint process but adds a fun twist to it.

The only goal is to have a little fun with your linting.


  • A simple CLI tool, it's just running standardjs under the hood
  • Which means it still works with standard options in the package.json as well as the --fix argument in the CLI
  • Re formats the output with some extra organization
  • Insults your mistakes for fun

How To


npm i -D argulint

Once installed you would use argulint just like you can use the standardjs linter via the CLI. It supports the --fix flag as well as using the standard options built into your package.json file.

Usage example:

argulint src/place/*.js

Or with the flag:

argulint --fix src/place/*.js

Note: There is no API this is strictly used within the CLI


Messages are generated in the following format:

  {linting error} {lines} {ending}


  • insult is the actual picked insult
  • linting error is the actual error that was found
  • lines is the line(s) and column(s) of the error in this format: line:column
  • ending is the chosen ending from our endings list


Example output looks something like this:

# of Errors: 6 - Alright you're done get out.
# Fixable: 5 - Put me in coach!

File: /path/to/argulint/tests/index.js
# of Errors: 6 - Uh oh!
# Fixable: 5 - I got this.
