Lint CoffeeScript on the fly, using coffeelint

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import linterClayCoffeelint from '';



This linter plugin for Linter provides an interface to coffeelint. It will be used with files that have the “CoffeeScript” or “CoffeeScript (literate)” syntax.


Linter package must be installed in order to use this plugin. If Linter is not installed, please follow the instructions here.

Plugin installation

$ apm install linter-coffeelint


You can configure linter-coffeelint by editing ~/.atom/config.cson (choose Open Your Config in Atom menu):

  'coffeelintExecutablePath': null #coffeelint path. run 'which coffeelint' to find the path to the directory that holds the executable

Note: This plugin finds the nearest coffeelint.json file and uses the -f command line argument to use that file, so you may not use the -f argument in the linter settings.


If you would like to contribute enhancements or fixes, please do the following:

  1. Fork the plugin repository.
  2. Hack on a separate topic branch created from the latest master.
