TSLint is an extensible static analysis tool that checks TypeScript code for readability, maintainability, and functionality errors. It is widely supported across modern editors & build systems and can be customized with your own lint rules, configurations, and formatters.
⚠️ TSLint will be deprecated some time in 2019. See this issue for more details: Roadmap: TSLint → ESLint. If you're interested in helping with the TSLint/ESLint migration, please check out our OSS Fellowship program.
TSLint currently supports:
- an extensive set of core rules
- custom lint rules
- custom formatters (failure reporters)
- inline disabling and enabling of rules with comment flags in source code
- configuration presets (
tslint-react, etc.) and plugin composition
- automatic fixing of formatting & style violations
- integration with MSBuild, Grunt, Gulp, Atom, Eclipse, Emacs, Sublime, Vim, Visual Studio 2015, Visual Studio 2017, Visual Studio code (alternative: use this extension for TS <3.2), WebStorm and more
