Is there a way to ignore folders like the node_modules folder?

stephnr commented Jul 8, 2015

@ORESoftware, have you considered adding a .jshintignore file?

dkebler commented Dec 17, 2015

Getting that same error as @emj365
line 0, col 0, Bad option: 'ender'
there is no option 'ender' in the documentation. So I am guess it has been deprecated/removed.
removing this line from file and all is well.

BTW Thx for this gist!

Expected and identifier instead saw 'import' in Visual Studio..what are the possible fixes for this ? (JS Lint)

I don't want to add /*jshint esnext: true */ in each file what should i do ?

Great dotfile! Changing a few tidbits, but using this as my global. I use ES6.
