unittest_jshint 1.0

Python unittest integration for jshint
unittest_jshint is a tool that integrates JSHint with Python's unittest module. This package was inspired by gocept.jslint.

JSHint is a community-driven tool to detect errors and potential problems in JavaScript code and to enforce your team's coding conventions.

It provides a special JSHintTestCase class that collects JavaScript files (in a configurable manner) and dynamically generates a test method for each file that calls jslint on that file.


To use it, create a test class like this::

    class MyPackageJSLintTest(unittest_jshint.JSHintTestCase):

        include = (

        options = ( 'curly', 'eqeqeq', )

include is a list of "resource paths" of the form packagename:path (passed to pkg_resources).

exclude can be a list of filenames (without path) that will not be collected.

options is a list of arguments that are passed to JSHint (see its documentation for details). The default value is::

    options = ()

All files ending in .js contained in each of these paths will be collected, and the test class will grow a method named test_< filename >.js.

You can ignore JSHint error by setting ignore on the test class (a list of substrings that are matched against each JHLint output line):

    ignore = (
        "Use a named parameter",
