Hound uses JSHint (v2.9.5) to review JavaScript code by default.

To change the way JSHint is configured, add .jshintrc file to your project and specify your own config file in .hound.yml

  config_file: .jshintrc

Check out JSHint configuration for supported options.

To ignore certain files and directories just add a .jshintignore file to your project and include path patterns for files/directories that you want ignored. See linter docs for more info ("Ignoring Files" section).

  ignore_file: .javascript_ignore

To disable JavaScript style checking, add the following to your .hound.yml file.

  enabled: false
