I've been working on the Kendo UI Lint integration for vim recently, and wanted to show you a quick demonstration of what I've been doing.

The Way Of The Linter

If you're not familiar with the idea of linting your code, head over to this post from Burke that shows us how linters can help us keep our calm when writing apps by finding errors in our code before we try to run it. In it, Burke introduces the basics of what linting is, how it helps us, and shows us how to use both the JSHint tool and the new Kendo UI Lint tool that I'm showing in this demo video.

The Kendo UI Lint tool gives you a way to verify your Kendo UI configuration without having to run your code and check for errors. It tells you whether or not the configuration options are set correctly, and tells you where the errors are located, if any are there.

The Kendo UI Lint tool can be run from the command line, or from a grunt plugin:

And with the KendoUI-Lint.vim integration project, it can be run from vim directly!

Kendo UI Labs

The Kendo UI Labs are located at http://labs.kendoui.com.

Kendo UI Labs projects are "extensions" to Kendo UI meant to help you stay productive. Though these projects are not officially part of Kendo UI, and therefore not part of the supported product, they do leverage the in-depth knowledge of Kendo UI team members and customers.
