vim, syntastic, .jshintrc

I’ve been using Syntastic for a while now. It’s awesome.

One thing it’s missing, however, is the ability to automatically find an appropriate .jshintrc file for the file you’re editing.

Fixed. Put this lot in your .vimrc file:

function s:find_jshintrc(dir)
    let l:found = globpath(a:dir, '.jshintrc')
    if filereadable(l:found)
        return l:found
    endif

    let l:parent = fnamemodify(a:dir, ':h')
    if l:parent != a:dir
        return s:find_jshintrc(l:parent)
    endif

    return "~/.jshintrc"
endfunction

function UpdateJsHintConf()
    let l:dir = expand('%:p:h')
    let l:jshintrc = s:find_jshintrc(l:dir)
    let g:syntastic_javascript_jshint_conf = l:jshintrc
endfunction
