JSHint patches are landing in WordPress Core

Yesterday we formally kicked off the work to fix JSHint errors in WordPress Core, after a week of preparation, decisions, and work on the JavaScript Code Standards guide. I’m really excited to see how excited everybody has been for this initiative, and tickets are already coming in hard and fast to fix errors in core JS files. Yesterday alone something on the order of half a dozen patches landed in core—won’t take long, at this rate!

With a passing JSHint run we’ll be one step closer to having the front-end tooling infrastructure we deserve. It’s an exciting time to be involved in the project, and I’m grateful to Andrew Nacin, Tom McFarlin and everyone else who’s been supporting and encouraging our efforts.
