#The stylelint Node API

The stylelint module includes a lint() function that provides the Node API.

stylelint 模块中的 lint() 函数提供 Node API。

  .then(function(resultObject) { .. });


stylelint is an npm package. Install it using:

stylelint 是一个 npm 包。通过以下命令进行安装:

npm install stylelint


Options is an object with the following properties.

Options 是一个对象类型,带有以下属性。

Though both files and code are "optional", you must have one and cannot have both. All other options are optional.

虽然 filescode 是可选的,你必须使用其中一个,不能两个都不使用。所有其他的选项都是可选的。


A CSS string to be linted.

要检测的 CSS 文本字符串。


If using code to pass a source string directly, you can use codeFilename to associate that code with a particular filename.

如果使用 code 直接把源字符串传过去,你可以使用 codeFilename 将代码和一个特定的文件名联系起来。

This can be useful, for example, when making a text editor plugin that passes in code directly but needs to still use the configuration's ignoreFiles functionality to possibly ignore that code.

这会非常有用,比如,当一个文本编辑器插件直接操作代码,但需要使用配置中的 ignoreFiles 功能忽略这些代码。


A stylelint configuration object.

一个 stylelint 配置对象

If no config or configFile is passed, stylelint will look for a .stylelintrc configuration file.

如果没有 configconfigFile,stylelint 将查找 .stylelintrc 配置文件。


An absolute path to the directory that relative paths defining extends and plugins are relative to.

一个定义 extendsplugins 的相对路径的目录的绝对路径。

If the config object passed uses relative paths, e.g. for extends or plugins, you are going to have to pass a configBasedir. If not, you do not need this.

如果 config 对象使用相对路径,比如,对于 extendsplugins,你需要传递 configBasedir。反之,不需要。


The path to a JSON, YAML, or JS file that contains your stylelint configuration object.

一个包含你的stylelint 配置对象的 JSON,YAML 或 JS 文件的路径。

It should be either absolute or relative to the directory that your process is running from (process.cwd()). We'd recommend absolute.



A partial stylelint configuration object whose properties will override the existing config object, whether that config was loaded via the config option or a .stylelintrc file.

部分 stylelint 配置对象的属性将会覆盖已存在的通过 config 选项或 .stylelintrc 文件加载的配置对象。

The difference between the configOverrides and config options is this: If any config object is passed, stylelint does not bother looking for a .stylelintrc file and instead just uses whatever config object you've passed; but if you want to both load a .stylelintrc file and override specific parts of it, configOverrides does just that.

configOverridesconfig 选项的不同点在于:如果使用了 config 对象,stylelint 就不会去查找 .stylelintrc 文件了,而是使用你传入的 config 对象;但是,如果你想加载 .stylelintrc 文件而且像覆盖特定的部分,configOverrides 就派上用场了。


A file glob, or array of file globs. Ultimately passed to node-glob to figure out what files you want to lint.

一个文件 glob,或文件列表 glob。最终通过node-glob指出哪些文件是你想要检测的。

Relative globs are considered relative to process.cwd().

相对的 glob 被认为是相对于 process.cwd()

node_modules and bower_components are always ignored.

node_modulesbower_components 总是被忽略的。


Options: "json"|"string"|"verbose", or a function. Default is "json".

选项:"json"|"string"|"verbose",或一个函数。默认为 "json"

Specify the formatter that you would like to use to format your results.


If you pass a function, it must fit the signature described in the Developer Guide.



If true, all disable comments (e.g. /* stylelint-disable block-no-empty */) will be ignored.

如果为 true,所有的禁用注释(比如,/* stylelint-disable block-no-empty */) 将被忽略。

You can use this option to see what your linting results would be like without those exceptions.



If true, ignoreDisables will also be set to true and the returned data will contain a needlessDisables property, whose value is an array of objects, one for each source, with tells you which stylelint-disable comments are not blocking a lint warning.

如果为 trueignoreDisables 也将被设置为 true, 返回的结果数据将包含一个 needlessDisables 属性,该属性的值是个对象列表,每个对象,告诉你哪些 stylelint 禁用注释不在阻塞检测警告。

Use this report to clean up your codebase, keeping only the stylelint-disable comments that serve a purpose.

使用该报告来清理你的代码块,达到只有 stylelint 禁用注释在起作用的目的。

The recommended way to use this option is through the CLI. It will output a clean report to the console.

推荐通过命令行来使用此选项。 它将在控制台输入一个清晰的报告。


A path to a file containing patterns describing files to ignore. The path can be absolute or relative to process.cwd(). By default, stylelint looks for .stylelintignore in process.cwd(). See Configuration.

一个文件的路径,该文件包含要忽略文件的模式。该路径可以是绝对或相对于 process.cwd() 的路径。默认情况下,stylelint 会查找 在process.cwd() 中查找 .stylelintignore。查看配置


Options: "scss"|"less"|"sugarss"


Specify a non-standard syntax that should be used to parse source stylesheets.


If you do not specify a syntax, non-standard syntaxes will be automatically inferred by the file extensions .scss, .less, and .sss.

如果你不指定一个语法,非标准的语法将会根据文件扩展名 .scss.less.sss 自动推断出来。

See the customSyntax option below if you would like to use stylelint with a custom syntax.

如果你想使用一个自定义的语法,查看下面的 customSyntax 选项。


An absolute path to a custom PostCSS-compatible syntax module.

一个自定义的 PostCSS-compatible syntax 模块的绝对路径。

Note, however, that stylelint can provide no guarantee that core rules will work with syntaxes other than the defaults listed for the syntax option above.

但是请注意,stylelint 不保证核心规则能与自定义的语法正常工作,除非是上面 syntax 选项列出的默认语法。

#The returned promise

stylelint.lint() returns a Promise that resolves with an object containing the following properties:

stylelint.lint() 返回一个 Promise,它 resolve 一个包含以下属性的对象。


Boolean. If true, at least one rule with an "error"-level severity registered a warning.

布尔类型。如果为 true,至少有一条规则是错误级别的警告。


A string displaying the formatted warnings (using the default formatter or whichever you passed).



An array containing all the PostCSS LazyResults that were accumulated during processing.

一个包含所有 PostCSS LazyResults 的列表,它们是在处理过程中积累起来的。


An array containing all the stylelint result objects (the objects that formatters consume).

一个包含所有 stylelint 结果对象(格式化器处理过的对象)的列表。

#Syntax errors

stylelint.lint() does not reject the Promise when your CSS contains syntax errors. It resolves with an object (see The returned promise) that contains information about the syntax error.

当你的 CSS 包含语法错误时,stylelint.lint() 不会 reject 对应的 Promise。它将 resolve 一个包含语法错误信息的对象(查看 返回的 promise)。

#Usage examples

If myConfig contains no relative paths for extends or plugins, you do not have to use configBasedir:

如果 myConfig 包含 extendsplugins 的相对路径,你可以不使用 configBasedir

  config: myConfig,
  files: "all/my/stylesheets/*.css"
  .then(function(data) {
    // do things with data.output, data.errored,
    // and data.results
  .catch(function(err) {
    // do things with err e.g.

If myConfig does contain relative paths for extends or plugins, you do have to use configBasedir:

如果 myConfig 包含 extendsplugins 的相对路径,你必须使用 configBasedir

  config: myConfig,
  configBasedir: path.join(__dirname, "configs"),
  files: "all/my/stylesheets/*.css"
}).then(function() { .. });

Maybe you want to use a CSS string instead of a file glob, and you want to use the string formatter instead of the default JSON:

你可能想使用 CSS 字符串而不是一个文件 glob,而且想使用字符串格式化器而不是默认的 JSON:

  code: "a { color: pink; }",
  config: myConfig,
  formatter: "string"
}).then(function() { .. });

Maybe you want to use my own custom formatter function and parse .scss source files:

你可能想要使用你自定义的格式化函数解析 .scss 源文件:

  config: myConfig,
  files: "all/my/stylesheets/*.scss",
  formatter: function(stylelintResults) { .. },
  syntax: "scss"
}).then(function() { .. });

The same pattern can be used to read Less or SugarSS syntax.

同样的模式可以被用来读取 Less 或 SugarSS 语法。
