Linting

Linters are tools that automatically verify specific rules against your code or documentation. This is useful for enforcing a style guide, or for catching commonly mitaken branding issues.

Write Good

“Naive linter for English prose for developers who can’t write good and wanna learn to do other stuff good too.”

This linter is a prose linter for English. It has a number of checks for things like:

  • Passive voice
  • Lexical illusions
  • Weasel words

It works as a command line interface or a JavaScript library.
