https://xkcd.com/1513 Linting is a process for identifying bugs and stylistic errors in your code. The process is carried out by analysis tools called ‘linters’, which are widely available for every major programming language. Linters will flag issues and style violations in your code, sort of like a spell checker! In addition to linters, there are a wide range of ‘auto-formatters’ that can also carry out these checks, and even make the necessary changes for you.
