Okay wait a minute. @jschell was clearly talking about compiled (and implied strongly typed) languages in their post.

I can think of a ton of reasons why someone would want to lint JS code, or for that matter any duck typed code, but even moreso JS with it's sort of haphazard evolution from ECMAScript and the syntax weirdities that brings.

None of them really apply to C and C++, unless you stretch.

Modern compilers are really good at teasing out potential problems in your code that would otherwise be caught by static analysis tools.

That doesn't really apply to JS.

So this is apples and oranges.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
