Vim - Could Not Invoke JSLint

If you’re running MacVim with Janus and have upgraded to Lion, you may have noticed a little error when you open JavaScript files:

Error detected while processing function 87_JSLint: Line 33: could not invoke JSLint!

It seems many are having this issue. There are 2 things to check:

  1. Make sure you have Node in your path. Confirm this by typing which node and make sure it resolves a binary somewhere on your system.
  2. Open up your ~/.vimrc.local and add this command:
1
2
" Use Node.js for JavaScript interpretation
let $JS_CMD='node'

Kudos to eventualbuddha for figuring this out.
