Linting is the practice of using tools that analyze the code in your project for programming errors, stylistic inconsistencies, and other issues that can make code difficult to read, debug, or maintain over time. Linting is an important part of ensuring quality in a codebase because code that is written inconsistently or which uses suboptimal approaches may still execute flawlessly.
