The online version is accessible through the official website in which users can paste code to run the application online. The command-line version of JSHint (distributed as a Node.js module), enables automated linting processes by integrating JSHint into a project's development workflow.
JSHint is distributed under an MIT license, except for one file still under the JSLint License which is a slightly modified version of the MIT license. The additional clause specifies that the software shall be used "for Good and not Evil". This clause, according to the Free Software Foundation, made the software non-free.
In August 2020, all code under the previous JSLint License was replaced with open-source software, making the software fully free software.

designed to be less opinionated and more configurable
