Javascript Question

JSLint throwing error when using console.log()

The text editor that I am using is Brackets. I am encountering an error message when I try to use

console.log
in any JS file.

1 - Create/Open an JS file

2 - Type console.log('hello world');

3 - Save the file

JSLint Problem:

error message in JSLint 'console' was used before it was defined.

Answer

Use the devel option:

true if browser globals that are useful in development should be predefined, and if debugger statements and TODO comments should be allowed. It adds the same globals as this directive:

/*global
alert, confirm, console, prompt
*/

Be sure to turn this option off before going into production.

 /*jslint devel: true */
