JSLint is the trunk from which JSHint branched. JSLint takes a much more opinionated stance on how to write JavaScript code, pushing you towards only using the parts Douglas Crockford deems to be its "good parts", and away from any code that Crockford believes to have a better solution. The following StackOverflow thread may help you decide which linter is right for you. While there are differences (here are some brief comparisons between it and JSHint / ESLint), each option is extremely customizable.

For a more information about configuring JSLint check out NPM or github.
