Question

Answer
Two are JSLint and JSHint.

Comments
JSLint is a tool written by famed Douglas Crockford. It’s a tool that detects potential errors and stylistic concerns in your code. JSHint is a fork of JSLint, and it provides a less strict, more customizable experience. Both are excellent options, and integrating one or both into your development process is a great way to enforce JS code conventions. Additionally, Crockford has provided rules on JavaScript style in the following documents:
Part One deals with syntax and basic patterns.
Part Two deals with language idioms.
Code Conventions for the JavaScript Language contains points from the first two, with a small number of style guidelines.
