If you belong to the IT industry that you are definitely aware of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

CSS is a style sheet language used to describe the presentation semantics (the look and formatting) of a document written in a markup language. Its most common application is to style web pages written in HTML.

Developers creating websites / portals need to learn and apply CSS for not only better presentation but a building a maintainable project. For this we use CSS.

Analyzing, debugging & correcting syntactical, semantics errors in CSS is almost impossible in tools we generally use.

CSS Lint tool is of a great help to the developers community.

CSS Lint is a tool to help point out problems with your CSS code. It does basic syntax checking as well as applying a set of rules to the code that look for problematic patterns or signs of inefficiency. The rules are all pluggable, so you can easily write your own or omit ones you don’t want.

Basic operations that this tool can do/suggest:

  1. Parsing errors fixed
  2. Empty rules removed
  3. Correct properties for Display
  4. Too many floats used
  5. Too many web fonts used

etc….

You just need to provide your CSS and it would recommend / correct errors that it may find.

It is definitely an amazing tool.
