ESLint vs FindBugs: What are the differences?

Developers describe ESLint as "The fully pluggable JavaScript code quality tool". A pluggable and configurable linter tool for identifying and reporting on patterns in JavaScript. Maintain your code quality with ease. On the other hand, FindBugs is detailed as "An open-source static code analyser". It detects possible bugs in Java programs. Potential errors are classified in four ranks: scariest, scary, troubling and of concern. This is a hint to the developer about their possible impact or severity.

ESLint and FindBugs can be primarily classified as "Code Review" tools.

ESLint is an open source tool with 14.6K GitHub stars and 2.5K GitHub forks. Here's a link to ESLint's open source repository on GitHub.

        JavaScript is a language that works wonders when there are tools like ESLint, Prettier, and FlowType that cover your back.

        I use my IDE’s (Visual Studio Code) ESLint integration to validate the code I write in realtime.

        I use ESLint to ensure my JavaScript code meets my team's coding standards, and to avoid known pitfalls. The extensibility allows me to write specialized modules that detect team-specific issues as they occur.
