Sass Lint vs Stylelint: What are the differences?
What is Sass Lint ? Pure Node.js Sass linting. It is a Node-only Sass linter for both sass and scss syntax. It can be run through a command line interface. Special comments can be used to disable and enable certain rules throughout your source files in a variety of scenarios.
What is Stylelint? A mighty, modern CSS linter. A mighty, modern CSS linter that helps you enforce consistent conventions and avoid errors in your stylesheets.
Sass Lint and Stylelint belong to "Code Review" category of the tech stack.
Sass Lint and Stylelint are both open source tools. It seems that Stylelint with 6.85K GitHub stars and 628 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Sass Lint with 1.7K GitHub stars and 550 GitHub forks.

Stylelint has a broader approval, being mentioned in 32 company stacks & 36 developers stacks; compared to Sass Lint , which is listed in 3 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.
Scenario: I want to integrate Prettier in our code base which is currently using ESLint (for .js and .scss both). The project is using gulp.
It doesn't feel quite right to me to use ESLint, I wonder if it would be better to use Stylelint or Sass Lint instead.
I completed integrating ESLint + Prettier, Planning to do the same with [ Stylelint || Sasslint || EsLint] + Prettier.
And have gulp 'fix' on file save (Watcher).
Any recommendation is appreciated.
In the case of .js files I would recommend using both Eslint and Prettier.
You can set up Prettier as an Eslint rule using the following plugin:
And in order to avoid conflicts between Prettier and Eslint, you can use this config:
Which turns off all Eslint rules that are unnecessary or might conflict with Prettier.
Pura vida! Well, I had a similar issue and at the end I decided to use Stylelint + Prettier for that job, in our case, we wanted that our linting process includes the SCSS files and not only the JS file, base on that we concluded that using only ESLint to do both things wasn't the best option, so, we integrated prettier with Stylelint, and for that we used a neat plugin that allowed us to use Prettier inside Stylelint here is the link, https://github.com/prettier/stylelint-prettier#recommended-configuration, I hope that this can help you, hasta pronto!, :)
you don't actually have to choose between these tools as they have vastly different purposes. i think its more a matter of understanding how to use them.
while eslint and stylelint are used to notify you about code quality issues, to guide you to write better code, prettier automatically handles code formatting (without notifying me). nothing else.
prettier and eslint both officially discourage using the eslint-plugin-prettier way, as these tools actually do very different things. autofixing with linters on watch isnt a great idea either. auto-fixing should only be done intentionally. you're not alone though, as a lot of devs set this up wrong.
i encourage you to think about what problem you're trying to solve and configure accordingly.
for my teams i set it up like this: - eslint, stylelint, prettier locally installed for cli use and ide support - eslint config prettier (code formatting rules are not eslints business, so dont warn me about it) - vscode workspace config: format on save - separate npm scripts for linting, and formatting - precommit hooks (husky)
so you can easily integrate with gulp. its just js after all ;)
