Mini Linter Project

Wow. This took longer than I thought it would. Here’s my code for the Mini Linter Project:

I solved it the first time, but then came across this topic, asking for feedback on the same project. I realized there was a lot I could improve in my code, and I set out to do it.

This time I made an effort to wrap the fuctionality inside functions and to store the information inside an object. I might have traded the original simplicity for a bit more complexity but I think I made the code more reusable.

Is there a way I could improve the code, make it more readable or more efficent? I’d love to hear from the community. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. And I’m super open to reviewing other learners’ code. So share your code as well. I’m sure there’s plenty we can learn from each other.

Happy Coding.


Anyone that is struggling or would like an additional resource, please use my code and continue on your learning journey!

I think this is a great example of how diverse coding can be! It is always great to see the way other individuals code and to gain ideas, knowledge, and more experience from it! Thank you for sharing this! I enjoyed looking it over.

Code like this especially helps if you’re someone like me who tends to overthink a lot of the issues that arise in the projects. I end up writing ridiculous code that won’t work and then I get pissed at it, walk away from it for a day or two, maybe do some research or studying in between, come back, and then the answer(s) usually just come to me lol.

Its was nice Exercise i did with the help of walk through video

So I have to admit I was not pleased with Codecademy’s method for several of the tasks. It seemed they made it much more complicated than it needed to be. Possibly more inclusive for previous material. But excessively long and complicated. Why are we using a for loop?

let story = ‘Last weekend, I took literally the most beautiful bike ride of my life. The route is called “The 9W to Nyack” and it actually stretches all the way from Riverside Park in Manhattan to South Nyack, New Jersey. It’s really an adventure from beginning to end! It is a 48 mile loop and it basically took me an entire day. I stopped at Riverbank State Park to take some extremely artsy photos. It was a short stop, though, because I had a really long way left to go. After a quick photo op at the very popular Little Red Lighthouse, I began my trek across the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey. The GW is actually very long - 4,760 feet! I was already very tired by the time I got to the other side. An hour later, I reached Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary, an extremely beautiful park along the coast of the Hudson. Something that was very surprising to me was that near the end of the route you actually cross back into New York! At this point, you are very close to the end.’;

let storyWords = story.split(’ ');


let totalWordCount = storyWords.length

console.log(The Word Count for your story is ${totalWordCount} words.)

let unnecessaryWords = [‘extremely’, ‘literally’, ‘actually’ ];

wordedBetterStory=storyWords.filter(word => {

return !unnecessaryWords.includes(word)



let overusedWords = [‘really’, ‘very’, ‘basically’];

extraWords=storyWords.filter(word => {

return overusedWords.includes(word)


count = extraWords.length

console.log(Your short Story includes ${count} gramatically over used words, we recomend you remove them.)

let numOfPerisodSentances = story.split(’.’);

let numOfExclamationSentances = story.split(’!’);

let totalNumOfSentances =

(numOfPerisodSentances.length) + (numOfExclamationSentances.length)

let wordCount = storyWords.length

console.log(The sentance count for your story is ${totalNumOfSentances} sentances.);

console.log(wordedBetterStory.join(’ '))
