Thank you! That's a good point to start from.

I previously received this answer from the eslint maling list:

If the editor can execute Node.js directly (like Atom or Visual Studio
> Code), you can use Node.js API: http://eslint.org/docs/

> Otherwise (like Sublime Text or Vim), maybe you can use CLI and

But if there are plugins for sublime or vim using CLI, it seems that the
CLI way is not that bad.
BTW, I forgot to link to the list of known editors integrations with ESLint:

What about Vala?
it's getting closer to stability means that it'll be soon inside Geany
