Weil introduced webhint as an answer to the feedback she received from hundreds of web developers while working on the Microsoft Edge dev tools: Making sites accessible, PWA-ready, with all of these sorts of up-to-the-minute best practices and latest features in place is really hard work.

Webhint self-describes as a customizable linting tool that helps developers improve sites’ accessibility, speed, cross-browser compatibility, and more by checking the authored code for best practices and common errors.
Webhint may run as a command-line application (that issues an HTML report with a short summary of findings) and be integrated into a CI workflow. It is also available as a Visual Studio extension and may then display detected issues and recommendations directly in the IDE, while coding.
Webhint can also be installed as a browser extension (for Firefox, Edge and Chrome browsers) and allows developers to do on-demand runtime analysis on a page while debugging or after a page was deployed. Lastly, webhint can also be run from the webhint scanner site on any page without installing anything.
