Config Validation

All renovate distributions contain a standalone validator program (renovate-config-validator) that can be used to validate Renovate's configuration.

The validator program checks files passed as CLI arguments. If no argument is given, all default locations (if files exist) and the RENOVATE_CONFIG_FILE environment variable are checked.

$ npm install --global renovate

You can configure a pre-commit hook to validate your configuration automatically. Please check out the renovatebot/pre-commit-hooks repository for more information.
