Gulp Error: Cannot find module ‘jshint/src/cli’;

In the book “Automatic Construction of Web Front End”, according to the second chapter “Introduction to Gulp”, in order to use JSHint to conduct code style check, after installing Gulp-Jshint, I wrote the following example code:

const jshint = require('gulp-jshint');

gulp.task('test', () => {
    return gulp.src('./app/**/*.js')
        .pipe(jshint())
        .pipe(jshint.reporter('default'))
        .pipe(jshint.reporter('fail'))
});

When running gulp test, the following error occurs:

module.js:442
    throw err;
    ^

Analysis of the
The console reports an error and cannot find Jshint. The easiest way to resolve this error is to install the package that cannot be found.
The solution

NPM install --save-dev jshint
When using JSHint for code style checking, JSHint and gulp-jshint can be installed directly once.
namely:
NPM install --save-dev jshint gulp-jshint
