Splunk Search

Are there any lint type tools for the Splunk SPL?

As part of a testing plan, we would like to have a tool check syntax of our block of Splunk queries.

Are there any tools out there that already do this?

There's a visual studio code extension with syntax highlighting, but no linting yet available here:

And an extension with hovers and command description and syntax here:

The SPL editor has syntax highlighting. Also, there are add-ons available for vim and Notepad++ (among others, I'm sure), but AFAIK nothing does everything that lint does.
