$ npm init
$ npm install textlint --save-dev
$ npm install textlint-rule-max-ten textlint-rule-spellcheck-tech-word textlint-rule-no-mix-dearu-desumasu --save-dev

Create .textlintrc

$ touch .textlintrc
{ "rules": { "max-ten": { "max": 3 }, "spellcheck-tech-word": true, "no-mix-dearu-desumasu": true }

You can also set parameters to Options (see below).
