ESLint plugin and shareable configurations for Login.gov JavaScript standards.

These configurations largely inherit from the TTS JavaScript coding standards, pre-bundled with recommended rulesets and extended to provide support for Login.gov-specific implementation choices (React, Mocha, TypeScript).


Install using NPM or Yarn. ESLint and eslint-plugin-import are required as peer dependencies and should be installed if it is not already.

npm install --save-dev @18f/eslint-plugin-identity eslint eslint-plugin-import

The configuration automatically includes additional behavior if any of the following packages are installed in your project:

  • If eslint-plugin-mocha is installed, the Mocha environment and Mocha-specific rules are enabled.
  • If eslint-plugin-react, eslint-plugin-jsx-a11y, and eslint-plugin-react-hooks are installed, JSX and React rules are enabled.
  • If eslint-plugin-prettier is installed, Prettier rules are enabled.
  • If @typescript-eslint/parser and @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin are installed, TypeScript rules are enabled.


Currently, one configuration is made available for use: the recommended ruleset.

Because the module is published as an ESLint plugin, you should configure it as both a plugins and an extends in your ESLint configuration:

  "extends": ["plugin:@18f/eslint-plugin-identity/recommended"],
  "plugins": ["@18f/eslint-plugin-identity"]

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are the configurations published under an ESLint plugin?

Publishing the package as an ESLint plugin has the advantage of allowing for custom rules to be implemented and used within the same package as the configurations.
