ECMAScript beautifier based on eslint

screenshot

Motivation

JS Beautifier is so great that it can reduce formatting issues, however, there are two major issues: a) customization and b) ES.next.

a) If you like the result of code generated by JS Beautifier, it's just fine, but if you can't manage with its configuration options, you are out of luck.

b) If you are using a new ECMAScript feature or features that are not even standardized, you are also out of luck, because the parser does not support the features. Among such is JSX.

ESLint is a linting tool widely used, which adopts a pluggable architecture so that it's highly customizable. It also has an ability to automatically fix problems. There's lots of plugins developed, forming a big ecosystem.

So, why not build a beautifying tool using eslint?

Usage (CLI)

Install

npm install es-beautifier -g --only=production
es-beautifier --help

Example

es-beautifier < file.js > file-beautified.js
es-beautifier file-to-be-beautified.js

Usage (Vim)

Example with NeoBundle

NeoBundle 'dai-shi/es-beautifier', {'rtp': 'contrib/vim', 'external_commands': 'node', 'build_commands': 'npm', 'build': {'others': 'npm install --only=production'}}
autocmd FileType javascript nnoremap <buffer> <Leader>e :call EsBeautifier()<cr>
autocmd FileType javascript vnoremap <buffer> <Leader>e :call RangeEsBeautifier()<cr>

Usage (Atom)

https://atom.io/packages/es-beautifier

Toggle the Command Palette and enter "es-beautifier".

For the long term use, you might want to configure keybindings, for example:

'atom-text-editor':
  'shift-cmd-e': 'es-beautifier'

If you want to use your eslintrc files do the following, but please be reminded that it may conflict with the beautifier rule and may cause unexpected behavior.

'es-beautifier':
  'useEslintrc': true

Usage (Visual Studio Code)

ext install vscode-es-beautifier

Open the Change Language Mode (Cmd-K M / Ctrl-K M) and select "es-beautifier". You can format code just like the original formatter.

For the long term use, you might want to configure it in settings.json:

{
  "files.associations": {"*.js":"es-beautifier"}
}

If you want to use your eslintrc files add the following, but please be reminded that it may conflict with the beautifier rule and may cause unexpected behavior.

"[es-beautifier]": {
  "useEslintrc": true
}

Usage (eslint-plugin)

You can customize it just like a normal eslint plugin.

Install

In your project directory:

npm install eslint eslint-plugin-es-beautifier --save-dev

Example

Add the following to your .eslintrc or eslintConfig in package.json.

{
  "plugins": [
    "es-beautifier"
  ],
  "extends": [
    "plugin:es-beautifier/standard"
  ]
}

Add the following scripts in package.json.

{
  "scripts": {
    "beautify": "eslint --fix ."
  }
}

Run:

npm run beautify
