  - "defaults"
  - "defaults/configurations/walmart/es6-browser"

NOTE: Extending multiple complete configs can cause unexpected results, if you need to do this you should consider a piecemeal config as explained below. See for details.

Piecemeal Configurations

ESLint configuration is broken apart in ./rules containing ESLint's rules and rules for specific ESLint plugins. The full set of ESLint rules (./rules/eslint) are broken into categories that mirror ESLint's documentation. Under each rule type there are sets of configuration as well as an off.js file which turns off every rule in the category.

  - "defaults/rules/eslint/best-practices/walmart",
  - "defaults/rules/eslint/errors/airbnb"
  - "defaults/rules/eslint/es6/off"
  - "defaults/rules/eslint/node/off"
  "phantom": true


Due to an issue with ESLint, config extension cannot be called from a globally installed (npm install -g eslint) eslint. It can however be run properly using eslint installed directly to your package's node_modules. This can be done by either calling it directly (./node_modules/.bin/eslint .) or from within an npm script since they automatically check local node_modules first. This will be tracked in issue #43.

This package tracks config in the following versions:
