    $ npm install eslint-config-es \

    The following additional ESLint plugins are included by default, so you don't have to install them:

    Plugin Automatically enabled
    eslint-plugin-eslint-comments Yes
    eslint-plugin-extended Yes
    eslint-plugin-mocha Yes
    eslint-plugin-react No
    eslint-plugin-unicorn Yes
    @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin No

    To enable support for React and JSX, all you need to do is to install the react module. The appropriate rules will become enabled automatically.

    To enable support for TypeScript, all you need to do is to install the typescript module. The appropriate rules will become enabled automatically for .ts and .tsx files. The generated configuration expects a tsconfig.json at the project root.

    Quick Start

    This module contains a very strict ESLint configuration for ES2015 and above, both for Node.js and browser development. Its aims to eradicate any variation in code style. If you can not tell any more, based on little individual manners, who of your co-workers wrote a piece of code, this module succeeded. This helps you to narrow down your focus to pure functionality, as you do not have to think about code styling any more at all.

    To use one of those configurations, create a .eslintrc.json file in your project and use the extends keyword.

      "extends": "es/node"

    Alternatively, you may also use es/browser.

    If you want to override any rules, you can do so in your configuration file. For details on how to do this, e.g. to get an explanation on how to enable or disable specific rules, see the ESLint documentation on extending configuration files.

    Running quality assurance

    To run quality assurance for this module use roboter:

    $ npm run roboter

    Note: npx roboter will not work as our ESLint Rules are written in TypeScript, so they have to be compiled before usage. npm run roboter will do this.

    Better ESLint Rules

    This package has a built-in library that allows defining ESLint-Rules in a more strict but (what we think) better and intuitive format.

    A basic example looks like this:

    const betterRulesRecord: BetterRulesRecord = {
      camelcase: false, // compiles to "camelcase: 'off'"
      forDirection: [], // compiles to "for-direction: 'error'"
      noParens: [ 'always', { otherConfig: 'value' } ], // compiles to "no-parens: [ 'error', 'always', {otherConfig: 'value' } ]"

    To be able to use those rules with ESLint, they have to be compiled with the betterRules.compile method. The whole betterRules package is exported by this library and can be used like this:

    import { betterRules } from 'eslint-config-es';
    const compiledESLintRules = betterRules.compile(betterRulesRecord);
    // Will produce:
      camelcase: 'off',
      'for-direction': [ 'error' ], 
      'no-parens': [ 'error', 'always', { otherConfig: 'value' } ],

    Differences to normal ESLint Rules

    1. Only 2 allowed rule-configs exist:
      1. false for turning it off.
      2. [] (possible empty) to turn it on with severity error and provide additional configuration.
    2. Rules are now in camelCase.
    3. error is the default and only for all rules.


    You can use the withPlugin hook to avoid having to put plugin-rules in quotes ('react/test-rule') like this:

    import { betterRules } from 'eslint-config-es'
    const reactRules: BetterRulesRecord = betterRules.withPlugin('react', {
      booleanPropNaming: false

    Plugin names do not get compiled

    Thus, you can use this hook to avoid weird constructs and streamline your configs:

    const weirdMix: BetterRulesRecord = {
      '@typescript-eslint/arrayType': []
    const betterDefiniton: BetterRulesRecord = 
      betterRules.withPlugin('@typescript-eslint', {
        arrayType: []

    But why?

    1. Turning Rules off with false rather than with a string 'off' is easier to distinguish from turned on rules and strictly avoids typos (false will yield a compiler error if mistyped).
    2. We do not see a value in ESLint warnings, as warnings tend to get ignored.
    3. Because of 2., there is no need for additional abilities to turn on a rule (true, or a string), thus only allowing arrays [] streamlines and simplifies the configuration a lot.
    4. CamelCasing the rules avoids the need to sometimes type property-keys of rules with quotes ' (e.g. { 'for-direction': 'off'}), thus again streamlining configuration.
