    This project configures ESLint to parse JavaScript with the following in mind by default:

    • ECMAScript modules are enabled.
    • All features up to ECMAScript 2021 are enabled.

    Note: This project makes no other assumption about your JavaScript environment, you must configure that yourself. See


    This project currently includes configuration for the following plugins:

    Plugin Required dependency
    eslint-plugin-import Yes
    eslint-plugin-promise Yes
    eslint-plugin-vue Only when using vue related configuration.
    eslint-plugin-node Only when using node related configuration.

    Note: You will have to install the above plugins yourself as they are peer dependencies.
