🔧 Configs

This plugin provides plugin:node/recommended preset config. This preset config:

  • enables the environment of ES2015 (ES6) and Node.js.
  • enables rules which are given ⭐️ in the above table.
  • enables no-process-exit rule because the official document does not recommend a use of process.exit().
  • adds {ecmaVersion: 2019} into parserOptions.
  • adds Atomics and SharedArrayBuffer into globals.
  • adds this plugin into plugins.
