    💿 Installation

    npm install --save-dev eslint eslint-plugin-toml


    • ESLint v6.0.0 and above
    • Node.js v12.22.x, v14.17.x, v16.x and above

    📖 Usage


    Use .eslintrc.* file to configure rules. See also:

    Example .eslintrc.js:

    module.exports = {
      extends: [
        // add more generic rulesets here, such as:
        // 'eslint:recommended',
      rules: {
        // override/add rules settings here, such as:
        // 'toml/rule-name': 'error'

    This plugin provides configs:

    • plugin:toml/base ... Configuration to enable correct TOML parsing.
    • plugin:toml/recommended ... Above, plus rules to prevent errors or unintended behavior.
    • plugin:toml/standard ... Above, plus rules to enforce the common stylistic conventions.

    Note that these configurations do not enable ESLint's core rules. For example, the following style rules can also be used in TOML.

        "rules": {
            "comma-spacing": "error",
            "no-multi-spaces": ["error", { "exceptions": { "TOMLKeyValue": true } }],
            "no-multiple-empty-lines": "error",
            "no-trailing-spaces": "error"

    See the rule list to get the rules that this plugin provides.

    Parser Configuration

    If you have specified a parser, you need to configure a parser for .toml.

    For example, if you are using the "@babel/eslint-parser", configure it as follows:

    module.exports = {
      // ...
      extends: ["plugin:toml/standard"],
      // ...
      parser: "@babel/eslint-parser",
      // Add an `overrides` section to add a parser configuration for TOML.
      overrides: [
          files: ["*.toml"],
          parser: "toml-eslint-parser",
      // ...

    Running ESLint from the command line

    If you want to run eslint from the command line, make sure you include the .toml extension using the --ext option or a glob pattern, because ESLint targets only .js files by default.


    eslint --ext .js,.toml src
    eslint "src/**/*.{js,toml}"

    💻 Editor Integrations

    Visual Studio Code

    Use the dbaeumer.vscode-eslint extension that Microsoft provides officially.

    You have to configure the eslint.validate option of the extension to check .toml files, because the extension targets only *.js or *.jsx files by default.

    Example .vscode/settings.json:

        "eslint.validate": [
