    🏁 Getting Started

    Follow all these instructions and learn the best way to take benefits from this package.

    📚 Prerequisite

    • Node
    • npm/yarn

    🧰 Installation

    1. Global installation (preferred way)

      npm i eslintrc-generator -g

      Note: Global installation is not possible with yarn v2 as far as I know, (please guide me if I am wrong). If you are using yarn v1 then use yarn global add eslintrc-generator. And I recommend using the global method

    2. Per project installation

      npm i eslintrc-generator
      yarn add eslintrc-generator
    3. Command to generate RC file

      npx eslintrc-generator
      • Generate via CLI arguments

        npx eslintrc-generator -t js -c node -l ts -m yarn -rp
        generate-eslintrc -t js -c node -l ts -m yarn -rp

    🎈 Usage

    The sole motive of this package is to improve Developer Experience. The package is made to save time configuring Eslint and Prettier, with your project (if you have done this before you already know the pain). The tool will ask you certain questions, prepare a config and required packages list based on your answers, install all the packages and create the RC file perfectly compatible with your project as well as Prettier. You just need to focus on your awesome project.
