    JavaScript Semifour-Standard Style

    ![npm][npm-image] ![downloads][downloads-image]

    One Semicolon for the Dark Lord on his dark throne

    All the goodness of feross/standard with semicolons and four-space indent


    npm install semifour-standard



    • semicolons
    • four-space indent
    • Check feross/standard for the rest of the rules.


    The easiest way to use JavaScript Semifour-Standard Style to check your code is to install it globally as a Node command line program. To do so, simply run the following command in your terminal (flag -g installs semifour-standard globally on your system, omit it if you want to install in the current working directory):

    npm install semifour-standard -g

    After you've done that you should be able to use the semifour-standard program. The simplest use case would be checking the style of all JavaScript files in the current working directory:

    $ semifour-standard
    Error: Use JavaScript Semifour-Standard Style
      lib/torrent.js:950:11: Expected '===' and instead saw '=='.

    What you might do if you're clever

    1. Add it to package.json
      "name": "my-cool-package",
      "devDependencies": {
        "semifour-standard": "*"
      "scripts": {
        "test": "semifour-standard && node my-normal-tests-littered-with-semicolons.js"
    1. Check style automatically when you run npm test
    $ npm test
    Error: Code style check failed:
      lib/torrent.js:950:11: Expected '===' and instead saw '=='.
    1. Never give style feedback on a pull request again! (unless it's about semicolons)

    Custom Parser

    To use a custom parser, install it from npm (example: npm install babel-eslint) and add this to your package.json:

      "semifour-standard": {
        "parser": "babel-eslint"


    Install Syntastic and add these lines to .vimrc:

    let g:syntastic_javascript_checkers=['standard']
    let g:syntastic_javascript_standard_exec = 'semifour-standard'

    For automatic formatting on save, add these two lines to .vimrc:

    autocmd bufwritepost *.js silent !semifour-standard % --fix
    set autoread

    Ignoring files

    Just like in standard, The paths node_modules/**, *.min.js, bundle.js, coverage/**, hidden files/folders (beginning with .), and all patterns in a project's root .gitignore file are automatically excluded when looking for .js files to check.

    Sometimes you need to ignore additional folders or specific minfied files. To do that, add a semifour-standard.ignore property to package.json:

      "ignore": [

    Make it look snazzy

    If you want prettier output, just install the snazzy package and pipe semifour-standard to it:

    $ semifour-standard --verbose | snazzy

    See feross/standard for more information.


    npm i semifour-standard
