The ESLint custom parser for .vue files.

⤴️ Motivation

This parser allows us to lint the <template> of .vue files. We can make mistakes easily on <template> if we use complex directives and expressions in the template. This parser and the rules of eslint-plugin-vue would catch some of the mistakes.

💿 Installation

$ npm install --save-dev eslint vue-eslint-parser
  • Requires Node.js 6.5.0 or later.
  • Requires ESLint 5.0.0 or later.
  • Requires babel-eslint 8.1.1 or later if you want it. (optional)
  • Requires @typescript-eslint/parser 1.0.0 or later if you want it. (optional)

📖 Usage

  1. Write parser option into your .eslintrc.* file.
  2. Use glob patterns or --ext .vue CLI option.
    "extends": "eslint:recommended",
    "parser": "vue-eslint-parser"
$ eslint "src/**/*.{js,vue}"
# or
$ eslint src --ext .vue

🔧 Options

parserOptions has the same properties as what espree, the default parser of ESLint, is supporting. For example:

    "parser": "vue-eslint-parser",
    "parserOptions": {
        "sourceType": "module",
        "ecmaVersion": 2018,
        "ecmaFeatures": {
            "globalReturn": false,
            "impliedStrict": false,
            "jsx": false


You can use parserOptions.parser property to specify a custom parser to parse <script> tags. Other properties than parser would be given to the specified parser. For example:

    "parser": "vue-eslint-parser",
    "parserOptions": {
        "parser": "babel-eslint",
        "sourceType": "module",
        "allowImportExportEverywhere": false
    "parser": "vue-eslint-parser",
    "parserOptions": {
        "parser": "@typescript-eslint/parser"

If the parserOptions.parser is false, the vue-eslint-parser skips parsing <script> tags completely. This is useful for people who use the language ESLint community doesn't provide custom parser implementation.

🎇 Usage for custom rules / plugins

  • This parser provides parserServices to traverse <template>.
    • defineTemplateBodyVisitor(templateVisitor, scriptVisitor) ... returns ESLint visitor to traverse <template>.
    • getTemplateBodyTokenStore() ... returns ESLint TokenStore to get the tokens of <template>.
    • getDocumentFragment() ... returns the root VDocumentFragment.
  • is <template> AST specification.
  • mustache-interpolation-spacing.js is an example.

⚠️ Known Limitations

Some rules make warnings due to the outside of <script> tags. Please disable those rules for .vue files as necessary.
