Install ESLint Through NPM
Install ESLint globally by running
npm install -g eslint
Create a .eslint File in Your User Directory
We'll create a global .eslint.json file which will dictate linting for all directories below the User directory — for example Users/username/Projects. Linting settings can be overridden on a per-project basis by adding a .eslintrc file to a specific project directory.
- Open the terminal
- Go to the User directory by running
- To install linting rules from a style guide, you'll need a package.json file. Create one by running
npm initand following the prompts
- Generate an .eslintrc file by running
eslint --init. I selected the 'Use a popular style guide' option, followed by 'Airbnb', and finally 'JSON'
Install Sublime Packages
- Open Sublime Text
- Install Package Control if you don't have it
- Install SublimeLinter and SublimeLinter ESLint with Package Control
- Restart Sublime Text
At this point linting should be enabled and you should see warnings appear at the bottom of your editor!
