ESLint configuration combining:

The configuration is very opinionated but you can override specific rules in your .eslintrc to fit your needs and coding style.


$ npm install -D eslint-config-standard-prettier-fp eslint@^6.0.0-alpha.0 eslint-config-prettier@^4.2.0 eslint-config-standard@^12.0.0 eslint-import-resolver-node@^0.3.2 eslint-plugin-ava@^6.0.0 eslint-plugin-eslint-comments@^3.1.1 eslint-plugin-filenames@^1.3.2 eslint-plugin-fp@^2.3.0 eslint-plugin-html@^5.0.3 eslint-plugin-import@^2.17.2 eslint-plugin-markdown@^1.0.0 eslint-plugin-node@^9.0.1 eslint-plugin-promise@^4.1.1 eslint-plugin-standard@^4.0.0 eslint-plugin-unicorn@^8.0.2 eslint-plugin-you-dont-need-lodash-underscore@^6.4.0 prettier@^1.17.1

Then add the following files.


extends: standard-prettier-fp/.eslintrc.yml




* text=auto eol=lf

Finally copy the .editorconfig:

$ cp node_modules/eslint-config-standard-prettier-fp/.editorconfig .


prettier must be run before eslint to avoid conflicts.

We recommend using first prettier --write then eslint --fix --cache.

Do not forget to add .eslintcache to your .gitignore file.

Coding style

Functional programming

State should be immutable.

Variables and object properties should be read-only. They should be copied instead of mutated. Assignment should only happen during declaration.

The following patterns should be avoided as they imply state:

  • loops (for, while). Use functional methods (like and Array.filter()) and recursion instead.
  • classes/OOP. To inherit/share behavior, use composition or generic programming instead.
  • events. Use promises and streams instead.

Global variables should not be used except the ones that are built-in (e.g. Object).

Throwing exceptions is allowed as this can simplify code.


Code should be split into small files and functions:

  • files have at most 90 non-empty lines and 10 dependencies.
  • functions have at most 4 branches and 10 statements.
  • branches/blocks should not be nested.
  • lines are at most 80 characters long.

Modern JavaScript

  • ES modules. Exports should be named (no export default).
  • object and array destructuring.
  • object spreading: { ...object } instead of Object.assign({}, ...object)
  • arguments spreading: funcName(...args) instead of, ...args)
  • parameters spreading: function(...args) instead of function(arguments)
  • template strings instead of concatenation.
  • async/await instead of explicit promises or callbacks.
  • vanilla JavaScript instead of Lodash/Underscore.
  • only JavaScript features supported by the Node.js version specified in your package.json engines field.


The configuration is very explicit and enforces strict linting. This should help you find bugs and maintain a consistent coding style:

  • no dead code.
  • typecasting should be explicit.
  • file dependencies should be sorted.
  • variable names should remain short.
  • constants should be assigned to variables.
  • avoiding turning off ESLint rules with comments.
  • RegExps should use the u flag.
  • no variables shadowing.

Other styling rules

  • named parameters (i.e. passing an object as single parameter) instead of positional parameters.
  • function declarations should be const funcName = function() { ... }

HTML and Markdown

eslint-plugin-html and eslint-plugin-markdown are included so you can lint JavaScript inside HTML or Markdown files.
