ESLint with React.js & ES6+

ESLint is a static lint tool for JavaScript. Before running your code, the tool find obvious bug.
In addtion, it helps to unify your code styles such as how to use parentheses and spaces, etc.
In this article, I will explain the ESLint configuration for checking React.js written with ES6+.

Aribnb’s style guide is really great and easy to understand. ESLint also check your code based on the style guide.

🐰 Usage in Command Line

./node_modules/bin/eslint sample.js

🐡 Usage in overcommit

overcommit is a git hook management tool which can execute various command before git commit, push or etc.
The following configuration is how to use ESLint with overcommit.

At first, overcommit configuration like this:

# .overcommit.yml (Add following comfigugration)
# Style Check for JavaScript
enabled: true
command: ['./client/node_modules/.bin/eslint', 'client/components/*', '-c', 'client/.eslintrc.json']
include: '**/*.jsx'

Ater the configuration, execute bundle exec overcommit --sign, so ESLint will be executed automatically before git push.

😸 Usage in wercker

The configuration of free CI wercker is as follows:

- bundle-install:
jobs: 4

- install-packages:
name: Install node.js, build-essential, libpq-dev
packages: build-essential libpq-dev nodejs npm nodejs-legacy

name: NPM install
code: npm install -D
