eslint-plugin-eslint-plugin Build Status

An ESLint plugin for linting ESLint plugins


You'll first need to install ESLint:

$ npm i eslint --save-dev

Next, install eslint-plugin-eslint-plugin:

$ npm install eslint-plugin-eslint-plugin --save-dev

Note: If you installed ESLint globally (using the -g flag) then you must also install eslint-plugin-eslint-plugin globally.


Add eslint-plugin to the plugins section of your .eslintrc configuration file. You can omit the eslint-plugin- prefix:

    "plugins": [

Then configure the rules you want to use under the rules section.

    "rules": {
        "eslint-plugin/no-deprecated-report-api": "error"

Supported Rules

✔️ indicates that a rule is recommended for all users. 🛠 indicates that a rule is fixable.

test-case-property-ordering 🛠 require the properties of a test case to be placed in a consistent order

Supported Presets

Presets are enabled by adding a line to the extends list in your config file. For example, to enable the recommended preset, use:

    "extends": [
  • recommended enables all recommended rules from this plugin.

  • rules-recommended enables all recommended rules that are aimed at linting ESLint rule files.

  • tests-recommended enables all recommended rules that are aimed at linting ESLint test files.

  • all enables all rules in this plugin.

  • rules enables all rules that are aimed at linting ESLint rule files.

  • tests enables all rules that are aimed at linting ESLint test files.

The list of recommended rules will only change in a major release of this plugin. However, new non-recommended rules might be added in a minor release of this plugin. Therefore, the using the all, rules, and tests presets is not recommended for production use, because the addition of new rules in a minor release could break your build.
