ESLint is a formatter for JS language. It's very useful, especially with JS frameworks. You can configure it with some IDE and here, we will see how to install it with Visual Studio Code:

To install Visual Studio Code TODO

I. Install globally ESLint

npm install -g eslint
# OR
yarn global add eslint

II. Visual Studio Code configuration

Download ESLint extension for VSCode, to do this, go to Extensions panel of VSCode and search ESLint (it have orange logo) and download it.

Use shortcut Ctrl + Alt + P and search JSON to select Preferences: Open Settings(JSON). This will open JSON configuration of Visual Studo Code, you have just to add this on your current config:

"eslint.validate": [
"editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
"source.fixAll.eslint": true

III. Configure your VueJS project (v2.6)

I advice to create a new VueJS repository with vue create, you will can choose eslint when you create your new project. You will have all basic config for ESLint with this command.


To use vue command, install it with:

yarn global add @vue/cli

III. A. On existing project

If your project exist without ESLint, it's possible to add package to config it.


This is an exemple, you can have different configurations with ESLint and VueJS

To use ESLint, you need to add some packages to your project. This is basics packages, with ESLint and Prettier:

yarn add eslint prettier babel-eslint eslint-plugin-prettier eslint-plugin-vue @vue/eslint-config-prettier @vue/cli-plugin-eslint

After this, you have to create somes files at root of your project:

📦 vuejs-repository
┣ 📂 public
┣ 📂 src
┣ 📜 .browserslistrc
┣ 📜 .editorconfig
┣ 📜 .eslintrc.js
┣ 📜 .prettierrc
┣ 📜 babel.config.js
┣ 📜 package.json
module.exports = {
root: true,
env: {
node: true
extends: ['plugin:vue/essential', 'eslint:recommended', '@vue/prettier'],
parserOptions: {
parser: 'babel-eslint'
rules: {
'no-console': process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production' ? 'warn' : 'off',
'no-debugger': process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production' ? 'warn' : 'off'
"semi": false,
"arrowParens": "always",
"singleQuote": true
> 1%
last 2 versions
not dead
module.exports = {
presets: ['@vue/cli-plugin-babel/preset']

When you create these files: .eslintrc.js, .prettierrc, .browserslistrc, babel.config.js, you can remove any info about these entry into package.json. So clean your package.json if it's needed:

"name": "my-app-classic",
"version": "0.1.0",
"private": true,
"scripts": {
"serve": "vue-cli-service serve",
"build": "vue-cli-service build",
"lint": "vue-cli-service lint"
"dependencies": {
"core-js": "^3.6.4",
"vue": "^2.6.11"
"devDependencies": {
"@vue/cli-plugin-babel": "~4.3.0",
"@vue/cli-plugin-eslint": "~4.3.0",
"@vue/cli-service": "~4.3.0",
"@vue/eslint-config-prettier": "^6.0.0",
"babel-eslint": "^10.1.0",
"eslint": "^6.7.2",
"eslint-plugin-prettier": "^3.1.1",
"eslint-plugin-vue": "^6.2.2",
"prettier": "^1.19.1",
"vue-template-compiler": "^2.6.11"

If your package.json have some differences with this, it's not very important.

III. B. Optional .editorconfig

Now, you can create another new file: .editorconfig. It config file used for keep same indent into all files for all developers on project. This is an example:

root = true

charset = utf-8
end_of_line = lf
insert_final_newline = true
indent_style = tab
indent_size = tab
trim_trailing_whitespace = true

indent_style = space
indent_size = 4

indent_style = space
indent_size = 2


yarn add -D @vue/eslint-config-prettier eslint eslint-config-standard eslint-config-vuepress eslint-plugin-import eslint-plugin-node eslint-plugin-prettier eslint-plugin-promise eslint-plugin-standard eslint-plugin-vue lint-staged prettier prettier-config-vuepress @vue/cli-plugin-eslint prettier-config-vuepress
