Recommended config

This plugin exports a recommended config that enforces good practices.

Enable it in your package.json with the extends option:

	"name": "my-awesome-project",
	"eslintConfig": {
		"extends": "plugin:ava/recommended"

See the ESLint docs for more information about extending config files.

Note: This config will also enable the correct parser options and environment.
