// This file (`.jshintrc`) exists to help with consistency of code
// throughout this package, and throughout Sails and the Node-Machine project.
// To review what each of these options mean, see:
// (or:
// Prevent overwriting prototypes of native classes like `Array`.
// (doing this is _never_ ok in any of our packages that are intended
// to be used as dependencies of other developers' modules and apps)
// "freeze": true,
// Allow the use of `eval` and `new Function()`
// (we sometimes actually need to use these things)
"evil": true,
// Tolerate funny-looking dashes in RegExp literals.
// (see
"regexdash": true,
// The potential runtime "Environments" (as defined by jshint)
// that the _style_ of code written in this package should be
// compatible with (not the code itself, of course).
"browser": true,
"node": true,
"wsh": true,
// Tolerate the use `[]` notation when dot notation would be possible.
// (this is sometimes preferable for readability)
"sub": true,
// Do NOT suppress warnings about mixed tabs and spaces
// (two spaces always, please; see `.editorconfig`)
"smarttabs": false,
// Suppress warnings about trailing whitespace
// (this is already enforced by the .editorconfig, so no need to warn as well)
"trailing": false,
// Suppress warnings about the use of expressions where fn calls or assignments
// are expected, and about using assignments where conditionals are expected.
// (while generally a good idea, without this setting, JSHint needlessly lights up warnings
// in existing, working code that really shouldn't be tampered with. Pandora's box and all.)
"expr": true,
"boss": true,
// Do NOT suppress warnings about using functions inside loops
// (in the general case, we should be using iteratee functions with `_.each()`
// or `Array.prototype.forEach()` instead of `for` or `while` statements
// anyway. This warning serves as a helpful reminder.)
"loopfunc": false,
// Suppress warnings about "weird constructions"
// i.e. allow code like:
// ```
// (new (function OneTimeUsePrototype () { } ))
// ```
// (sometimes order of operations in JavaScript can be scary. There is
// nothing wrong with using an extra set of parantheses when the mood
// strikes or you get "that special feeling".)
"supernew": true,
// Do NOT allow backwards, node-dependency-style commas.
// (while this code style choice was used by the project in the past,
// we have since standardized these practices to make code easier to
// read, albeit a bit less exciting)
"laxcomma": false,
// Do NOT allow avant garde use of commas in conditional statements.
// (this prevents accidentally writing code like:
// ```
// if (!_.contains(['+ci', '-ci', '∆ci', '+ce', '-ce', '∆ce']), change.verb) {...}
// ```
// See the problem in that code? Neither did we-- that's the problem!)
"nocomma": true,
// Strictly enforce the consistent use of single quotes.
// (this is a convention that was established primarily to make it easier
// to grep [or FIND+REPLACE in Sublime] particular string literals in
// JavaScript [.js] files. Note that JSON [.json] files are, of course,
// still written exclusively using double quotes around key names and
// around string literals.)
"quotmark": "single",
// Do NOT suppress warnings about the use of `==null` comparisons.
// (please be explicit-- use Lodash or `require('util')` and call
// either `.isNull()` or `.isUndefined()`)
"eqnull": false,
// Strictly enforce the use of curly braces with `if`, `else`, and `switch`
// as well as, much less commonly, `for` and `while` statements.
// (this is just so that all of our code is consistent, and to avoid bugs)
"curly": true,
// Strictly enforce the use of `===` and `!==`.
// (this is always a good idea. Check out "Truth, Equality, and JavaScript"
// by Angus Croll [the author of "If Hemmingway Wrote JavaScript"] for more
// explanation as to why.)
"eqeqeq": true,
// Allow initializing variables to `undefined`.
// For more information, see:
// •
// •
// (it is often very helpful to explicitly clarify the initial value of
// a local variable-- especially for folks new to more advanced JavaScript
// and who might not recognize the subtle, yet critically important differences between our seemingly
// between `null` and `undefined`, and the impact on `typeof` checks)
