Reports if a resolved path is imported more than once. +(fixable) The --fix option on the [command line] automatically fixes some problems reported by this rule.

ESLint core has a similar rule (no-duplicate-imports), but this version is different in two key ways:

  1. the paths in the source code don't have to exactly match, they just have to point to the same module on the filesystem. (i.e. ./foo and ./foo.js)
  2. this version distinguishes Flow type imports from standard imports. (#334)

Rule Details


import SomeDefaultClass, * as names from './mod'
// Flow `type` import from same module is fine
import type SomeType from './mod'

...whereas here, both ./mod imports will be reported:

import SomeDefaultClass from './mod'

// oops, some other import separated these lines
import foo from './some-other-mod'

import * as names from './mod'

// will catch this too, assuming it is the same target module
import { something } from './mod.js'

The motivation is that this is likely a result of two developers importing different names from the same module at different times (and potentially largely different locations in the file.) This rule brings both (or n-many) to attention.

When Not To Use It

If the core ESLint version is good enough (i.e. you're not using Flow and you are using import/extensions), keep it and don't use this.

If you like to split up imports across lines or may need to import a default and a namespace, you may not want to enable this rule.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
