no-empty-label: disallow labels for anything other than loops and switches

(removed) This rule was removed in ESLint v2.0 and replaced by the no-labels rule.

Labeled statements are only used in conjunction with labeled break and continue statements. ECMAScript has no goto statement.

Rule Details

This error occurs when a label is used to mark a statement that is not an iteration or switch

Example of incorrect code for this rule:

/*eslint no-empty-label: "error"*/

labeled:
var x = 10;

Example of correct code for this rule:

/*eslint no-empty-label: "error"*/

labeled:
for (var i=10; i; i--) {
    // ...
}

When Not To Use It

If you don't want to be notified about usage of labels, then it's safe to disable this rule.
