Configuration rules should be more conspicuous in the documentation #3074

Judging from my own usage since I switched to ESLint and subsequent behavior when looking up rule documentation, I think finding which rule one needs is the less troublesome part of the process, but what I tend to forget the most is what is the configuration ID. Incidentally, IMO this bit is probably the less conspicuous thing in all of the documentation.

This is a kind suggestion, please consider adding a direct link in the README to the following part in the docs:

Configuring Rules

  • 0 - turn the rule off
  • 1 - turn the rule on as a warning (doesn't affect exit code)
  • 2 - turn the rule on as an error (exit code will be 1)
