Release Notes

In most cases no configuration is required. However, in some cases you may want to customize the following:

  • Use eslint that is not on your PATH: If eslint is not on your PATH, set the TM_JAVASCRIPT_ESLINT_ESLINT variable to point to it. Set in TextMate > Preferences… > Variables.
  • Don’t validate on save: If you don’t want to validate your JavaScript automatically when you press ⌘S:
    1. Open the Bundle Editor (Bundles > Edit Bundles…).
    2. Navigate to JavaScript ESLint > Menu Actions > Save & Validate with ESLint.
    3. In the drawer that appears, delete the “Key Equivalent” of ⌘S.
  • Use a project-specific ESLint configuration:
    • eslint automatically uses .eslintrc and package.json files found in your directory tree. See the documentation for more information.
