2.0.0 (2019-08-13)


  • Node 6 is no longer supported.
  • parser / typescript-estree:
    • When project is specified within parserOptions, we will now hard fail when parsing files that are not included within the provided tsconfig(s).
    • We discovered that this was a common performance pitfall, and could increase lint times by huge amounts.
    • To handle this, there are a few possible solutions:
      1. Improve the includes field within your tsconfig(s) so that all the files you want to lint are included.
      2. Create a new tsconfig.eslint.json which you pass into parserOptions.project, which includes all of the files you want to lint, e.g.:
          // extend your base config so you don't have to redefine your compilerOptions
          "extends": "./tsconfig.json",
          "include": [
            // etc
          // IF (and only if) you have a mixed JS/TS codebase - you should also turn on JS support
          "compilerOptions": {
            "allowJs": true,
            "checkJs": true
        If you are using non standard file extensions (i.e. .vue files), you should add the following config to your .eslintrc file:
          "parserOptions": {
            "extraFileExtensions": [".vue"]
  • eslint-plugin:
    • Removed hardcoded checks which prevented some rules from running on non-TypeScript files (i.e. files that are not *.ts/*.tsx).
      • Some users with mixed TS/JS codebases may now see some TypeScript-specific rules being reported against JS files.
      • Please use ESLint's "overrides" config to select which files to apply rules to.
    • Removed deprecated rule prefer-interface. This rule was replaced by consistent-type-definitions.
    • Removed deprecated rule no-triple-slash-reference. This rule was replaced by triple-slash-reference
    • Merged both no-angle-bracket-type-assertion and no-object-literal-type-assertion into one rule - consistent-type-assertions.
    • explicit-function-return-type no longer treats export default () => {} as an expression for the purposes of the allowExpressions option.
    • Changed a number of the default rule configs:
      • explicit-function-return-type - allowTypedFunctionExpressions and allowHigherOrderFunctions are now both true by default.
      • no-inferrable-types - ignoreParameters and ignoreProperties are now both false by default.
      • no-this-alias - allowDestructuring is now true by default.
    • Reworked the recommended configs:
      • plugin:@typescript-eslint/recommended
        • This is our slim, recommended set of rules. This config does not require type information, so it can be easily dropped into an existing config.
      • plugin:@typescript-eslint/recommended-requiring-type-checking
        • This is a slightly expanded set of rules, intended to be used in conjunction with plugin:@typescript-eslint/recommended. These rules specifically require type information. We separated these rules into a separate config to ease adoption and to make the base recommended "fast-by-default".
      • plugin:@typescript-eslint/eslint-recommended
        • This config is a compatibility config that disables rules from eslint:recommended which are already handled by TypeScript.
      • plugin:@typescript-eslint/all
        • This config simply turns on every single rule available in the plugin.
      • The intention is that you can use all the configs together, as they build upon one-another:
          "extends": [
