When I started this project, I wanted eslint-config-defaults to be the easiest way to get started with eslint and as a part of that I wanted to have lots of options for people. At the time the extends feature was brand new and very few people were using it and some of this config, like Google's was not available in other places. Since then, many many companies including eslint itself began publishing their own eslint-config-<name>. I think this project served it’s purpose (promoting eslint and the use of the extention feature) but now we don’t need a one stop shop. This project is no longer maintained. Updated config can be grabbed at the individual project repos.


A composable set of ESLint configurations.


Install this config package and ESLint:

$ npm install --save-dev eslint eslint-config-defaults


Full Configurations

This package includes the following complete and ready to use configurations:

  • defaults - The config recommended by ESLint
  • defaults/configurations/eslint - The config recommended by ESLint
  • defaults/configurations/google - The Google JavaScript Style Guide
  • defaults/configurations/gulp - The Gulp ESLint config
  • defaults/configurations/node-runtime - The config used for the Node.js runtime
  • defaults/configurations/off - Disable all rules (ESLint's default at 1.0.0+)
  • defaults/configurations/airbnb/es5 - Config from the AirBnB Style Guide
  • defaults/configurations/airbnb/es6-react - Config from the AirBnB Style Guide
  • defaults/configurations/airbnb/es6 - Config from the AirBnB Style Guide
  • defaults/configurations/walmart/es5-browser - Walmart ES5 + browser

  • defaults/configurations/walmart/es6-test - Walmart ES6 + test
  • defaults/configurations/walmart/es6 - Walmart ES6 config

To consume and extend a config in ESLint just add the extends attribute to your .eslintrc. For more details about how shareable configs work, see the ESLint documentation.

  - "defaults"
  - "defaults/configurations/walmart/es6-browser"

NOTE: Extending multiple complete configs can cause unexpected results, if you need to do this you should consider a piecemeal config as explained below. See #38 for details.

Piecemeal Configurations

ESLint configuration is broken apart in ./rules containing ESLint's rules and rules for specific ESLint plugins. The full set of ESLint rules (./rules/eslint) are broken into categories that mirror ESLint's documentation. Under each rule type there are sets of configuration as well as an off.js file which turns off every rule in the category.

  - "defaults/rules/eslint/best-practices/walmart",
  - "defaults/rules/eslint/errors/airbnb"

  - "defaults/rules/eslint/es6/off"
  - "defaults/rules/eslint/node/off"

  "phantom": true


Due to an issue with ESLint, config extension cannot be called from a globally installed (npm install -g eslint) eslint. It can however be run properly using eslint installed directly to your package's node_modules. This can be done by either calling it directly (./node_modules/.bin/eslint .) or from within an npm script since they automatically check local node_modules first. This will be tracked in issue #43.

This package tracks config in the following versions:
