React specific linting rules for ESLint

Installation

Install ESLint either locally or globally. (Note that locally, per project, is strongly preferred)

$ npm install eslint --save-dev

If you installed ESLint globally, you have to install React plugin globally too. Otherwise, install it locally.

$ npm install eslint-plugin-react --save-dev

Configuration

Use our preset to get reasonable defaults:

  "extends": [
    "eslint:recommended",
    "plugin:react/recommended"
  ]

You should also specify settings that will be shared across all the plugin rules. (More about eslint shared settings)

{
  "settings": {
    "react": {
      "createClass": "createReactClass", // Regex for Component Factory to use,
                                         // default to "createReactClass"
      "pragma": "React",  // Pragma to use, default to "React"
      "version": "detect", // React version. "detect" automatically picks the version you have installed.
                           // You can also use `16.0`, `16.3`, etc, if you want to override the detected value.
                           // default to latest and warns if missing
                           // It will default to "detect" in the future
      "flowVersion": "0.53" // Flow version
    },
    "propWrapperFunctions": [
        // The names of any function used to wrap propTypes, e.g. `forbidExtraProps`. If this isn't set, any propTypes wrapped in a function will be skipped.
        "forbidExtraProps",
        {"property": "freeze", "object": "Object"},
        {"property": "myFavoriteWrapper"}
    ],
    "linkComponents": [
      // Components used as alternatives to <a> for linking, eg. <Link to={ url } />
      "Hyperlink",
      {"name": "Link", "linkAttribute": "to"}
    ]
  }
}

If you do not use a preset you will need to specify individual rules and add extra configuration.

Add "react" to the plugins section.

{
  "plugins": [
    "react"
  ]
}

Enable JSX support.

With ESLint 2+

{
  "parserOptions": {
    "ecmaFeatures": {
      "jsx": true
    }
  }
}

Enable the rules that you would like to use.

  "rules": {
    "react/jsx-uses-react": "error",
    "react/jsx-uses-vars": "error",
  }

Shareable configurations

Recommended

This plugin exports a recommended configuration that enforces React good practices.

To enable this configuration use the extends property in your .eslintrc config file:

{
  "extends": ["eslint:recommended", "plugin:react/recommended"]
}

See ESLint documentation for more information about extending configuration files.

The rules enabled in this configuration are:

All

This plugin also exports an all configuration that includes every available rule. This pairs well with the eslint:all rule.

{
  "plugins": [
    "react"
  ],
  "extends": ["eslint:all", "plugin:react/all"]
}

Note: These configurations will import eslint-plugin-react and enable JSX in parser options.
