Standard customised to keep me sane.

This is a fork of Standard with two changes:

  • 4 Space Soft Tabs for indentions
  • Semicolons always

It is called sane-standard, because I hope that it brings you sanity the same as it does for me!

If the information you are looking for is not in this readme, you should take a look at the Standard readme, it might have what you are looking for.


$ npm install js-sane-standard


The easiest way to use JavaScript Sane Standard Style to check your code is to install it globally as a Node command line program. To do so, simply run the following command in your terminal (flag -g installs js-sane-standard globally on your system, omit it if you want to install in the current working directory):

$ npm install js-sane-standard -g

After you've done that you should be able to use the sane-standard program. The simplest use case would be checking the style of all JavaScript files in the current working directory:

$ sane-standard
Error: Use JavaScript sane-standard Style
  lib/torrent.js:950:11: Expected '===' and instead saw '=='.

You can optionally pass in a directory (or directories) using the glob pattern. Be sure to quote paths containing glob patterns so that they are expanded by standard instead of your shell:

$ sane-standard "src/util/**/*.js" "test/**/*.js"

Many people like to add happiness to their testing setup. To do this, save the packge as a dev dependency and add happiness to your package.json's test script:

$ npm install --save-dev sane-standard
  "scripts": {
    "test": "sane-standard && mocha # <- or whatever test runner you use"

Note: by default sane-standard will look for all files matching the patterns: **/*.js, **/*.jsx.


Use this in one of your projects? Include one of these badges in your readme to let people know that your code is using the standard style.
