ts-standard - Standard for Typescript! (https://github.com/standard/ts-standard)

    ts-standard <flags> [FILES...]
    If FILES is omitted, all JavaScript/Typescript source files (*.js, *.jsx, *.mjs, *.cjs, *.ts)
    in the current working directory are checked, recursively.
    Certain paths (node_modules/, coverage/, vendor/, *.min.js, bundle.js, and
    files/folders that begin with '.' like .git/) are automatically ignored.
    Paths in a project's root .gitignore file are also automatically ignored.
        --fix           Automatically fix problems
    -p, --project       Specify ts-config location (default: ./tsconfig.eslint.json or ./tsconfig.json)
        --version       Show current version
    -h, --help          Show usage information
Flags (advanced):
        --stdin         Read file text from stdin
        --globals       Declare global variable
        --plugins       Use custom eslint plugin
        --envs          Use custom eslint environment
        --parser        Use custom ts/js parser (default: @typescript-eslint/parser)
        --report        Use a built-in eslint reporter or custom eslint reporter (default: standard)
 --ext, --extensions    List of files extensions to lint by default (default: js,jsx,ts,tsx,mjs,cjs)

🧬 TSConfig: Linting with Type Information

By default ts-standard will search the current working director (cwd) for the following in order

  1. tsconfig.eslint.json
  2. tsconfig.json

You can also manually configure the location of the tsconfig file by either passing the path to the --project flag or adding a ts-standard configuration property to your package.json file.

  "ts-standard": {
    "project": "path/to/tsconfig.json"

Its possible to specify multiple projects using an array as in the underlying parser.

🗑 Ignoring files and folders

You can ignore files and folders by either providing specific files/globs of the files you want linted to ts-standard when running the command or you can add an ignore property to your package.json ts-standard configuration settings.

  "ts-standard": {
    "ignore": [

🎛 Package.json Options

  "ts-standard": {
    "ignore": [""],             // files/folders/globs to ignore
    "noDefaultIgnore": false,   // disable ignoring default locations (e.g. node_modules, .git, etc...)
    "globals": [""],            // global variables to define (e.g. $, jquery, etc...)
    "plugins": [""],            // Extra eslint plugins to use
    "envs": [""],               // eslint environments to use (e.g. node, browser, etc...)
    "parser": "",               // a different eslint parser to use (e.g. babel, etc...)
    "cwd": "",                  // the root working directory where the project file is located
    "eslint": "",               // path to a custom eslint linter
    "files": [""],              // files/folders/globs to include in the linting
    "project": [""],            // relative path to `tsconfig.json` file
    "fix": false,               // auto fix any lint errors found that are fixable
    "report": "",               // an eslint formatter to output the lint results as (e.g. standard, stylish, json, etc...)
    "extensions": "",           // a list of file extensions to lint by default (e.g. js,jsx,ts,tsx,mjs,cjs)

🚫 Please change X rule

This project has no control over the rules implemented, as such this project cannot change any of the rules that have been configured. If you want to discuss the rules, please visit the rules configuration repo eslint-config-standard-with-typescript.

🧙 Why

This utility was designed to be the standard equivalent for typescript. Underneath the hood, this utility uses the same standard-engine and combines that engine with the official eslint-config-standard-with-typescript ruleset.

You can also choose to just use eslint with the eslint-config-standard-with-typescript shareable config instead and achieve the same results as this project. But ts-standard saves you from having to manually install all the extra dependencies and may reduce configuration overhead.

🎉 Special Thanks

Special thanks to standard for inspiration and some shared code and to eslint-config-standard-with-typescript for creating a typescript specific standard.
