Use this page to enable the JavaScript ESLint code verifier and to configure its behaviour. If you are using JavaScript Standard Style in your project, you can enable linting with it here.

To configure PyCharm code style options for JavaScript to follow the main rules Standard declares so they are applied when you type the code or reformat it, open the Code Style. JavaScript page (File | Settings | Editor | Code Style | JavaScript for Windows and Linux or PyCharm | Preferences | Editor | Code Style | JavaScript for macOS), click Set from, and then choose Predefined Style | JavaScript Standard Style. The style will replace your current scheme.

ItemDescription
Enable Select this check box to have ESLint/Standard applied to verify the code in the current project. After that the other controls in the page are enabled.
Node Interpreter In this field, specify the Node.js interpreter to use. Choose one of the configured interpreters or click browseButton.png and configure a new one as described in Configuring Node.js Interpreters.

If you have appointed one of the installations as default, the field displays the path to its executable file.

ESLint Package In this field, specify the location of the eslint or standard package.
Configuration file In this area, appoint the configuration to use.

Accordingly, either define the configuration to use (in .eslintrc, in eslintConfig of package.json, or in a custom .json configuration file) or rely on the default embedded configuration.

  • If you choose Automatic search, PyCharm looks for a .eslintrc file or tries to detect a configuration defined under eslintConfig in a package.json. PyCharm first looks for a .eslintrc or package.json in the folder with the file to be linted, then in its parent folder, and so on up to the project root. If the search fails, ESLint uses its default embedded configuration file.
  • Choose Configuration File to use a custom file and specify the file location in the Path field.
Additional Rules Directory In this field, specify the location of the files with additional code verification rules. These rules will be applied after the rules from .eslintrc or the above specified custom configuration file and accordingly will override them.
Extra ESLint Options In this field, specify additional command line options to run ESLint with using spaces as separators. See ESLint Command Line Interface Options for details.
