How to Use Eslint With Webpack And ES6 Modules

Today we are going to talk about eslint and webpack. This is not going to teach you how to install eslint in your project, I will assume that you already did.

First of all, when you are new to eslint and want to auto-fix your JavaScript files, so you run

npx eslint --fix .

but, you have this main.js that webpack kindly generated for you to make your code separated by modules, work.

So, you get this result:

Even though the code still working, you are not going to pass eslint rules. We don’t need to check this file with eslint, so what do we do?

We need to create a file in the root directory called .eslintignore

As you can see, the only line of code that you need to write is dist/main.js

And that’s it, next time you use

npx eslint .

or

npx eslint --fix .

eslint will ignore this file.

Happy Coding!
