Consistent linting and formatting in a JavaScript project can be enforced in multiple ways. Consider some or all of the methods recommended below:

  • Start using tools like ESLint and Prettier. Start by configuring ESLint with your preferred rules and plugins in your project's `.eslintrc.js` file.
  • Use a tool such as Prettier for code formatting, adjusting settings in a `.prettierrc.js` file, and integrate these tools into your workflow and CI/CD pipeline.
  • Additionally, consider using pre-commit hooks to automatically lint and format code before each commit. This ensures code consistency and adherence to project standards, enhancing code quality and collaboration.

Taking these steps collectively enforces consistent linting and formatting in your project, effectively promoting better code quality and collaboration.
