Command Line Interface


To run ESLint on Node.js, you must have npm installed. If npm is not installed, follow the instructions here:

为了在 Node.js 上运行 ESLint,你必须先安装 npm。如果还没有安装 npm ,按照这里的说明进行安装:

Once npm is installed, run the following

一旦安装了 npm,运行下面的命令

npm i -g eslint

This installs the ESLint CLI from the npm repository. To run ESLint, use the following format:

这句命令从 npm 仓库安装了 ESLint CLI。使用以下格式运行 ESLint:

eslint [options] [file|dir|glob]*

Such as:


eslint file1.js file2.js



eslint lib/**

Please note that when passing a glob as a parameter, it will be expanded by your shell. The results of the expansion can vary depending on your shell, and its configuration. If you want to use node glob syntax, you have to quote your parameter (using double quotes if you need it to run in Windows), as follows:

请注意,传递一个 glob 模式作为参数时,它将由你的 shell 进行扩展。扩展的结果取决于你的 shell 及其配置。如果你想使用 node 的 glob 语法,你需要给参数加上引号(在 windows 系统运行时,如果你需要,也可以使用双引号 ),像下面这样:

eslint "lib/**"


The command line utility has several options. You can view the options by running eslint -h.

命令行工具有几个选项,你可以通过运行 eslint -h 查看所有选项。

eslint [options] file.js [file.js] [dir]

  --print-config path::String  Print the configuration for the given file

Options that accept array values can be specified by repeating the option or with a comma-delimited list (other than --ignore-pattern which does not allow the second style).

这些选项可以通过重复该选项或使用逗号分隔的列表进行指定(除了 --ignore-pattern 不允许第二种风格)。



eslint --ext .jsx --ext .js file.js

eslint --ext .jsx,.js file.js

Basic configuration

-c, --config

This option allows you to specify an additional configuration file for ESLint (see Configuring ESLint for more).

该选项允许你为 ESLint (查看 Configuring ESLint 了解更多)指定一个额外的配置文件。



eslint -c ~/my-eslint.json file.js

This example uses the configuration file at ~/my-eslint.json.

这个例子使用了 ~/my-eslint.json 作为配置文件。

It also accepts a module ID of a sharable config.

它还接受 sharable config 的一个模块的 ID。



eslint -c myconfig file.js

This example directly uses the sharable config eslint-config-myconfig.

这个例子直接使用可共享的配置 eslint-config-myconfig


Disables use of configuration from .eslintrc and package.json files.

禁用 .eslintrcpackage.json 文件中的配置。



eslint --no-eslintrc file.js


This option enables specific environments. Details about the global variables defined by each environment are available on the configuration documentation. This option only enables environments; it does not disable environments set in other configuration files. To specify multiple environments, separate them using commas, or use the option multiple times.

这个选项用来指定环境。关于每种环境中定义的全局变量的详细信息请查看 configuration 文档。该选项只能启用环境,不能禁用在其它配置文件中设置的环境。要指定多个环境的话,使用逗号分隔它们,或多次使用这个选项。



eslint --env browser,node file.js
eslint --env browser --env node file.js


This option allows you to specify which file extensions ESLint will use when searching for JavaScript files in the directories you specify. By default, it uses .js as the only file extension.

这个选项允许你指定 ESLint 在指定的目录下查找 JavaScript 文件时要使用的文件扩展名。默认情况下,它使用 .js 作为唯一性文件扩展名。



# Use only .js2 extension
eslint . --ext .js2

# Use both .js and .js2
eslint . --ext .js --ext .js2

# Also use both .js and .js2
eslint . --ext .js,.js2

Note: If you use a glob pattern, then --ext is ignored

注意:如果你使用了 glob 模式,则 --ext 被忽略

For example, eslint lib/* --ext .js will match all files within the lib/ directory, regardless of extension.

例如,eslint lib/* --ext .js 将匹配 lib/ 下的所有文件,忽略扩展名。


This option defines global variables so that they will not be flagged as undefined by the no-undef rule. Any specified global variables are assumed to be read-only by default, but appending :true to a variable’s name ensures that no-undef will also allow writes. To specify multiple global variables, separate them using commas, or use the option multiple times.

这个选项定义了全局变量,这样它们就不会被 no-undef 规则标记为未定义了。任何指定的全局变量默认是只读的,在变量名字后加上 :true 后会使它变为可写。要指定多个变量,使用逗号分隔它们,或多次使用这个选项。



eslint --global require,exports:true file.js
eslint --global require --global exports:true


This option allows you to specify a parser to be used by ESLint. By default, espree will be used.

该选项允许你为 ESLint 指定一个解析器。默认情况下,使用 espree


This option allows you to specify parser options to be used by eslint. Note that the available parser options are determined by the parser being used.

该选项允许你指定 ESLint 要使用的解析器选项。注意,可用的解析器选项取决于你所选用的解析器。



echo '3 ** 4' | eslint --stdin --parser-options=ecmaVersion:6 # will fail with a parsing error
echo '3 ** 4' | eslint --stdin --parser-options=ecmaVersion:7 # succeeds, yay!



Store the info about processed files in order to only operate on the changed ones. The cache is stored in .eslintcache by default. Enabling this option can dramatically improve ESLint’s running time by ensuring that only changed files are linted.

存储处理过的文件的信息以便只对有改变的文件进行操作。缓存默认被存储在 .eslintcache。启用这个选项可以显著改善 ESLint 的运行时间,确保只对有改变的文件进行检测。

Note: If you run ESLint with --cache and then run ESLint without --cache, the .eslintcache file will be deleted. This is necessary because the results of the lint might change and make .eslintcache invalid. If you want to control when the cache file is deleted, then use --cache-location to specify an alternate location for the cache file.

注意:如果你运行 ESLint --cache,然后又运行 ESLint 不带 --cache.eslintcache 文件将被删除。这是必要的,因为检测的结果可能会改变,使 .eslintcache 无效。如果你想控制缓存文件何时被删除,那么使用 --cache-location 来指定一个缓存文件的位置。


Path to the cache file. If none specified .eslintcache will be used. The file will be created in the directory where the eslint command is executed. Deprecated: Use --cache-location instead.

缓存文件的路径。如果没有指定,则使用 .eslintcache。这个文件会在 eslint 命令行被执行的文件目录中被创建。 已弃用: 请使用 --cache-location


Path to the cache location. Can be a file or a directory. If no location is specified, .eslintcache will be used. In that case, the file will be created in the directory where the eslint command is executed.

缓存文件的路径。可以是一个文件或者一个目录。如果没有指定,则使用 .eslintcache 。这个文件会在 eslint 命令行被执行的文件目录中被创建。

If a directory is specified, a cache file will be created inside the specified folder. The name of the file will be based on the hash of the current working directory (CWD). e.g.: .cache_hashOfCWD

如果指定一个目录,缓存文件将在指定的文件夹下被创建。文件名将基于当前工作目录(CWD) 的 hash 值,比如:.cache_hashOfCWD

Important note: If the directory for the cache does not exist make sure you add a trailing / on *nix systems or \ in windows. Otherwise the path will be assumed to be a file.

重要提示:如果不存在缓存文件的目录,请确保在尾部添加 /(*nix 系统)或 \(windows 系统)。否则该路径将被假定为是一个文件。



eslint "src/**/*.js" --cache --cache-location "/Users/user/.eslintcache/"

Specifying rules and plugins


This option allows you to specify another directory from which to load rules files. This allows you to dynamically load new rules at run time. This is useful when you have custom rules that aren’t suitable for being bundled with ESLint.

这个选项允许你指定另一个加载规则文件的目录。这允许你在运行时动态加载新规则。当你有自定义规则,而且这些规则不适合绑定到 ESLint 时,这会很有用。



eslint --rulesdir my-rules/ file.js

The rules in your custom rules directory must follow the same format as bundled rules to work properly. You can also specify multiple locations for custom rules by including multiple --rulesdir options:

为了使你自定义的规则目录下的规则正常工作,必须遵照同绑定的规则一样的格式。你也可以通过包含多个 --rulesdir 选项来为自定义规则指定多个位置。

eslint --rulesdir my-rules/ --rulesdir my-other-rules/ file.js

Note that, as with core rules and plugin rules, you still need to enable the rules in configuration or via the --rule CLI option in order to actually run those rules during linting. Specifying a rules directory with --rulesdir does not automatically enable the rules within that directory.

注意,与核心规则和插件规则一样,你仍需要在配置文件或通过 --rule 命令行选项启用这些规则,以便在检测过程中实际运行这些规则。使用 --rulesdir 指定一个规则目录不会自动启用那些目录下的规则。


This option specifies a plugin to load. You can omit the prefix eslint-plugin- from the plugin name. Before using the plugin, you have to install it using npm.

这个选项指定一个要加载的插件。你可以省略插件名的前缀 eslint-plugin-。在你使用插件直接,你必须使用 npm 安装它。



eslint --plugin jquery file.js
eslint --plugin eslint-plugin-mocha file.js


This option specifies rules to be used. These rules will be merged with any rules specified with configuration files. (You can use --no-eslintrc to change that behavior.) To define multiple rules, separate them using commas, or use the option multiple times. The levn format is used for specifying the rules.

这个选项指定要使用的规则。这些规则将会与配制文件中指定的规则合并。(你可以使用 --no-eslintrc 改变这种行为。)要定义多个规则,使用逗号分隔它们,或多次使用这个选项。levn 格式被用来指定规则。

If the rule is defined within a plugin, you have to prefix the rule ID with the plugin name and a /.

如果这个规则定义在插件内,你必须在规则 ID 前使用插件名和 /,即 插件名/规则ID



eslint --rule 'quotes: [2, double]'
eslint --rule 'guard-for-in: 2' --rule 'brace-style: [2, 1tbs]'
eslint --rule 'jquery/dollar-sign: 2'

Ignoring files


This option allows you to specify the file to use as your .eslintignore. By default, ESLint looks in the current working directory for .eslintignore. You can override this behavior by providing a path to a different file.

这个选项允许你指定一个文件作为 .eslintignore。默认情况下,ESLint 在当前工作目录下查找 .eslintignore。你可以通过提供另一个文件的路径改变这种行为。



eslint --ignore-path tmp/.eslintignore file.js
eslint --ignore-path .gitignore file.js


Disables excluding of files from .eslintignore, --ignore-path and --ignore-pattern.

禁止排除 .eslintignore--ignore-path--ignore-pattern 文件中指定的文件。



eslint --no-ignore file.js


This option allows you to specify patterns of files to ignore (in addition to those in .eslintignore). You can repeat the option to provide multiple patterns. The supported syntax is the same as in the .eslintignore file. You should quote your patterns in order to avoid shell interpretation of glob patterns.

该选项允许你指定要忽略的文件模式(除了那些在 .eslintignore 的)。你可以重复该选项已提供多个模式。语法同 .eslintignore 文件中的相同。你应该将你的模式用引号括起来,以避免命令行解析器的解析。


eslint --ignore-pattern '/lib/' --ignore-pattern '/src/vendor/*' .

Using stdin


This option tells ESLint to read and lint source code from STDIN instead of from files. You can use this to pipe code to ESLint.

这个选项告诉 ESLint 从 STDIN 而不是从文件中读取和检测源码。你可以使用该选项向 ESLint 来输入代码。



cat myfile.js | eslint --stdin


This option allows you to specify a filename to process STDIN as. This is useful when processing files from STDIN and you have rules which depend on the filename.

这个选项允许你指定一个文件名去处理 STDIN。当你处理从 STDIN 来的文件和有规则依赖于这个文件名时,这会很有用。



cat myfile.js | eslint --stdin --stdin-filename=myfile.js

Handling warnings


This option allows you to disable reporting on warnings. If you enable this option, only errors are reported by ESLint.

这个选项允许你禁止报告警告。如果开启这个选项,ESLint 只会报告错误。



eslint --quiet file.js


This option allows you to specify a warning threshold, which can be used to force ESLint to exit with an error status if there are too many warning-level rule violations in your project.

这个选项允许你指定一个警告的阈值,当你的项目中有太多违反规则的警告时,这个阈值被用来强制 ESLint 以错误状态退出。

Normally, if ESLint runs and finds no errors (only warnings), it will exit with a success exit status. However, if --max-warnings is specified and the total warning count is greater than the specified threshold, ESLint will exit with an error status. Specifying a threshold of -1 or omitting this option will prevent this behavior.

通常情况下,如果 ESLint 运行过程中,没有出现错误(只有警告),它将以成功的状态退出。然而,如果指定了 --max-warnings,而且警告的总数超过了指定的阈值,ESLint 将以错误的状态退出。通过指定一个 -1 的阈值或省略这个选项将会避免这种行为。



eslint --max-warnings 10 file.js


-o, --output-file

Enable report to be written to a file.




eslint -o ./test/test.html

When specified, the given format is output into the provided file name.


-f, --format

This option specifies the output format for the console. Possible formats are:




eslint -f compact file.js

You can also use a custom formatter from the command line by specifying a path to the custom formatter file.




eslint -f ./customformat.js file.js

When specified, the given format is output to the console. If you’d like to save that output into a file, you can do so on the command line like so:


eslint -f compact file.js > results.txt

This saves the output into the results.txt file.

这会将输出保存到 results.txt 文件。

--color, --no-color

This option forces the enabling/disabling of colorized output. You can use this to override the default behavior, which is to enable colorized output unless no TTY is detected, such as when when piping eslint through cat or less.




eslint --color file.js | cat
eslint --no-color file.js



This option will start config initialization wizard. It’s designed to help new users quickly create .eslintrc file by answering a few questions, choosing a popular style guide, or inspecting your source files and attempting to automatically generate a suitable configuration.

This option will start config initialization wizard. It’s designed to help new users quickly create .eslintrc file by answering a few questions. File will be created in current directory.

这个选项将会配置初始化向导。它被用来帮助新用户快速地创建 .eslintrc 文件,用户通过回答一些问题,选择一个流行的风格指南,或检查你的源文件,自动生成一个合适的配置。

The resulting configuration file will be created in the current directory.



This option instructs ESLint to try to fix as many issues as possible. The fixes are made to the actual files themselves and only the remaining unfixed issues are output. Not all problems are fixable using this option, and the option does not work in these situations:

该选项指示 ESLint 试图修复尽可能多的问题。修复只针对实际文件本身,而且剩下的未修复的问题才会输出。不是所有的问题都能使用这个选项进行修复,该选项在以下情形中不起作用:

  1. This option throws an error when code is piped to ESLint.
  2. 当代码传递给 ESLint 时,这个选项抛出一个错误。
  3. This option has no effect on code that uses processors.
  4. 这个选项对使用处理器的代码不起作用。


This option outputs debugging information to the console. This information is useful when you’re seeing a problem and having a hard time pinpointing it. The ESLint team may ask for this debugging information to help solve bugs.

这个选项将调试信息输出到控制台。当你看到一个问题并且很难定位它时,这些调试信息会很有用。ESLint 团队可能会通过询问这些调试信息帮助你解决 bug。

-h, --help

This option outputs the help menu, displaying all of the available options. All other options are ignored when this is present.


-v, --version

This option outputs the current ESLint version onto the console. All other options are ignored when this is present.

这个选项在控制台输出当前 ESlint 的版本。当有这个标记时,忽略其他所有标记。



eslint -v


This option prevents inline comments like /*eslint-disable*/ or /*global foo*/ from having any effect. This allows you to set an ESLint config without files modifying it. All inline config comments are ignored, e.g.:

这个选项会阻止像 /*eslint-disable*/ 或者 /*global foo*/ 这样的内联注释起作用。这允许你在不修改文件的情况下设置一个 ESLint 配置。所有的内联注释都会被忽略,比如:



eslint --no-inline-config file.js

This option outputs the configuration to be used for the file passed. When present, no linting is performed and only config-related options are valid.




eslint --print-config file.js

Ignoring files from linting

ESLint supports .eslintignore files to exclude files from the linting process when ESLint operates on a directory. Files given as individual CLI arguments will be exempt from exclusion. The .eslintignore file is a plain text file containing one pattern per line. It can be located in any of the target directory’s ancestors; it will affect files in its containing directory as well as all sub-directories. Here’s a simple example of a .eslintignore file:

当 ESLint 作用于一个目录时,ESLint 支持使用 .eslintignore 文件来避免检测处理。通过特定的命令行参数指定的文件就可以免除被忽略。.eslintignore 文件是个纯文本文件,每一行都包含一种模式。它可以放在目标目录的任何父级目录;它将影响到它所在的当前目录和所有子目录。这里是 .eslintignore 文件的一个简单示例:


A more detailed breakdown of supported patterns and directories ESLint ignores by default can be found in Configuring ESLint.

ESLint 默认忽略的模式分解和目录的更多详细信息可以在 Configuring ESLint 中找到。
