ES lint for Typescript in VS Code

Install following extensions:

Remove everything from TS lint in the node_modules and extensions you may have.

In your typescript project run following commands in the terminal:

npm i eslint --save-dev
npm i eslint-config-prettier
npm i @typescript-eslint/eslint-plugin --save-dev
npm i @typescript-eslint/parser" --save-dev
npx eslint --init                         (choose json as the file extension)

A new file named eslintrc.json is made.
Overwrite it and adjust itto your needs:

Some settings to adjust:

  • – Search for editor.defaultFormatter and choose esbenp.pretter-vscode
  • – Search for eslint.workingDirectories, in the settings.json file set it to “eslint.workingDirectories”: [{ “mode”: “auto” }]

Fix some weird VS code issue:

  • Open a .ts file
  • Open the command pallet (View > Command pallet)
  • Take Format document with…
  • Take the last option: Configure default formatter
  • Take Prettier

Fixing stuff:

Open the settings.json file located in the .vscode folder and add following code

  "editor.codeActionsOnSave": {
    "source.fixAll": true,
    "source.organizeImports": true,

Right click in a .ts file
