Discussion on: Is the Airbnb ESLint config still a thing for React?

Airbnb’s config makes sense only if you are a giant company with established practices and you want to enforce them for everyone. For building things from scratch this is unnecessary waste of time to fight eslint.
I created my own config, but never had a proper chance to use it because both NextJs and Remix have their own configs. There is a trend to migrate away from forcing you to make a choice about configs and just provide you with sane defaults - Deno, Rome

Interesting, this is exactly the reversed trend as before. Sometimes it looked like everything has to be configured to the smallest detail. You are right, sometimes it felt as the meaning of life to make ESLint happy 😄
