What eslint config do you use with react

twitter logo github logo ・1 min read

I used to use eslint-plugin-react but found more and more nonsense rules in there like https://github.com/yannickcr/eslint-plugin-react/blob/master/docs/rules/jsx-props-no-spreading.md. I only want to see an error when there's an actual bug or bad practice (like unused variables, same variable name in upper scope, forgot to close a bracket etc). No styling stuff (I have prettier for that)

      "callbacksLast": true,
      "shorthandFirst": true,
      "noSortAlphabetically": false,

This is mine, this is most styling stuff (sorry), but can also catch bugs early on
