Available development commands

In the project directory, you can run the following commands. There are a few commands not mentioned here (see package.json) but those are only used by internal processes.

yarn eslint

This runs ESLint to discover problems within our codebase without executing it. ESLint also enforces some patterns and practices.

yarn lint

This runs all the lint commands at once.

yarn prettier

This runs Prettier to automatically format the entire codebase.

yarn prettier-dev

This runs Prettier on only your changed files. This is intended for development.

yarn test

This launches Jest in the interactive watch mode.


We use Prettier to automatically format our JavaScript code and stop all the on-going debates over styles. As a developer, you have to run it (with yarn prettier-dev) before submitting a Pull Request.
