Simplify the creation an index file for your ESLint plugin

Install

$ npm install --save create-eslint-index req-all

With ESLint 3, a new rule format has been introduced. This new format makes it easier to attach metadata to each rule, which can then be used to generate recommended configurations and/or rule lists in the README automatically.
The new rule format looks like the following:
'use strict';

const create = (context) => {
  // ...
};

module.exports = {
  create,
  meta: {
    docs: {
      recommended: 'error',
      description: 'Description'
    }
  }
};

Usage

Creating a recommended configuration automatically

const createIndex = require('create-eslint-index');
const reqAll = require('req-all');

const rules = reqAll('rules', {camelize: false}); // Loads all rules from the `rules` folder and puts them in an object.

const recommendedRules = createIndex.createConfig({
  plugin: '<name>', // Your plugin name, without the `eslint-plugin-` prefix
  field: 'meta.docs.recommended'
}, rules);

module.exports = {
  rules,
  configs: {
    recommended: {
      rules: recommendedRules
    }
  }
};

Creating a script that injects a summary of the rules in the README

$ npm install --save-dev inject-in-tag

package.json:
{
  "scripts": {
    "update-md": "inject-in-tag ./rule-description.js README.md"
  }
}

README.md:
### Rules

<!-- RULES:START these comments are invisible to the reader -->
<!-- RULES:END -->

rule-description.js:
const reqAll = require('req-all');
const createIndex = require('create-eslint-index');
const index = require('./');

const rules = reqAll('rules', {camelize: false});

const settings = {
  descriptionField: 'meta.docs.description',
  docPath: 'docs/rules'
};

module.exports = {
  RULES: `\n${createIndex.createRulesDescription(settings, rules)}\n`
};

Result in the README:
### Rules

<!-- RULES:START these comments are invisible to the reader -->
- [rule-1](docs/rules/rule-1.md) - This is rule 1
- [rule-2](docs/rules/rule-2.md) - This is rule 2
<!-- RULES:END -->

API

createIndex.createConfig(settings, rules)

Creates a recommended setting object

settings (object)

  • settings.plugin (string): Name of your plugin, without the "eslint-plugin-" prefix. If your plugin name is "eslint-plugin-foo", this should then evaluate to "foo".
  • settings.path (string): Path to get to the recommended value of a rule.

rules (object)

Object containing each rule, where the key is the name of the rule and the value is the exported content of the file rule.

Example

See the example above for a more practical illustration.
const rules = [
  'rule-1': {
    create() {},
    meta: {
      docs: {
        recommended: 'error',
        description: 'This is rule 1'
      }
    }
  },
  'rule-2': {
    create() {},
    meta: {
      docs: {
        recommended: ['error', 'option'],
        description: 'This is rule 2'
      }
    }
  },
];

createIndex.createConfig({
  plugin: 'foo',
  path: 'meta.docs.recommended'
}, rules);
/* =>
{
  'foo/rule-1': 'error',
  'foo/rule-2': ['error', 'option']
}
*/

createIndex.createRulesDescription(settings, rules)

Creates a list of rules and their description, as one big string.

settings (object)

  • settings.docPath (string): Relative path to the documentation folder containing Markdown files matching your rules.
  • settings.descriptionField (string): Path to get to the description value of a rule.

rules (object)

Object containing each rule, where the key is the name of the rule and the value is the exported content of the file rule.

Example

Let's assume rules is declared as in the previous example.
const rules = reqAll('rules', {camelize: false});

const settings = {
  descriptionField: 'meta.docs.description',
  docPath: 'docs/rules'
};

console.log(createIndex.createRulesDescription(settings, rules));
/* =>
- [rule-1](docs/rules/rule-1.md) - This is rule 1
- [rule-2](docs/rules/rule-2.md) - This is rule 2
*/
