The ESLint generator for Yeoman. This generator is intended to aid development within the ESLint project. It is designed to work within the top-level eslint directory.


First and foremost, you must have Node.js and npm installed. If you don't have Node.js installed, please download and install the latest version.
  • Node.js ^18.18.0 || ^20.9.0 || >=21.1.0

You must also install Yeoman, if you don't have it installed already. To install Yeoman, you can run this command:
npm i -g yo

With Node.js and Yeoman installed, you can run this command:
npm i -g generator-eslint


The Yeoman generator currently supports the following commands:


If you want to create a new ESLint plugin, make sure you're in the top-level directory where you want the plugin to be created and type:
yo eslint:plugin

You'll be prompted for information about your plugin and it will generate a package.json file, README, and source code for a stub plugin.


If you want to create a new ESLint rule, make sure you're in the top-level directory of an ESLint repo clone or an ESLint plugin and type:
yo eslint:rule

You'll be prompted for some information and then it will generate the files necessary for a new rule, including the source file, a test file, and a documentation file.
