ESLint v4.15.0 released

by Kevin Partington - 6 January 2018

We just pushed ESLint v4.15.0, which is a minor release upgrade of ESLint. This release adds some new features and fixes several bugs found in the previous release.


New APIs

CLIEngine now has a getRules() method. This is useful for integrations that need to look at rules' metadata programmatically without knowing what rules might have been defined by plugins.

Rules now support messages metadata and messageId report parameters, including full support in RuleTester. This lets rule developers use messageIds in their rule tests and avoid needing to track report message changes in both the rule implementation and the corresponding test file. In addition, this is the first step towards core support for rule message localization.

New rule options

The indent rule now has an ignoreComments option. This allows users to opt out of indentation checks for comments if project style rules require that comments be indented in a different manner.
