    .... okay.... now what?

    @Yamikuronue i blame you for introducing me to ESlint in the first place! (also please help? ;-))

    What's your config file? Some of the rules got renamed between my first setting up a config file and my revisiting it today.

    Looking at the rules, I see "space-unary-ops" is probably what you wanted there.

        "node": true
      "rules": {

        "space-after-keywords": [2, "always"],
        "space-in-brackets": [2, "never"],
        "space-unary-word-ops": 2

    ok well that makes sense... when did they change the name of that rule and what did they change it to then?

    also why? that rc file is only like a month old!

    I think you can also instruct npm to install a specific version, to avoid this headache in the future

    Looking over the list, I'm not sure "space-unary-word-ops" was EVER right? Are you sure it was working?

  • SockDev

    that did it.

    I'm not sure i want to version lock eslint, i want the bugfixes... hmm... must think.

    i do look forward to when nodeJS gets full ES6 support so i can start using all that awesome goodness.
