Linter library choice

Hello all,

We need to have a linter tp keep our codebase clean, consistent, and close to the best practices is


  • developed by a community
  • good editor support (at least VSCode and Jetbrain’s IDEs)
  • extensible, to be able to support additional syntax on top of the ones we already use (javascript, typescript, vue…)
