VSCode and TSLint Setup

July 11, 2020


TSLint will hopefully be deprecated next year (2021). Till then it is the best linter option for Typescript project and VSCode should work with it properly

Example TSLint Rules

  "extends": ["tslint:recommended", "tslint-react", "tslint-config-prettier"],
  "rules": {
    "ordered-imports": true,
    "object-literal-sort-keys": true,
    "member-ordering": true,
    "no-console": true,
    "jsx-no-lambda": true

How to setup VSCode to format on save based on TSLint Rules

  1. Press CMD + , or click Code, Preferences and Settings
  2. Click the icon below vscode
  3. Add "tslint.autoFixOnSave": true to settings.json file


Your VSCode should format on save and live happily ever after with TSLint
