Plugins array makes ESLint do nothing at all

See original GitHub issue

Tell us about your environment

What did you do? Please include the actual source code causing the issue, as well as the command that you used to run ESLint.

I was following a tutorial which added the code below, but this seems to break ESLint for me. ESLint does not do anything if I add this line. The tutorial I was following was on prettier@v0.22.0 and eslint@v3.18.0 so I am not sure if this is deprecated or a bug, because I’m having trouble finding it in the documentation.

"plugins": [

Paste the command you used to run ESLint:

I forgot to install eslint-plugin-prettier.

I was following a tutorial and I must have missed that step. I assumed it would work because I had already installed Prettier and I was not getting any errors for missing packages.

Thanks for the update @EddyVinck.

Curious to know what was missed, in case others might find this issue in future. Mind sharing?
