Rule Proposal: require-await

See original GitHub issue

Async functions and await expressions arrived stage 4. We can add the rule for those after our parser supported those.

This proposal is the await version of require-yield rule. It disallows async functions without await expressions.

/*eslint require-await: error*/

// ✔ GOOD
async function foo() {
    await doSomething()

async function foo() {
    // do nothing.

// ✘ BAD
async function foo() {

I don’t think there’s a clear conflict between these two rules. require-await can be resolved by adding an await at a spot other than right after return.
