Investigate style enforcement tools

See original GitHub issue

I don’t think style enforcement should be part of our linting process. It’s too annoying to see formatting messages in console and browser warnings as you write code.

Nevertheless I think it’s a good idea to enforce style automatically. For example, before pushing your changes.

We don’t want to enforce any particular style in CRA projects but I want to either document or integrate with popular automatic code formatting tools.

I don’t plan to look into this personally but I’d love somebody to help us out and investigate what’s out there in the ecosystem, and how we could use that in CRA.


  • Should offer different styles (at least semi / no-semi)
  • Fixing violations should be automatic and as easy as npm run format which could be like react-scripts format semi
  • The tool should understand all of the syntax we use (ES6, JSX, class properties, async await)

Desired outcomes:

  • We know which style enforcement tools exist and how they differ from each other
  • If there is one fitting our workflow, we have documentation on integrating it into CRA project
  • If it’s really good we might even include it into CRA

If you’d like to help, please write in this issue! I think it’s fine if several people look into this at the same time so this task is open to everyone.

This is more or less what I wanted (from @jlongster). I’d like to investigate integrating it by default.
