re: Just My Type: Rolling a fresh TypeScript project with Jest, ESLint and Prettier in 2019 VIEW POST


Thanks Martin, nicely put together. Do you happen to know how to deal with errors from eslint when linting files in folders beginning/ending with double underscores? like __ mocks __ (spaces added to avoid markdown formatting) ? I see errors like these and can't see a way around it:

ESLint: 6.1.0.

No files matching the pattern "./src/mocks" were found.
Please check for typing mistakes in the pattern.


Im not martin but maybe your shell treats it like special characters. Try escape those.


Ah ha - changing from

"lint": "eslint --fix ./src/*"


"lint": "eslint --fix './src/*/'"

sorted it. Cheers

(I use zsh)

Hey Ross! Really sorry I missed your comment but glad you got it sorted out - I think escaping it is definitely the way to go, apologies for missing that out in my post.

I will update accordingly, I massively appreciate you letting me know!
