Top 3. Airbnb JavaScript Style Guide - 142k ⭐️

Another repo related to books 📚

This time it's a very famous book - known as the bedside book of programmers. The book is called "Clean Code" 🧹

However, I think the Top 3 (Airbnb JavaScript Style Guide) is outdated; it only covers up to ES5, and JavaScript has evolved TOO much since ES6.

From my point of view, everything else is spectacular. Thanks!

Thank you for your comment. In that repo, there is a separate section for ES6+, you can read the README file in section "28. ECMAScript 6+ (ES 2015+) Styles"
Hope this help!

Oops! I really do not know. I just wanna share my knowledge. And maybe it's useful to many people, so it should be of interest to them 😄

"Clean Code" - not that anyone bothers to write anything amounting to such. Especially in pressurized agile environments
