Turning off eslint rule for a specific file
Is it possible to turn off the eslint rule for the whole file? Something such as:
// eslint-disable-file no-use-before-define
(Analogous to eslint-disable-line.) It happens to me quite often, that in a certain file, I’m breaking a specific rule on many places which is considered OK for that file, but I don’t want to disable the rule for the whole project nor do I want to disable other rules for that specific file.
You can turn off/change a particular rule for a file by putting the configurations at the top of the file.
/* eslint no-use-before-define: 0 */ // --> OFF or /* eslint no-use-before-define: 2 */ // --> ON
/* eslint-disable */ at the top of the file
You can tell ESLint to ignore specific files and directories by creating an
.eslintignore file in your project’s root directory:
build/*.js config/*.js bower_components/foo/*.js
The ignore patterns behave according to the
(Don’t forget to restart your editor.)
You can also disable/enable a rule like this:
/* eslint-disable no-use-before-define */ ... code that violates rule ... /* eslint-enable no-use-before-define */
eslint-disable-line as mentioned in the question. It might be a better method if you don’t want to have to restore a complicated rule configuration when re-enabling it.
To temporarily disable rule warnings in your file, use block comments in the following format:
/* eslint-disable */
This will disable ESLint until the
/* eslint-enable */
comment is reached.

Accepted answer didn’t work for me (maybe a different version of eslint…? I’m using
eslint v3.19.0), but did find a solution with the following…
Place the following on the top of your file
/* eslint-disable no-use-before-define */
This will disable the rule for the entire file
