Coding Style

My preferred coding styles, for spinning up new projects:


Use Standard, which is built on top of RuboCop.

See this post for a good Standard+Rubocop project config, so you can just use Rubocop tooling in your editor.

See also this post, safe-auto-correct is now a default!

A full (manual) configuration set for rails+rspec, noteworthy for the Layout/ClassStructure setting.


Use Standard JS, which is built on top of eslint.

Git notes:

Create a .git-blame-ignore-revs file with one commit hash per line (comments with #) to get [Github to ignore those commits] when doing git blame and related analysis. Run git config blame.ignoreRevsFile .git-blame-ignore-revs to get your local git to do likewise.

Now whenever you do a few automated cleanups (one type per commit yeah?) just add that commit hash to the file, and enjoy the lack of noise in your git history.
