Getting that same error as @emj365
line 0, col 0, Bad option: 'ender'
there is no option 'ender' in the documentation. So I am guess it has been deprecated/removed.
removing this line from file and all is well.

BTW Thx for this gist!

Great dotfile! Changing a few tidbits, but using this as my global. I use ES6.
