What would you like to do?
Pre-commit hook for eslint, linting *only* staged changes.
for file in $(git diff --cached --name-only | grep -E '\.(js|jsx)$')
git show ":$file" | node_modules/.bin/eslint --stdin --stdin-filename "$file" # we only want to lint the staged changes, not any un-staged changes
if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
echo "ESLint failed on staged file '$file'. Please check your code and try again. You can run ESLint manually via npm run eslint."
exit 1 # exit with failure status

Thanks. Very helpful.

Option --diff-filter=d should be specified in git diff to exclude deleted files.

@Fer0x Where would that go?

@alberth8 It'd be like this -> git diff --diff-filter=d --cached --name-only

Thanks @dahjelle! Great stuff :)

Thank you very much

eslint is quite slow when it runs against my entire project, this is much faster, thanks!!

Has anyone figured out a workflow for using the --fix flag during this pre-commit hook?

What I've come across is that when the pre-commit hook is triggered for files that are staged, the new changes aren't included in the commit.

It makes sense why it wouldn't be included: this is changing a staged file, and those changes would also have to be staged.

lint-staged has a partly-working fix for this, however, and as they note, this doesn't work for partially-staged files, AKA files whose changes have been cherry-picked for a commit.

@SalTor take a look at this. It works well for me.
