A list of search and replace unix commands to help make a node repository 'standard' compliant

The standard code style linter is a great tool by Feross - check it out!

Remove trailing semicolons:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/;$//' {} \;

Ensure space between function and opening bracket:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/function(/function (/g' {} \;

Ensure space after colons in object literal:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -E -e 's/:([^ ])/: \1/g' {} \;

Ensure space after commas in object literal:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -E -e 's/,([^ ])/, \1/g' {} \;

Use single quotes when defining strings:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -E -e "s/\"/'/g" {} \;

Note that this is by no means foolproof as it will also convert the double quotes inside the string 'foo"bar'!

Remove space in front of commas:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/ *,/,/g' {} \;

Ensure one a single space around equal signs:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/  *=  */ = /g' {} \;

Remove space in front of colons:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/ *:/:/g' {} \;

Remove trailing line space:

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -type f -name '*.js' -exec sed -i '' -e 's/ *$//' {} \;

It is to be used in conjunction with them I believe.

If you check the standard-format git history, you will find a similar set of regexs at the very beginning :)

Standard 8 includes a --fix argument that is powered by eslint 🌟
