computed-property-spacing

Enforce consistent spacing inside computed property brackets

πŸ›  Fixable

Some problems reported by this rule are automatically fixable by the --fix command line option

While formatting preferences are very personal, a number of style guides require or disallow spaces between computed properties in the following situations:

/*eslint-env es6*/

var obj = { prop: "value" };
var a = "prop";
var x = obj[a]; // computed property in object member expression

var a = "prop";
var obj = {
[a]: "value" // computed property key in object literal (ECMAScript 6)
};

var obj = { prop: "value" };
var a = "prop";
var { [a]: x } = obj; // computed property key in object destructuring pattern (ECMAScript 6)

Rule Details

This rule enforces consistent spacing inside computed property brackets.

It either requires or disallows spaces between the brackets and the values inside of them. This rule does not apply to brackets that are separated from the adjacent value by a newline.

Options

This rule has two options, a string option and an object option.

String option:

  • "never" (default) disallows spaces inside computed property brackets
  • "always" requires one or more spaces inside computed property brackets

Object option:

  • "enforceForClassMembers": true (default) additionally applies this rule to class members.

never

Examples of incorrect code for this rule with the default "never" option:

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "never"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

obj[foo ]
obj[ 'foo']
var x = {[ b ]: a}
obj[foo[ bar ]]

const { [ a ]: someProp } = obj;
({ [ b ]: anotherProp } = anotherObj);

Examples of correct code for this rule with the default "never" option:

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "never"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

obj[foo]
obj['foo']
var x = {[b]: a}
obj[foo[bar]]

const { [a]: someProp } = obj;
({ [b]: anotherProp } = anotherObj);

always

Examples of incorrect code for this rule with the "always" option:

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "always"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

obj[foo]
var x = {[b]: a}
obj[ foo]
obj['foo' ]
obj[foo[ bar ]]
var x = {[ b]: a}
const { [a]: someProp } = obj;
({ [b ]: anotherProp } = anotherObj);

Examples of correct code for this rule with the "always" option:

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "always"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

obj[ foo ]
obj[ 'foo' ]
var x = {[ b ]: a}
obj[ foo[ bar ] ]
const { [ a ]: someProp } = obj;
({ [ b ]: anotherProp } = anotherObj);

enforceForClassMembers

With enforceForClassMembers set to true (default), the rule also disallows/enforces spaces inside of computed keys of class methods, getters and setters.

Examples of incorrect code for this rule with "never" and { "enforceForClassMembers": true } (default):

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "never", { "enforceForClassMembers": true }]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

class Foo {
[a ]() {}
get [b ]() {}
set [b ](value) {}
}

const Bar = class {
[ a](){}
static [ b]() {}
static get [ c ]() {}
static set [ c ](value) {}
}

Examples of correct code for this rule with "never" and { "enforceForClassMembers": true } (default):

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "never", { "enforceForClassMembers": true }]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

class Foo {
[a]() {}
get [b]() {}
set [b](value) {}
}

const Bar = class {
[a](){}
static [b]() {}
static get [c]() {}
static set [c](value) {}
}

Examples of correct code for this rule with "never" and { "enforceForClassMembers": false }:

/*eslint computed-property-spacing: ["error", "never", { "enforceForClassMembers": false }]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

class Foo {
[a ]() {}
get [b ]() {}
set [b ](value) {}
}

const Bar = class {
[ a](){}
static [ b]() {}
static get [ c ]() {}
static set [ c ](value) {}
}

When Not To Use It

You can turn this rule off if you are not concerned with the consistency of computed properties.

Version

This rule was introduced in ESLint v0.23.0.
