enforce consistent line breaks inside braces (object-curly-newline)

The --fix option on the command line can automatically fix some of the problems reported by this rule.

A number of style guides require or disallow line breaks inside of object braces and other tokens.

Rule Details

This rule enforces consistent line breaks inside braces of object literals or destructuring assignments.

Options

This rule has either a string option:

  • "always" requires line breaks inside braces
  • "never" disallows line breaks inside braces

Or an object option:

  • "multiline": true requires line breaks if there are line breaks inside properties or between properties. Otherwise, it disallows line breaks.
  • "minProperties" requires line breaks if the number of properties is at least the given integer. By default, an error will also be reported if an object contains linebreaks and has fewer properties than the given integer. However, the second behavior is disabled if the consistent option is set to true
  • "consistent": true (default) requires that either both curly braces, or neither, directly enclose newlines. Note that enabling this option will also change the behavior of the minProperties option. (See minProperties above for more information)

You can specify different options for object literals, destructuring assignments, and named imports and exports:

{
    "object-curly-newline": ["error", {
        "ObjectExpression": "always",
        "ObjectPattern": { "multiline": true },
        "ImportDeclaration": "never",
        "ExportDeclaration": { "multiline": true, "minProperties": 3 }
    }]
}
  • "ObjectExpression" configuration for object literals
  • "ObjectPattern" configuration for object patterns of destructuring assignments
  • "ImportDeclaration" configuration for named imports
  • "ExportDeclaration" configuration for named exports

Compatibility

When Not To Use It

If you don't want to enforce consistent line breaks inside braces, then it's safe to disable this rule.
