@stylistic/

space-infix-ops

While formatting preferences are very personal, a number of style guides require spaces around operators, such as:

js
var sum = 1 + 2;

Proponents of this rule believe that it makes code easier to read and can more easily highlight potential errors, such as:

js
var sum = i+++2;

While this is valid JavaScript syntax, it is hard to determine what the author intended.

Rule Details

This rule is aimed at ensuring there are spaces around infix operators.

Options

This rule accepts a single options argument with the following defaults:

json
"space-infix-ops": ["error", { "int32Hint": false }]

int32Hint

Set the int32Hint option to true (default is false) to allow write a|0 without space.

js
var foo = bar|0; // `foo` is forced to be signed 32 bit integer

Examples of incorrect code for this rule:

js
/*eslint @stylistic/space-infix-ops: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

a
+
b
a
+
b
a
+
b
a
?
b
:
c
const a
=
{b:1};
var {b
=
0}
=
bar;
function foo(a
=
0) { }
incorrect

Examples of correct code for this rule:

js
/*eslint @stylistic/space-infix-ops: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

a + b

a       + b

a ? b : c

const a = {b:1};

var {b = 0} = bar;

function foo(a = 0) { }
correct

When Not To Use It

You can turn this rule off if you are not concerned with the consistency of spacing around infix operators.
