WordPress-ish JavaScript Code Standard – ESlint Config

More recently I’ve switched to ESlint. It seems to identify more issues and formatting problems than before, is easy to configure, and is also extensible.

It’s not perfect yet by any means, so make of it what you can. Hopefully it will improve with time.
