Rules in config/tslint.json file of SPFx scaffolding are being ignored.

Copper Contributor

I ran the current Yeoman SharePoint generator, and got the following ts-lint file in the config directory (with a few minor tweaks added).  From what I can tell the trailing-comma rule should be disabled (it's set to false), but it's not. I'm still getting red squigglies when I don't have a trailing comma (see below). 


That's just one example of a number of tslint scaffolding rules that appear to be ignored. 

What am I missing? Thanks! :)

(I have also posted this question in SharePoint StackExchange.)

Hi @Tracy Sterling,


Looking at the second image, I assume that you are referring to TSLint using the Visual Studio Code extension. If so. please check the blog post I have published some time ago with a simple fix for this. 

Hope it helps
