For the tools used for SAPUI5 content development, guidelines and recommendations have been introduced.

The following guidelines and recommendations apply:

  • To make issues with mixed tabs/spaces and windows-style linebreaks visible immediately, we recommend to configure your JavaScript editor to display whitespace and linebreak characters.

  • We also recommend to configure the code formatter of your code editor accordingly. The default formatter for JavaScript in Eclipse is already pretty ok.

  • Do not use the auto formatter to format entire files. The auto formatter handles many lines and makes it more difficult to find out who actually wrote the code.


SAPUI5 contains a mandatory ruleset for ESLint. For a complete list of rules and settings, see ESLint Code Checks. For the ESLint configuration file, see ESLint Configuration File.
