Rule: no-consecutive-blank-lines

Disallows one or more blank lines in a row.


Helps maintain a readable style in your codebase.

Extra blank lines take up extra space and add little to a semantic understanding of the code. It can be harder to read through files when fewer components can fit into the screen. If you find a file is so large you feel a need to split them up with extra blank lines or comments, consider splitting your file into smaller files.

Has Fixer
