Node.js Question

Any way to force strict mode in node?

Could not find this answer anywhere, but I did find several mailing lists where this was discussed, these are rather old however and I have no idea if this is implemented or not.

Is there anyway to force using strict mode in node.js?

Writing

"use strict";
in all my .js files... well, i prefer it being forced to using strict mode, rather than adding extra boilerplate.

Answer

According to Lloyd you can now place

"use strict";

at the top of your file in node >= 0.10.7, but if you want your whole app to run in strict (including external modules) you can do this

node --use_strict
