DotNet Angular Lint intergration

To maintain coding standards for everyone, you can integrate npm lint tests so that when your dotnet project publishes, an npm lint is run

in your *.csproj file

<Target Name="PublishRunWebpack" AfterTargets="ComputeFilesToPublish">
  <Exec WorkingDirectory="$(SpaRoot)" Command="npm install" />
  <Exec WorkingDirectory="$(SpaRoot)" Command="npm run lint" /> <!----- ADD THIS LINE AFTER npm install runs -->

npm i -D eslint
touch .eslintrc.json
touch .eslintignore

in package.json

  "scripts": {
    "lint:js": "eslint -c ./.eslintrc.json"
