Hi Justin,

Thanks for your reply. However, I have a few more doubts. I'm listing them
down here:
1. Could you please tell me about the development environment you've used
while building the current version of the project as It'll help me
understand all the files better.
2. In the .editorconfig
<https://github.com/GPII/gpii-chrome-extension/blob/master/.editorconfig> file
you have specified all the configurations for the editor, so do we have to
follow that strictly or we can change that according to our own
preferences? Please also tell me about the editor you used.
3. I'm not able to understand the contents of .eslintignore
<https://github.com/GPII/gpii-chrome-extension/blob/master/.eslintignore> file
and for what it is used?
4. I think .eslintrc.json
<https://github.com/GPII/gpii-chrome-extension/blob/master/.eslintrc.json> file
is corresponding to the configuration that we have to include when setting
up ESLint, so do we have to strictly abide by that or can we explore
additional configuration and then later add it in the .eslintrc.json
<https://github.com/GPII/gpii-chrome-extension/blob/master/.eslintrc.json>
file?
5. In the .gitignore
<https://github.com/GPII/gpii-chrome-extension/blob/master/.gitignore> file,
It's suggesting to ignore .nyc_output folder, so is this the same folder
that corresponds to the .nycrc file in the root directory?

I would be really thankful if you could find time to answer this.

Regards,
Umang Modi
