Setting default catches "Unexpected assignment" warning

When I try to set a default option for the performSearch function I get a console warning with no results on the page:

"warning Expected an assignment or function call and instead saw an expression no-unused-expressions"

my code looks exactly like Guils:

performSearch = (query = 'cats') => {
  //function stuff

Hi Zach,

I think it's because inside the source code you downloaded, ESLint is pre-installed https://eslint.org/docs/2.0.0/rules/no-unused-expressions And Guil didn't mention it in this cource
