What's with the PHP coding style?

I’m not judging here, but whenever I see a Three.js example or implementation, what is the deal with it always being in what looks like a PHP coding style?

A space around function arguments:

position.set( 0, 0, 0 )

And often I’ll see equal signs being lined up across multiple lines of assignments:

const one           = 1
const fourteen      = 14
const seventySeven  = 77

There are maybe a handful of other things I’ll commonly come across and be like “WTF is this?” I remember coding like this in PHP like 15 years ago.

Admittedly, there’s no such thing as a correct coding style. Objectively, there’s no “right” way. Still, these definitely are not common practices for the JavaScript dev community anymore, and the popular ESLint configs (Standard and AirBnB) will throw.
