Class: RuboCop::Cop::Metrics::PerceivedComplexity

Inherits:
CyclomaticComplexity show all
Defined in:
lib/rubocop/cop/metrics/perceived_complexity.rb

Overview

This cop tries to produce a complexity score that's a measure of the complexity the reader experiences when looking at a method. For that reason it considers `when` nodes as something that doesn't add as much complexity as an `if` or a `&&`. Except if it's one of those special `case`/`when` constructs where there's no expression after `case`. Then the cop treats it as an `if`/`elsif`/`elsif`… and lets all the `when` nodes count. In contrast to the CyclomaticComplexity cop, this cop considers `else` nodes as adding complexity.

Examples:


def my_method                   # 1
  if cond                       # 1
    case var                    # 2 (0.8 + 4 * 0.2, rounded)
    when 1 then func_one
    when 2 then func_two
    when 3 then func_three
    when 4..10 then func_other
    end
  else                          # 1
    do_something until a && b   # 2
  end                           # ===
end                             # 7 complexity points
