Class: RuboCop::Cop::Style::ConstantVisibility

Inherits:

Defined in:
lib/rubocop/cop/style/constant_visibility.rb

Overview

This cop checks that constants defined in classes and modules have an explicit visibility declaration. By default, Ruby makes all class- and module constants public, which litters the public API of the class or module. Explicitly declaring a visibility makes intent more clear, and prevents outside actors from touching private state.

Examples:


# bad
class Foo
  BAR = 42
  BAZ = 43
end

# good
class Foo
  BAR = 42
  private_constant :BAR

  BAZ = 43
  public_constant :BAZ
end

IgnoreModules: false (default)

# bad
class Foo
  MyClass = Struct.new()
end

# good
class Foo
  MyClass = Struct.new()
  public_constant :MyClass
end

IgnoreModules: true

# good
class Foo
  MyClass = Struct.new()
end
