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

Overview

This cop checks for consistent usage of the `DateTime` class over the `Time` class. This cop is disabled by default since these classes, although highly overlapping, have particularities that make them not replaceable in certain situations when dealing with multiple timezones and/or DST.

Examples:


# bad - uses `DateTime` for current time
DateTime.now

# good - uses `Time` for current time
Time.now

# bad - uses `DateTime` for modern date
DateTime.iso8601('2016-06-29')

# good - uses `Time` for modern date
Time.iso8601('2016-06-29')

# good - uses `DateTime` with start argument for historical date
DateTime.iso8601('1751-04-23', Date::ENGLAND)

AllowCoercion: false (default)


# bad - coerces to `DateTime`
something.to_datetime

# good - coerces to `Time`
something.to_time

AllowCoercion: true


# good
something.to_datetime

# good
something.to_time
