Overview

Checks for missing top-level documentation of classes and modules. Classes with no body are exempt from the check and so are namespace modules - modules that have nothing in their bodies except classes, other modules, constant definitions or constant visibility declarations.

The documentation requirement is annulled if the class or module has a ‘#:nodoc:` comment next to it. Likewise, `#:nodoc: all` does the same for all its children.

Examples:

# bad
class Person
  # ...
end

module Math
end

# good
# Description/Explanation of Person class
class Person
  # ...
end

# allowed
# Class without body
class Person
end

# Namespace - A namespace can be a class or a module
# Containing a class
module Namespace
  # Description/Explanation of Person class
  class Person
    # ...
  end
end

# Containing constant visibility declaration
module Namespace
  class Private
  end

  private_constant :Private
end

# Containing constant definition
module Namespace
  Public = Class.new
end

# Macro calls
module Namespace
  extend Foo
end

AllowedConstants: [‘ClassMethods’]


# good
module A
  module ClassMethods
    # ...
  end
end
