Defined in:

Overview

This cop checks for non-nil checks, which are usually redundant.

With `IncludeSemanticChanges` set to `false` by default, this cop does not report offenses for `!x.nil?` and does no changes that might change behavior.

With `IncludeSemanticChanges` set to `true`, this cop reports offenses for `!x.nil?` and autocorrects that and `x != nil` to solely `x`, which is usually OK, but might change behavior.

Examples:

# bad
if x != nil
end

# good
if x
end

# Non-nil checks are allowed if they are the final nodes of predicate.
# good
def signed_in?
  !current_user.nil?
end

IncludeSemanticChanges: false (default)

# good
if !x.nil?
end

IncludeSemanticChanges: true

# bad
if !x.nil?
end
