Overview

This cop checks for places where classes with only class methods can be replaced with a module. Classes should be used only when it makes sense to create instances out of them.

Examples:

# bad
class SomeClass
  def self.some_method
    # body omitted
  end

  def self.some_other_method
    # body omitted
  end
end

# good
module SomeModule
  module_function

  def some_method
    # body omitted
  end

  def some_other_method
    # body omitted
  end
end

# good - has instance method
class SomeClass
  def instance_method; end
  def self.class_method; end
end
