Enhance padding-line-between-statements with "iife" statement type #10853

What rule do you want to change?


Does this change cause the rule to produce more or fewer warnings?

Either way, depending on configuration. Does not produce more warnings by default as it is a new option.

How will the change be implemented? (New option, new default behavior, etc.)?

New statement type option: "iife".

Please provide some example code that this change will affect:

/* eslint padding-line-between-statements: [error, [{ blankLine: "always", prev: "iife", next: "*" }]] */

// IIFE example:

(function() {

// Other block-like:

if (true) {

What does the rule currently do for this code?

Nothing (well, schema error).

Currently, it is possible to use the "block-like" statement type, but that will also cover IfStatement, WhileStatement, DoWhileStatement, ForStatement, other function declarations, etc., meaning the second example would also be enforced. It is not possible to target just IIFEs.

What will the rule do after it's changed?

Users can target IIFEs as previous or next statements in the rule.

N.B. The rule already detects IIFEs as part of "block-like", so this addition will be pretty trivial-- the new statement type's "test" would simply be to call the internal IIFE checker.

Inspired by #10843.

I'll champion this.
