lintr 2.0.0

lintr 2.0.0 is a major release, and incorporates development changes since the last major release (1.0.0) in 2016-04-16.

Deprecated functions

  • Deprecated camel_case_linter(), snake_case_linter() and multiple_dots_linter()
    in favor of object_name_linter() which enforce the given style: snake_case,, lowerCamelCalse, UpperCamelCase, alllowercase or ALLUPPERCASE
    (#59, @fangly).
  • Deprecated absolute_paths_linter() in favor of the new absolute_path_linter(),
    with a lax mode for fewer false positive lints (#199, fangly).

New linters

  • New cyclocomp_linter() identifies overly complex functions (#361, @fabian-s)
  • New equals_na_linter() (#143, #326, @jabranham)

    extracting a single element from an object, not [ (subsetting) nor $
    (interactive use) (@fangly).
  • New function_left_parentheses_linter() to check that there is no space between
    a function name and its left parentheses (#204, @jrnold).
  • New implicit_integer_linter() detects round numbers not declared as integers,
    i.e. 1 instead of 1L (@fangly).
  • New nonportable_path_linter() identifies paths constructed without file.path()
  • New paren_brace_linter() checks that there is a space between right
    parenthesis and an opening curly brace (@bfgray3, #242).
  • New pipe_continuation_linter() to ensure there is a space before %>% and newline afterwards (#216).
  • New semicolon_terminator_linter() reports semicolons at the end a line (#147,
    @gaborcsardi) and between expressions (#181, @fangly).
  • New seq_linter(), finds 1:length(...) (and similar) expressions (#155, @gaborcsardi)
  • New todo_comment_linter() lints TODOs (@fangly).
  • New T_and_F_symbol_linter() warns when using T and F instead of TRUE and FALSE
  • New undesirable_operator_linter() and undesirable_function_linter() lint uses of
    user-specified functions and operators (#48, #149, @fangly).
  • New unneeded_concatenation_linter() lints uses of c() with a constant or no
    arguments (@fangly).

New functions for writing linters

New functions for users

  • New lint_dir() function to lint files under a given directory (@arekbee, #360)

  • closed_curly_linter() now allows closing parenthesis or comma after closing curly brace (#167, @Enchufa2)
  • commas_linter() now handles missing arguments calls properly (#145)
  • commented_code_linter() now relaxed, it no longer lints comments within roxygen blocks

  • object_usage_linter() has been changed to better detect lexical scoping of global variables (#27, #336, #91, #382)
  • object_usage_linter() now respects utils::globalVariables(), so it can be used to avoid false positive warnings due to non-standard evaluation (#352)
  • object_usage_linter() now ignores top level calls that contain function definitions (#26).
  • object_linter*()s now only lint objects declared in the current file
    (#76, #108, #136, #191, #194, #201, @fangly).
  • open_curly_linter() and closed_curly_linter() now do not lint double curly syntax (#388)
  • open_curly_linter() now allows comments after the curly braces (#188)
  • pipe_continuation_linter() now behaves better in nested expressions, functions etc. (#366 @russHyde)
