go-mnd - Magic number detector for Golang

A vet analyzer to detect magic numbers.

What is a magic number?
A magic number is a numeric literal that is not defined as a constant, but which may change, and therefore can be hard to update. It's considered a bad programming practice to use numbers directly in any source code without an explanation. It makes programs harder to read, understand, and maintain.

This analyzer requires Golang in version >= 1.12 because it's depends on the go/analysis API.

Options

The -checks option let's you define a comma separated list of checks.

The -ignored-numbers option let's you define a comma separated list of numbers to ignore.
For example: -ignored-numbers=1000,10_000,3.14159264

The -ignored-functions option let's you define a comma separated list of function name regexp patterns to exclude.
For example: -ignored-functions=math.*,http.StatusText,make

The -ignored-files option let's you define a comma separated list of filename regexp patterns to exclude.
For example: -ignored-files=magic_.*.go,.*_numbers.go

Checks

By default this detector analyses arguments, assigns, cases, conditions, operations and return statements.

  • argument
t := http.StatusText(200)
  • assign
c := &http.Client{
    Timeout: 5 * time.Second,
}
  • case
switch x {
    case 3:
}
  • condition
if x > 7 {
}
  • operation
var x, y int
y = 10 * x
  • return
return 3

Excludes

By default the numbers 0 and 1 as well as test files are excluded!

Further known excludes

The function "Date" in the "Time" package.

t := time.Date(2017, time.September, 26, 12, 13, 14, 0, time.UTC)

Additional custom excludes can be defined via option flag.
