Rule: no-any

Disallows usages of any as a type declaration.


Using any as a type declaration nullifies the compile-time benefits of the type system.

If you’re dealing with data of unknown or “any” types, you shouldn’t be accessing members of it. Either add type annotations for properties that may exist or change the data type to the empty object type {}.

Alternately, if you’re creating storage or handling for consistent but unknown types, such as in data structures or serialization, use <T> template types for generic type handling.

Also see the no-unsafe-any rule.
