Rule: no-inferrable-types

Disallows explicit type declarations for variables or parameters initialized to a number, string, or boolean.

Rationale

Explicit types where they can be easily inferred by the compiler make code more verbose.

Notes:
TS Only Has Fixer

Config

Two arguments may be optionally provided:

  • ignore-params allows specifying an inferrable type annotation for function params. This can be useful when combining with the typedef rule.
  • ignore-properties allows specifying an inferrable type annotation for class properties.
