  • RuboCoping with legacy: Bring your Ruby code up to Standard

    1) Auto-correcting a whole (large) codebase at once with tons of offenses and dozens of active branches should be used with caution. Merge conflicts, blame pollution (ok, can be solved with .git-blame-ignore-revs, though can hardly remember any project using it). Though, the most important argument is that auto-correct can introduce bugs. Unfortunately, even safe autocorrect can be unsafe.

    I just would like to point out that even though that is the most sane way, it comes with it owns set of problems. One of them is when developers start to code to cheat the linter, or they complicate the code just to "make the linter happy", another is when the linting rule introduces problems/errors like
