Disallow creation of dense arrays using the
Array constructor (no-array-constructor)
Use of the
Array constructor to construct a new array is generally
discouraged in favour of array literal notation because of the single-argument
pitfall and because the
Array global may be redefined. The exception is when
the Array constructor is used to intentionally create sparse arrays of a
specified size by giving the constructor a single numeric argument.
The following patterns are considered warnings:
Array(0, 1, 2)
new Array(0, 1, 2)
The following patterns are not warnings:
When Not To Use It
This rule enforces a nearly universal stylistic concern. That being said, this rule may be disabled if the constructor style is preferred.
This rule was introduced in ESLint 0.4.0.
