eslint-plugin-flowtype v4.3.0

Flowtype linting rules for ESLint.

eslint-plugin-flowtype

GitSpo Mentions NPM version Travis build status js-canonical-style

Flow type linting rules for ESLint.

Installation

  1. Install ESLint.
  2. Install babel-eslint parser (ESLint parser does not support type annotations).
  3. Install eslint-plugin-flowtype plugin.
npm install eslint --save-dev
npm install babel-eslint --save-dev
npm install eslint-plugin-flowtype --save-dev

# Or all at once:
npm install eslint babel-eslint eslint-plugin-flowtype --save-dev

Configuration

  1. Set parser property to babel-eslint.
  2. Add plugins section and specify eslint-plugin-flowtype as a plugin.
  3. Enable rules.

Rules

array-style-complex-type

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces a particular annotation style of complex types.

Type is considered complex in these cases:

This rule takes one argument.

If it is 'verbose' then a problem is raised when using Type[] instead of Array<Type>.

If it is 'shorthand' then a problem is raised when using Array<Type> instead of Type[].

The default value is 'verbose'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = (?string)[]
// Message: Use "Array<?string>", not "(?string)[]"

// Options: ["verbose"]
type X = (?string)[]
// Message: Use "Array<?string>", not "(?string)[]"

// Options: ["shorthand"]
type X = Array<?string>
// Message: Use "(?string)[]", not "Array<?string>"

// Options: ["shorthand"]
type X = Array<{foo: string}>
// Message: Use "{foo: string}[]", not "Array<{foo: string}>"

type X = (string | number)[]
// Message: Use "Array<string | number>", not "(string | number)[]"

type X = (string & number)[]
// Message: Use "Array<string & number>", not "(string & number)[]"

type X = [string, number][]
// Message: Use "Array<[string, number]>", not "[string, number][]"

type X = {foo: string}[]
// Message: Use "Array<{foo: string}>", not "{foo: string}[]"

type X = (string => number)[]
// Message: Use "Array<string => number>", not "(string => number)[]"

type X = {
    foo: string,
    bar: number
}[]
// Message: Use "Array<{ foo: string, bar: number }>", not "{ foo: string, bar: number }[]"

type X = {
    foo: string,
    bar: number,
    quo: boolean,
    hey: Date
}[]
// Message: Use "Array<Type>", not "Type[]"

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type X = Array<?string>

// Options: ["verbose"]
type X = Array<?string>

// Options: ["shorthand"]
type X = (?string)[]

arrow-parens

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces the consistent use of parentheses in arrow functions.

This rule has a string option and an object one.

String options are:

  • "always" (default) requires parens around arguments in all cases.
  • "as-needed" enforces no braces where they can be omitted.

Object properties for variants of the "as-needed" option:

  • "requireForBlockBody": true modifies the as-needed rule in order to require parens if the function body is in an instructions block (surrounded by braces).

The following patterns are considered problems:

a => {}
// Message: undefined

a => a
// Message: undefined

a => {
}
// Message: undefined

a.then(foo => {});

boolean-style

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces a particular style for boolean type annotations. This rule takes one argument.

If it is 'boolean' then a problem is raised when using bool instead of boolean.

If it is 'bool' then a problem is raised when using boolean instead of bool.

The default value is 'boolean'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = bool
// Message: Use "boolean", not "bool"

// Options: ["boolean"]
type X = bool
// Message: Use "boolean", not "bool"

// Options: ["bool"]
type X = boolean
// Message: Use "bool", not "boolean"

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type X = boolean

// Options: ["boolean"]
type X = boolean

// Options: ["bool"]
type X = bool

// Options: ["boolean"]
// Settings: {"flowtype":{"onlyFilesWithFlowAnnotation":true}}
type X = bool

define-flow-type

delimiter-dangle

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent use of trailing commas in Object and Tuple annotations.

This rule takes two arguments which both mirror ESLint's default comma-dangle rule. The first argument is for Object and Tuple annotations. The second argument is used for Interface annotations as ESLint's default comma-dangle doesn't apply to interfaces - this defaults to whatever the first argument is.

If it is 'never' then a problem is raised when there is a trailing comma.

If it is 'always' then a problem is raised when there is no trailing comma.

If it is 'always-multiline' then a problem is raised when there is no trailing comma on a multi-line definition, or there is a trailing comma on a single-line definition.

If it is 'only-multiline' then a problem is raised when there is a trailing comma on a single-line definition. It allows, but does not enforce, trailing commas on multi-line definitions.

The default value is 'never'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = { foo: string, }
// Message: Unexpected trailing delimiter

// Options: ["never"]
type X = { foo: string, }
// Message: Unexpected trailing delimiter

generic-spacing

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent spacing within generic type annotation parameters.

This rule takes one argument. If it is 'never' then a problem is raised when there is a space surrounding the generic type parameters. If it is 'always' then a problem is raised when there is no space surrounding the generic type parameters.

The default value is 'never'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = Promise< string>
// Message: There must be no space at start of "Promise" generic type annotation

// Options: ["never"]
type X = Promise<  string>
// Message: There must be no space at start of "Promise" generic type annotation

type X = FooBar<string >
// Message: There must be no space at end of "FooBar" generic type annotation

type X = Promise< string >
// Message: There must be no space at start of "Promise" generic type annotation
// Message: There must be no space at end of "Promise" generic type annotation

type X = Promise< (foo), bar, (((baz))) >

newline-after-flow-annotation

This rule requires an empty line after the Flow annotation.

Options

The rule has a string option:

  • "always" (default): Enforces that @flow annotations be followed by an empty line, separated by newline (LF)
  • "always-windows": Identical to "always", but will use a CRLF when autofixing
  • "never": Enforces that @flow annotations are not followed by empty lines
{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/newline-after-flow-annotation": [
      2,
      "always"
    ]
  }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

// @flow
import Foo from './foo';
// Message: Expected newline after flow annotation

// Options: ["always"]
// @flow
import Foo from './foo';
// Message: Expected newline after flow annotation

// Options: ["always-windows"]
// @flow
import Foo from './foo';
// Message: Expected newline after flow annotation

// Options: ["never"]
// @flow


// Message: Expected no newline after flow annotation

The following patterns are not considered problems:

no-existential-type

Disallows use of the existential type (*). See more

{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/no-existential-type": 2
  }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

type T = *;

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type T = string | null

no-flow-fix-me-comments

Disallows $FlowFixMe comment suppressions.

This is especially useful as a warning to ensure instances of $FlowFixMe in your codebase get fixed over time.

Options

This rule takes an optional RegExp that comments a text RegExp that makes the supression valid.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/no-flow-fix-me-comments": [
            1,
            "TODO\s+[0-9]+"
        ]
    }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

// $FlowFixMe I am doing something evil here
const text = 'HELLO';
// Message: $FlowFixMe is treated as `any` and should be fixed.

// Options: ["TODO [0-9]+"]
// $FlowFixMe I am doing something evil here
const text = 'HELLO';
// Message: $FlowFixMe is treated as `any` and should be fixed. Fix it or match `/TODO [0-9]+/`.

// Options: ["TODO [0-9]+"]
// $FlowFixMe TODO abc 47 I am doing something evil here

// $FlowFixMeProps I am doing something evil here
const text = 'HELLO';
// Message: $FlowFixMe is treated as `any` and should be fixed. Fix it or match `/TODO [0-9]+/`.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

const text = 'HELLO';

// Options: ["TODO [0-9]+"]
// $FlowFixMe TODO 48
const text = 'HELLO';

no-mixed

Warns against "mixed" type annotations. These types are not strict enough and could often be made more specific.

The following patterns are considered problems:

The following patterns are considered problems:

function foo(thing): mixed {}
// Message: Unexpected use of mixed type

function foo(thing): Promise<mixed> {}
// Message: Unexpected use of mixed type

function foo(thing): Promise<Promise<mixed>> {}
// Message: Unexpected use of mixed type

The following patterns are not considered problems:

function foo(thing): string {}

function foo(thing): Promise<string> {}

function foo(thing): Promise<Promise<string>> {}

(foo?: string) => {}

(foo: ?string) => {}

(foo: { a: string }) => {}

(foo: { a: ?string }) => {}

(foo: string[]) => {}

type Foo = string

type Foo = { a: string }

type Foo = { (a: string): string }

function foo(thing: string) {}

var foo: string

class Foo { props: string }

no-mutable-array

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Requires use of $ReadOnlyArray instead of just Array or array shorthand notation. $ReadOnlyArray is immutable array collection type and the superclass of Array and tuple types in Flow. Use of $ReadOnlyArray instead of Array can solve some "problems" in typing with Flow (e.g., 1, 2).

General reasons for using immutable data structures:

  • They are simpler to construct, test, and use
  • They help to avoid temporal coupling
  • Their usage is side-effect free (no defensive copies)
  • Identity mutability problem is avoided
  • They always have failure atomicity
  • They are much easier to cache

Note that initialization of a variable with an empty array is considered valid (e.g., const values: Array<string> = [];). This behavior resembles the behavior of Flow's unsealed objects, as it is assumed that empty array is intended to be mutated.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = Array<string>
// Message: Use "$ReadOnlyArray" instead of "Array"

type X = string[]
// Message: Use "$ReadOnlyArray" instead of array shorthand notation

const values: Array<Array<string>> = [];
// Message: Use "$ReadOnlyArray" instead of "Array"

let values: Array<Array<string>>;
// Message: Use "$ReadOnlyArray" instead of "Array"
// Message: Use "$ReadOnlyArray" instead of "Array"

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type X = $ReadOnlyArray<string>

const values: Array<$ReadOnlyArray<string>> = [];

const values: $ReadOnlyArray<string>[] = [];

const values: Array<$ReadOnlyArray<string>> = new Array();

const values: Array<$ReadOnlyArray<string>> = Array();

no-primitive-constructor-types

Disallows use of primitive constructors as types, such as Boolean, Number and String. See more.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/no-primitive-constructor-types": 2
    }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

type x = Number
// Message: Unexpected use of Number constructor type.

type x = String
// Message: Unexpected use of String constructor type.

type x = Boolean
// Message: Unexpected use of Boolean constructor type.

type x = { a: Number }
// Message: Unexpected use of Number constructor type.

type x = { a: String }
// Message: Unexpected use of String constructor type.

type x = { a: Boolean }
// Message: Unexpected use of Boolean constructor type.

(x: Number) => {}
// Message: Unexpected use of Number constructor type.

(x: String) => {}
// Message: Unexpected use of String constructor type.

(x: Boolean) => {}
// Message: Unexpected use of Boolean constructor type.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type x = number

type x = string

type x = boolean

type x = { a: number }

type x = { a: string }

type x = { a: boolean }

(x: number) => {}

(x: string) => {}

(x: boolean) => {}

type x = MyNumber

type x = MyString

type x = MyBoolean

no-types-missing-file-annotation

Disallows Flow type imports, aliases, and annotations in files missing a valid Flow file declaration (or a @noflow annotation).

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/no-types-missing-file-annotation": 2
    }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

const x: number = 42;
// Message: Type annotations require valid Flow declaration.

type FooType = number;
// Message: Type aliases require valid Flow declaration.

import type A from "a"
// Message: Type imports require valid Flow declaration.

import type {A} from "a"
// Message: Type imports require valid Flow declaration.

import {type A} from "a"
// Message: Type imports require valid Flow declaration.

export type {A} from "a"
// Message: Type exports require valid Flow declaration.

function t<T>(): T{}
// Message: Type annotations require valid Flow declaration.

// Settings: {"flowtype":{"onlyFilesWithFlowAnnotation":true}}
const x: number = 42;
// Message: Type annotations require valid Flow declaration.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

// @flow
const x: number = 42;

/* @flow weak */
type FooType = number;

/* @noflow */
type FooType = number;

/* @noflow */
import type A from "a"

/* @noflow */
import {type A} from "a"

/* @noflow */
export type {A} from "a"

// an unrelated comment
// @flow
export type {A} from "a"

no-unused-expressions

An extension of ESLint's no-unused-expressions. This rule ignores type cast expressions, but otherwise behaves the same as ESLint's no-unused-expressions.

Bare type casts are useful, for example to assert the exhaustiveness of a switch:

type Action
  = { type: 'FOO', doFoo: (_: number) => void }
  | { type: 'BAR', doBar: (_: string) => void };

type State = { foo: number, bar: string };

function runFooBar(action: Action, state: State): void {
  switch (action.type) {
    case 'FOO':
      doFoo(state.foo);
      break;
    case 'BAR':
      doBar(state.bar);
      break;
    default:
      (action: empty);  // type error when `Action` is extended with new types
      console.error(`Impossible action: ${action.toString()}`);
  }
}

This rule takes the same arguments as ESLint's no-unused-expressions. See that rule's documentation for details.

The following patterns are considered problems:

foo + 1
// Message: Expected an assignment or function call and instead saw an expression.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

(foo: number)

no-weak-types

Warns against weak type annotations any, Object and Function. These types can cause flow to silently skip over portions of your code, which would have otherwise caused type errors.

This rule optionally takes one argument, an object to configure which type warnings to enable. By default, all of the warnings are enabled. e.g. to disable the any warning (allowing it to exist in your code), while continuing to warn about Object and Function:

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/no-weak-types": [2, {
            "any": false,
            "Object": true,
            "Function": true
        }]
    }
}

// or, the following is equivalent as default is true:

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/no-weak-types": [2, {
            "any": false
        }]
    }
}

object-type-delimiter

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent separators between properties in Flow object types.

This rule takes one argument.

If it is 'comma' then a problem is raised when using ; as a separator.

If it is 'semicolon' then a problem is raised when using , as a separator.

The default value is 'comma'.

This rule is ported from babel/flow-object-type, however the default option was changed.

The following patterns are considered problems:

// Options: ["semicolon"]
type Foo = { a: Foo, b: Bar }
// Message: Prefer semicolons to commas in object and class types

// Options: ["comma"]

require-compound-type-alias

Requires to make a type alias for all union and intersection types. If these are used in "raw" forms it might be tempting to just copy&paste them around the code. However, this brings sort of a source code pollution and unnecessary changes on several parts when these compound types need to be changed.

Options

The rule has a string option:

  • "never"
  • "always"

The default value is "always".

The following patterns are considered problems:

function foo(bar: "A" | "B") {}
// Message: All union types must be declared with named type alias.

const foo: "A" | "B" = "A";
// Message: All union types must be declared with named type alias.

type Foo = { bar: "A" | "B" };
// Message: All union types must be declared with named type alias.

function foo(bar: { n: number } | { s: string }) {}
// Message: All union types must be declared with named type alias.

function foo(bar: { n: number } & { s: string }) {}
// Message: All intersection types must be declared with named type alias.

const foo: { n: number } & { s: string } = { n: 0, s: "" };
// Message: All intersection types must be declared with named type alias.

type Foo = { bar: { n: number } & { s: string } };
// Message: All intersection types must be declared with named type alias.

function foo(bar: { n: number } & { s: string }) {}
// Message: All intersection types must be declared with named type alias.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type Foo = "A" | "B";

type Bar = "A" | "B"; function foo(bar: Bar) {}

type Foo = { disjoint: "A", n: number } | { disjoint: "B", s: string };

type Foo = { n: number } & { s: string };

type Bar = { n: number } & { s: string }; function foo(bar: Bar) {}

// Options: ["never"]
function foo(bar: "A" | "B") {}

// Options: ["never"]
function foo(bar: { n: number } & { s: string }) {}

require-exact-type

This rule enforces exact object types.

Options

The rule has one string option:

  • "always" (default): Report all object type definitions that aren't exact.
  • "never": Report all object type definitions that are exact.
{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/require-exact-type": [
      2,

}

{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/require-exact-type": [
      2,
      "never"

  }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

type foo = {};
// Message: Type identifier 'foo' must be exact.

type foo = { bar: string };

require-indexer-name

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

This rule validates Flow object indexer name.

Options

The rule has a string option:

  • "never" (default): Never report files that are missing an indexer key name.
  • "always": Always report files that are missing an indexer key name.
{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/require-indexer-name": [
      2,
      "always"
    ]
  }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

type foo = { [string]: number };
// Message: All indexers must be declared with key name.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type foo = { [key: string]: number };

// Options: ["never"]
type foo = { [key: string]: number };

// Options: ["never"]
type foo = { [string]: number };

require-inexact-type

This rule enforces explicit inexact object types.

Options

The rule has one string option:

  • "always" (default): Report all object type definitions that aren't explicit inexact, but ignore exact objects.
  • "never": Report all object type definitions that are explicit inexact.
{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/require-inexact-type": [
      2,
      "always"
    ]
  }
}

{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/require-inexact-type": [
      2,
      "never"
    ]
  }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

type foo = {};
// Message: Type must be explicit inexact.

type foo = { bar: string };
// Message: Type must be explicit inexact.

// Options: ["always"]
type foo = {};
// Message: Type must be explicit inexact.

// Options: ["always"]
type foo = { bar: string };
// Message: Type must be explicit inexact.

// Options: ["never"]
type foo = {...};
// Message: Type must not be explicit inexact.

// Options: ["never"]
type foo = { bar: string, ... };
// Message: Type must not be explicit inexact.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

interface Foo { foo: string }

declare class Foo { foo: string }

type foo = {| |};

type foo = {| bar: string |};

type foo = { [key: string]: string, ... };

require-parameter-type

Requires that all function parameters have type annotations.

Options

You can skip all arrow functions by providing the excludeArrowFunctions option with true.

Alternatively, you can want to exclude only concise arrow functions (e.g. x => x * 2). Provide excludeArrowFunctions with expressionsOnly for this.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-parameter-type": [
            2,
            {
              "excludeArrowFunctions": true
            }
        ]
    }
}

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-parameter-type": [
            2,
            {
              "excludeArrowFunctions": "expressionsOnly"
            }
        ]
    }
}

You can exclude parameters that match a certain regex by using excludeParameterMatch.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-parameter-type": [
            2,
            {
              "excludeParameterMatch": "^_"
            }
        ]
    }
}

This excludes all parameters that start with an underscore (_). The default pattern is a^, which doesn't match anything, i.e., all parameters are checked.

The following patterns are considered problems:

(foo) => {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

function x(foo) {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeArrowFunctions":true}]
function x(foo) {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

(foo = 'FOO') => {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

(...foo) => {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

({foo}) => {}
// Message: Missing "{foo}" parameter type annotation.

([foo]) => {}
// Message: Missing "[foo]" parameter type annotation.

({foo = 1} = {}) => {}
// Message: Missing "{foo = 1}" parameter type annotation.

// Settings: {"flowtype":{"onlyFilesWithFlowAnnotation":true}}
// @flow
(foo) => {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeArrowFunctions":"expressionsOnly"}]
(foo) => {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeArrowFunctions":"expressionsOnly"}]
function x(foo) {}
// Message: Missing "foo" parameter type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeParameterMatch":"^_"}]
(_foo: number, bar) => {}
// Message: Missing "bar" parameter type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeParameterMatch":"^_"}]
(_foo, bar) => {}
// Message: Missing "bar" parameter type annotation.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

(foo: string) => {}

(foo: string = 'FOO') => {}

(...foo: string) => {}

const f: Foo = (a, b) => 42;

({foo}: {foo: string}) => {}

([foo]: Array) => {}

type fn = (a: string, b: number) => number;
const f: fn = (a, b) => {}

// Settings: {"flowtype":{"onlyFilesWithFlowAnnotation":true}}
(foo) => {}

// Options: [{"excludeArrowFunctions":true}]
(foo) => {}

// Options: [{"excludeArrowFunctions":"expressionsOnly"}]
(foo) => 3

// Options: [{"excludeParameterMatch":"^_"}]
(_foo, bar: string) => {}

// Options: [{"excludeParameterMatch":"^_"}]
(_foo: number, bar: string) => {}

// Settings: {"flowtype":{"onlyFilesWithFlowAnnotation":true}}
(foo) => {}

require-readonly-react-props

This rule validates that React props are marked as $ReadOnly. React props are immutable and modifying them could lead to unexpected results. Marking prop shapes as $ReadOnly avoids these issues.

The rule tries its best to work with both class and functional components. For class components, it does a fuzzy check for one of "Component", "PureComponent", "React.Component" and "React.PureComponent". It doesn't actually infer that those identifiers resolve to a proper React.Component object.

For example, this will NOT be checked:

import MyReact from 'react';
class Foo extends MyReact.Component { }

As a result, you can safely use other classes without getting warnings from this rule:

class MyClass extends MySuperClass { }

React's functional components are hard to detect statically. The way it's done here is by searching for JSX within a function. When present, a function is considered a React component:

// this gets checked
type Props = { };
function MyComponent(props: Props) {
    return <p />;
}

// this doesn't get checked since no JSX is present in a function
type Options = { };
function SomeHelper(options: Options) {
    // ...
}

// this doesn't get checked since no JSX is present directly in a function
function helper() { return <p /> }
function MyComponent(props: Props) {
    return helper();
}

The rule only works for locally defined props that are marked with a $ReadOnly or using covariant notation. It doesn't work with imported props:

// the rule has no way of knowing whether ImportedProps are read-only
import { type ImportedProps } from './somewhere';
class Foo extends React.Component<ImportedProps> { }


// the rule also checks for covariant properties
type Props = {|
    +foo: string
|};
class Bar extends React.Component<Props> { }

// this fails because the object is not fully read-only
type Props = {|
    +foo: string,
    bar: number,
|};
class Bar extends React.Component<Props> { }

// this fails because spreading makes object mutable (as of Flow 0.98)
// https://github.com/gajus/eslint-plugin-flowtype/pull/400#issuecomment-489813899
type Props = {|
    +foo: string,
    ...bar,
|};
class Bar extends React.Component<Props> { }
{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-readonly-react-props": 2
    }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

type Props = { }; class Foo extends React.Component<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type OtherProps = { foo: string }; class Foo extends React.Component<OtherProps> { }
// Message: OtherProps must be $ReadOnly

class Foo extends React.Component<{}> { }
// Message: Foo class props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = { bar: {} }; class Foo extends React.Component<Props, State> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = { }; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = { }; class Foo extends PureComponent<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

export type Props = {}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = {| foo: string |}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = {| +foo: string, ...bar |}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = {| +foo: string, -bar: number |}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = { }; function Foo(props: Props) { return <p /> }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

type Props = { }; function Foo(props: Props) { return foo ? <p /> : <span /> }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

function Foo(props: {}) { return <p /> }
// Message: Foo component props must be $ReadOnly

export type Props = {}; function Foo(props: Props) { return <p /> }
// Message: Props must be $ReadOnly

The following patterns are not considered problems:

class Foo extends React.Component<$ReadOnly<{}>> { }

type Props = $ReadOnly<{}>; class Foo extends React.Component<Props> { }

type Props = $ReadOnly<{}>; class Foo extends React.PureComponent<Props> { }

class Foo extends React.Component<$ReadOnly<{}, State>> { }

type FooType = {}; class Foo extends Bar<FooType> { }

class Foo { }

export type Props = $ReadOnly<{}>; class Foo extends Component<Props, State> { }

export type Props = $ReadOnly<{}>; export class Foo extends Component<Props> { }

type Props = {| +foo: string |}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }

type Props = {| +foo: string, +bar: number |}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }

type Props = $FlowFixMe; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }

type Props = {||}; class Foo extends Component<Props> { }

class Foo extends Component<{||}> { }

class Foo extends React.Component<UnknownProps> { }

import { type Props } from "file"; class Foo extends React.Component<Props> { }

type Props = {}; function Foo() { }

type Props = $ReadOnly<{}>; function Foo(props: Props) { }

type Props = {}; function Foo(props: OtherProps) { }

function Foo() { return <p /> }

function Foo(props: $FlowFixMe) { return <p /> }

function Foo(props: {||}) { return <p /> }

require-return-type

Requires that functions have return type annotation.

Options

You can skip all arrow functions by providing the excludeArrowFunctions option with true.

Alternatively, you can exclude a concise arrow function (e.g. () => 2). Provide excludeArrowFunctions with expressionsOnly for this.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-return-type": [
            2,
            "always",
            {
              "excludeArrowFunctions": true
            }
        ]
    }
}

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-return-type": [
            2,
            "always",
            {
              "excludeArrowFunctions": "expressionsOnly"
            }
        ]
    }
}

You can exclude or include specific tests with the includeOnlyMatching and excludeMatching rules.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-return-type": [
            2,
            "always",
            {
              "includeOnlyMatching": [
                  "^F.*",
                  "Ba(r|z)"
              ]
            }
        ]
    }
}

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-return-type": [
            2,
            "always",
            {
              "excludeMatching": [
                  "^F.*",
                  "Ba(r|z)"
              ]
            }
        ]
    }
}

Both rules take an array that can contain either strings or valid RegExp statements.

require-valid-file-annotation

This rule validates Flow file annotations.

This rule can optionally report missing or missed placed annotations, common typos (e.g. // @floww), and enforce a consistant annotation style.

Options

The rule has a string option:

  • "never" (default): Never report files that are missing an @flow annotation.
  • "always": Always report files that are missing an @flow annotation

This rule has an object option:

  • "annotationStyle" - Enforce a consistant file annotation style.

    • "none" (default): Either annotation style is accepted.
    • "line": Require single line annotations (i.e. // @flow).
    • "block": Require block annotations (i.e. /* @flow */).
  • "strict" - Enforce a strict flow file annotation.

    • false (default): strict flow annotation is not required.
    • true: Require strict flow annotation (i.e. // @flow strict).

require-variable-type

Requires that all variable declarators have type annotations.

Options

You can exclude variables that match a certain regex by using excludeVariableMatch.

This excludes all parameters that start with an underscore (_). The default pattern is a^, which doesn't match anything, i.e., all parameters are checked.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-variable-type": [
            2,
            {
              "excludeVariableMatch": "^_"
            }
        ]
    }
}

You can choose specific variable types (var, let, and const) to ignore using excludeVariableTypes.

This excludes var and let declarations from needing type annotations, but forces const declarations to have it. By default, all declarations are checked.

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/require-variable-type": [
            2,
            {
              "excludeVariableTypes": {
                "var": true,
                "let": true,
                "const": false,
              }
            }
        ]
    }
}

The following patterns are considered problems:

var foo = "bar"
// Message: Missing "foo" variable type annotation.

var foo : string = "bar", bar = 1
// Message: Missing "bar" variable type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeVariableMatch":"^_"}]
var _foo = "bar", bar = 1
// Message: Missing "bar" variable type annotation.

// Options: [{"excludeVariableTypes":{"let":false,"var":true}}]
var foo = "bar", bar = 1; const oob : string = "oob"; let hey = "yah"
// Message: Missing "hey" variable type annotation.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

var foo : string = "bar"

var foo : string = "bar", bar : number = 1

// Options: [{"excludeVariableMatch":"^_"}]
var _foo = "bar", bar : number = 1

// Options: [{"excludeVariableTypes":{"var":true}}]
var foo = "bar", bar = 1

// Options: [{"excludeVariableTypes":{"let":true,"var":true}}]
var foo = "bar", bar = 1; const oob : string = "oob"; let hey = "yah"

semi

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent use of semicolons after type aliases.

This rule takes one argument. If it is 'never' then a problem is raised when there is a semicolon after a type alias. If it is 'always' then a problem is raised when there is no semicolon after a type alias.

The default value is 'always'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

// Options: []
type FooType = {}
// Message: Missing semicolon.

// Options: ["always"]
type FooType = {}
// Message: Missing semicolon.

// Options: ["never"]
type FooType = {};
// Message: Extra semicolon.

// Options: []
opaque type FooType = {}
// Message: Missing semicolon.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type FooType = {};

// Options: ["always"]
type FooType = {};

// Options: ["always"]
type FooType = { a: number;
 b: string;
 };

// Options: ["never"]

sort-keys

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces sorting of Object annotations.

This rule mirrors ESlint's sort-keys rule.

Options

The first option specifies sort order.

  • "asc" (default) - enforce ascending sort order.
  • "desc" - enforce descending sort order.

The second option takes an object with two possible properties.

  • caseSensitive - if true, enforce case-sensitive sort order. Default is true.
  • natural - if true, enforce natural sort order. Default is false.
{
  "rules": {
    "flowtype/sort-keys": [
      2,
      "asc", {
        "caseSensitive": true,

space-after-type-colon

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent spacing after the type annotation colon.

Options

This rule has a string argument.

  • "always" (default): Require a space after the type annotation colon (e.g. foo: BarType).
  • "never": Require no spaces after the type annotation colon (e.g. foo:BarType).

This rule has an option object.

  • "allowLineBreak" - Allow a line break to count as a space following the annotation colon.
    • "true": Enable
    • "false": Disable

space-before-generic-bracket

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent spacing before the opening < of generic type annotation parameters.

This rule takes one argument. If it is 'never' then a problem is raised when there is a space before the <. If it is 'always' then a problem is raised when there is no space before the <.

The default value is 'never'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = Promise <string>
// Message: There must be no space before "Promise" generic type annotation bracket

// Options: ["never"]
type X = Promise <string>
// Message: There must be no space before "Promise" generic type annotation bracket

type X = Promise  <string>

// Options: ["always"]
type X = Promise<string>
// Message: There must be a space before "Promise" generic type annotation bracket

// Options: ["always"]

// Options: ["always"]
type X = Promise <string>

space-before-type-colon

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent spacing before the type annotation colon.

This rule takes one argument. If it is 'always' then a problem is raised when there is no space before the type annotation colon. If it is 'never' then a problem is raised when there is a space before the type annotation colon. The default value is 'never'.

spread-exact-type

Enforce object types, that are spread to be exact type explicitly.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type bar = {...{test: string}}
// Message: Use $Exact to make type spreading safe.

type foo = {test: number}; type bar = {...foo}
// Message: Use $Exact to make type spreading safe.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type bar = {...$Exact<{test: string}>}

type foo = {test: number}; type bar = {...$Exact<foo>}

type-id-match

Enforces a consistent naming pattern for type aliases.

Options

This rule needs a text RegExp to operate with Its signature is as follows:

{
    "rules": {
        "flowtype/type-id-match": [
            2,
            "^([A-Z][a-z0-9]*)+Typequot;
        ]
    }
}

'^([A-Z][a-z0-9]*)+Type$' is the default pattern.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type foo = {};
// Message: Type identifier 'foo' does not match pattern '/^([A-Z][a-z0-9]*)+Type$/'.

// Options: ["^fooquot;]
type FooType = {};
// Message: Type identifier 'FooType' does not match pattern '/^foo$/'.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

type FooType = {};

// Options: ["^fooquot;]
type foo = {};

// Settings: {"flowtype":{"onlyFilesWithFlowAnnotation":true}}
type foo = {};

type-import-style

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces a particular style for type imports:

// 'identifier' style
import {type T, type U, type V} from '...';

// 'declaration' style
import type {T, U, V} from '...';

Options

The rule has a string option:

  • "identifier" (default): Enforces that type imports are all in the 'identifier' style.
  • "declaration": Enforces that type imports are all in the 'declaration' style.

This rule has an object option:

  • ignoreTypeDefault - if true, when in "identifier" mode, default type imports will be ignored. Default is false.

The following patterns are considered problems:

import type {A, B} from 'a';
// Message: Unexpected "import type"

// Options: ["identifier"]
import type {A, B} from 'a';
// Message: Unexpected "import type"

// Options: ["identifier"]
import type {A, B as C} from 'a';
// Message: Unexpected "import type"

// Options: ["identifier"]
import type A from 'a';
// Message: Unexpected "import type"

// Options: ["declaration"]
import {type A, type B} from 'a';
// Message: Unexpected type import
// Message: Unexpected type import

The following patterns are not considered problems:

import {type A, type B} from 'a';

// Options: ["identifier"]
import {type A, type B} from 'a';

// Options: ["declaration"]
import type {A, B} from 'a';

// Options: ["identifier"]
import typeof * as A from 'a';

// Options: ["identifier",{"ignoreTypeDefault":true}]
import type A from 'a';

// Options: ["identifier"]
declare module "m" { import type A from 'a'; }

union-intersection-spacing

The --fix option on the command line automatically fixes problems reported by this rule.

Enforces consistent spacing around union and intersection type separators (| and &).

This rule takes one argument. If it is 'always' then a problem is raised when there is no space around the separator. If it is 'never' then a problem is raised when there is a space around the separator.

The default value is 'always'.

The following patterns are considered problems:

type X = string| number;
// Message: There must be a space before union type annotation separator

// Options: ["always"]
type X = string| number;
// Message: There must be a space before union type annotation separator

type X = string |number;

use-flow-type

Marks Flow type alias declarations as used.

Used to suppress no-unused-vars errors that are triggered by type aliases.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

declare class A {}
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

declare function A(): Y
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

declare module A {}
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

declare module A { declare var a: Y }
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

declare var A: Y
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

import type A from "a"; type X<B = ComponentType<A>> = { b: B }; let x: X; console.log(x);
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

import type A from "a"; type X<B = A<string>> = { b: B }; let x: X; console.log(x);
// Additional rules: {"no-unused-vars":1}

valid-syntax

Deprecated Babylon (the Babel parser) v6.10.0 fixes parsing of the invalid syntax this plugin warned against.

Checks for simple Flow syntax errors.

The following patterns are not considered problems:

function x(foo: string = "1") {}

function x(foo: Type = bar()) {}
