Class naming convention

Reports class names that do not follow the recommended naming conventions.

Consistent naming allows for easier code reading and understanding. According to the Kotlin official style guide, class names should start with an uppercase letter and use camel case.

It is possible to introduce other naming rules by changing the "Pattern" regular expression.

Example:

class user(val name: String)

The quick-fix renames the class according to the Kotlin naming conventions:

class User(val name: String)
