Inspectopedia Help

Obvious explicit type

Reports local variables' explicitly given types which are obvious and thus redundant, like val f: Foo = Foo().


class Point(val x: Int, val y: Int) fun foo() { val t: Boolean = true val p: Point = Point(1, 2) val i: Int = 42 }

After the quick-fix is applied:

class Point(val x: Int, val y: Int) fun foo() { val t = true val p = Point(1, 2) val i = 42 }
