'if' condition can be replaced with lambda call

Reports isEmpty, isBlank, isNotEmpty, or isNotBlank calls in an if statement to assign a default value.

The quick-fix replaces the if condition with ifEmpty or ifBlank calls.


fun test(list: List<Int>): List<Int> { return if (list.isEmpty()) { println() foo() } else { list } }

After the quick-fix is applied:

fun test(list: List<Int>): List<Int> { return list.ifEmpty { println() foo() } }

This inspection only reports if the Kotlin language version of the project or module is 1.3 or higher.
