Require braces in arrow function body (arrow-body-style)

Arrow functions can omit braces when there is a single statement in the body. This rule enforces the consistent use of braces in arrow functions.

Rule Details

This rule can enforce the use of braces around arrow function body.

Options

The rule takes one option, a string, which can be:

“always”

"arrow-body-style": ["error", "always"]

When the rule is set to "always" the following patterns are considered problems:

/*eslint arrow-body-style: ["error", "always"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/
let foo = () => 0;

The following patterns are not considered problems:

let foo = () => {
    return 0;
};
let foo = (retv, name) => {
    retv[name] = true;
    return retv;
};

“as-needed”

When the rule is set to "as-needed" the following patterns are considered problems:

/*eslint arrow-body-style: ["error", "as-needed"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

let foo = () => {
    return 0;
};
let foo = () => {
    return {
       bar: {
            foo: 1,
            bar: 2,
        }
    };
};

The following patterns are not considered problems:

/*eslint arrow-body-style: ["error", "as-needed"]*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

let foo = () => 0;
let foo = (retv, name) => {
    retv[name] = true;
    return retv;
};
let foo = () => ({
    bar: {
        foo: 1,
        bar: 2,
    }
});
let foo = () => { bar(); };
let foo = () => {};
let foo = () => { /* do nothing */ };
let foo = () => {
    // do nothing.
};

Version

This rule was introduced in ESLint 1.8.0.
