new-parens

enforce or disallow parentheses when invoking a constructor with no arguments

πŸ›  Fixable

Some problems reported by this rule are automatically fixable by the --fix command line option

Requires parentheses when invoking a constructor with no arguments.

JavaScript allows the omission of parentheses when invoking a function via the new keyword and the constructor has no arguments. However, some coders believe that omitting the parentheses is inconsistent with the rest of the language and thus makes code less clear.

var person = new Person;
