no-class-assign

disallow reassigning class members

Recommended

The "extends": "eslint:recommended" property in a configuration file enables this rule

Disallows modifying variables of class declarations.

ClassDeclaration creates a variable, and we can modify the variable.

/*eslint-env es6*/

class A { }
A = 0;

But the modification is a mistake in most cases.

Rule Details

This rule is aimed to flag modifying variables of class declarations.

Examples of incorrect code for this rule:

/*eslint no-class-assign: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

class A { }
A = 0;
/*eslint no-class-assign: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

A = 0;
class A { }
/*eslint no-class-assign: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

class A {
b() {
A = 0;
}
}
/*eslint no-class-assign: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

let A = class A {
b() {
A = 0;
// `let A` is shadowed by the class name.
}
}

Examples of correct code for this rule:

/*eslint no-class-assign: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

let A = class A { }
A = 0; // A is a variable.
/*eslint no-class-assign: "error"*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

let A = class {
b() {
A = 0; // A is a variable.
}
}
/*eslint no-class-assign: 2*/
/*eslint-env es6*/

class A {
b(A) {
A = 0; // A is a parameter.
}
}

When Not To Use It

If you don’t want to be notified about modifying variables of class declarations, you can safely disable this rule.
