Credo.Check.Readability.UnnecessaryAliasExpansion (Credo v1.5.0) View Source

This check has a base priority of low and works with any version of Elixir.


Alias expansion is useful but when aliasing a single module, it can be harder to read with unnecessary braces.

# preferred

alias ModuleA.Foo
alias ModuleA.{Foo, Bar}

# NOT preferred

alias ModuleA.{Foo}

Like all Readability issues, this one is not a technical concern. But you can improve the odds of others reading and liking your code by making it easier to follow.

Configuration parameters

There are no specific parameters for this check.

Like with all checks, general params can be applied.
