Let’s consider an example.
Now, whenever we have to call such method, it’ll be something like
Now, by looking at the code given above, it is not very much clear what that argument is about.
Thus, Rubocop has introduced a cop to define these boolean arguments as keyword arguments.
The same method given above can be written as
This can be called as given below.
As we can see, it is pretty clear what that argument is about. It’ll be easier to understand what argument needs to passed here precisely.
Rubocop has made it possible to allow some methods if you want to make an exception for this rule. It can be defined as given below.
