Lint Configuration Options

The following list shows each configuration option, along with a description, its default value, an example and lints affected.


arithmetic-side-effects-allowed

Suppress checking of the passed type names in all types of operations.

If a specific operation is desired, consider using arithmetic_side_effects_allowed_binary or arithmetic_side_effects_allowed_unary instead.

Example

arithmetic-side-effects-allowed = ["SomeType", "AnotherType"]

Noteworthy

A type, say SomeType, listed in this configuration has the same behavior of ["SomeType" , "*"], ["*", "SomeType"] in arithmetic_side_effects_allowed_binary.

Default Value: []


Affected lints:

arithmetic-side-effects-allowed-binary

Suppress checking of the passed type pair names in binary operations like addition or multiplication.

Supports the "*" wildcard to indicate that a certain type won't trigger the lint regardless of the involved counterpart. For example, ["SomeType", "*"] or ["*", "AnotherType"].

Pairs are asymmetric, which means that ["SomeType", "AnotherType"] is not the same as ["AnotherType", "SomeType"].

Example

arithmetic-side-effects-allowed-binary = [["SomeType" , "f32"], ["AnotherType", "*"]]

Default Value: []


Affected lints:

arithmetic-side-effects-allowed-unary

Suppress checking of the passed type names in unary operations like "negation" (-).

Example

arithmetic-side-effects-allowed-unary = ["SomeType", "AnotherType"]

Default Value: []


Affected lints:

avoid-breaking-exported-api

Suppress lints whenever the suggested change would cause breakage for other crates.

Default Value: true


Affected lints:

Affected lints:

disallowed-names

The list of disallowed names to lint about. NB: bar is not here since it has legitimate uses. The value ".." can be used as part of the list to indicate that the configured values should be appended to the default configuration of Clippy. By default, any configuration will replace the default value.

Default Value: ["foo", "baz", "quux"]


Affected lints:

semicolon-inside-block-ignore-singleline

Whether to lint only if it's multiline.

Default Value: false


Affected lints:

semicolon-outside-block-ignore-multiline

Whether to lint only if it's singleline.

Affected lints:

doc-valid-idents

The list of words this lint should not consider as identifiers needing ticks. The value ".." can be used as part of the list to indicate, that the configured values should be appended to the default configuration of Clippy. By default, any configuration will replace the default value. For example:

  • doc-valid-idents = ["ClipPy"] would replace the default list with ["ClipPy"].
  • doc-valid-idents = ["ClipPy", ".."] would append ClipPy to the default list.

Default Value: ["KiB", "MiB", "GiB", "TiB", "PiB", "EiB", "DirectX", "ECMAScript", "GPLv2", "GPLv3", "GitHub", "GitLab", "IPv4", "IPv6", "ClojureScript", "CoffeeScript", "JavaScript", "PureScript", "TypeScript", "WebAssembly", "NaN", "NaNs", "OAuth", "GraphQL", "OCaml", "OpenDNS", "OpenGL", "OpenMP", "OpenSSH", "OpenSSL", "OpenStreetMap", "OpenTelemetry", "WebGL", "WebGL2", "WebGPU", "TensorFlow", "TrueType", "iOS", "macOS", "FreeBSD", "TeX", "LaTeX", "BibTeX", "BibLaTeX", "MinGW", "CamelCase"]
