Discussion on: Stop Using "data" as a Variable Name

I’m not sure if there’s any open source project doing this or if it’s even feasible to do in a generic manner. Some things like checking for returning a promise/async function to avoid get would be easy enough.

Taking advantage of team conventions, you could enforce that there is a prefix on functions, and that some prefixes are applied correctly - though there’s a limit to how much you can do here(e.g. you could enforce that if it returns a Boolean literal it must begin with is, can, or should, but that doesn’t cover all cases).

Because this kind of linter would benefit from knowing team conventions, I don’t think it would be very effective as an open source project.
