Faux Pas doesn’t just look at your code — it inspects all the elements of your Xcode project together. This allows it to find completely new classes of potential issues.
Rules like these alert you to issues in your project that might manifest as bugs later down the line:
Do you want to enforce the usage of dot syntax whenever possible? Or just use it for properties declared with
@property? What about
NSNumber literals, boxed expressions, container literals, and object subscripting?
Are you auditing or taking over an existing codebase?
Faux Pas will give you a nice overview of potential issues you might want to pay attention to.
