Disallow use of the void operator. (no-void)

禁止使用void操作符 (no-void)

The void operator takes an operand and returns undefined: void expression will evaluate expression and return undefined. It can be used to ignore any side effects expression may produce:

void 操作符需要一个运算对象并且返回 undefinedvoid expression 会计算 expression 并返回 undefined。它可以用来忽略 expression 产生的任何副作用。

The common case of using void operator is to get a “pure” undefined value as prior to ES5 the undefined variable was mutable:

使用 void 操作符的通常情况是要得到一个单纯的 undefined 值,因为之前的 ES5 undefined 值是可变的:

// will always return undefined
    return void 0;

// will return 1 in ES3 and undefined in ES5+
    undefined = 1;
    return undefined;

// will throw TypeError in ES5+
    'use strict';
    undefined = 1;

Another common case is to minify code as void 0 is shorter than undefined:

另外一种情况是缩减代码量因为 void 0undefined 要简短:

foo = void 0;
foo = undefined;

When used with IIFE (immediately-invoked function expression), void can be used to force the function keyword to be treated as an expression instead of a declaration:

当在 IIFE (立即调用函数表达式)时被使用时,void 可以用来强制 function 关键字被当作成表达式而不是声明:

var foo = 1;
void function(){ foo = 1; }() // will assign foo a value of 1
+function(){ foo = 1; }() // same as above
function(){ foo = 1; }() // will throw SyntaxError

Some code styles prohibit void operator, marking it as non-obvious and hard to read.

一些代码风格禁止使用 void 操作符,把它标记为不明显的,难以阅读的。

Rule Details

This rule aims to eliminate use of void operator.

此规则目的在于排除使用 void 操作符。

Examples of incorrect code for this rule:

错误 代码示例:

/*eslint no-void: "error"*/

void foo

var foo = void bar();

When Not To Use It

If you intentionally use the void operator then you can disable this rule.

如果你有意使用 void 操作符,可以禁用此规则。
