What it does

Checks for valid uses of createElement. Verifies that class name given is valid and that the properties passed for it are valid for that class.

Why this is bad

This is guaranteed to fail once it is rendered. Furthermore, the createElement itself will not error--only once it's mounted will it error.


-- Using Roact17
React.createElement("Frame", {
    key = "Valid property for React",

-- Using legacy Roact
Roact.createElement("Frame", {
    key = "Invalid property for Roact",
    ThisPropertyDoesntExist = true,
    Name = "This property should not be passed in",

    [Roact.Event.ThisEventDoesntExist] = function() end,

Roact.createElement("BadClass", {})


This lint is naive and makes several assumptions about the way you write your code. The assumptions are based on idiomatic Roact.

  1. It assumes you are either calling createElement directly or creating a local variable that's assigned to [Roact/React].createElement.
  2. It assumes if you are using a local variable, you're not reassigning it.
  3. It assumes either Roact or React is defined. undefined_variable will still lint, however.

This lint assumes legacy Roact if the variable name is Roact and Roact17 if the variable name is named React.

This lint does not verify if the value you are giving is correct, so Text = will be treated as correct. This lint, right now, only checks property and class names.

This lint is only active if you are using the Roblox standard library.
