TsLint rules preventing undefined leaks in strictNullChecks mode
TypeScript (latest release 2.4.1) strictNullChecks is not reliable. It does not work as it should at least in two basic cases. It does not enforce initialization of varaiables and properties, so they will be undefined, even if undefined is not in the domian. Code that (should not) compiles in strictNullChecks: ```typescript class X {
public x: number;
} let x: number; function f(): number {
return x;
} let m: number = f(); let c: X = new X(); console.log(m: ${m}); console.log(c.x: ${c.x}); ``` results in: ```sh m: undefined c.x: undefined ``` With ts-strict-null-checks You will be warned about not initialized variables and properties.

Installation

Install from npm to your devDependencies: ```sh npm install --save-dev tslint-strict-null-checks ``` Configure tslint to use the tslint-strict-null-checks folder. Add the following path to the rulesDirectory setting in your tslint.json file: ```json {
"rulesDirectory": [
"node_modules/tslint-strict-null-checks/rules"
],
"rules": {
...
}
} ```

Usage

Rule: no-uninitialized

Enforces initialization of variables and properties, when undefined is not in their domain. ```json "no-uninitialized": true, "variables", "properties" ```

Support
