Description ceklock 2014-03-30 14:58:50 UTC
For factory methods like 'MyClass.createObject()', the 'Assign return value for new variable' generates a variable with the same name of the method.

It would be nice if methods starting with 'create' or 'new', like createObject or newInstance had the same behaviour of getters, where the prefix is ignored, and the suffix is the name of the variable.

method name: createObject() -> variable name: object

method name: newInstance() -> variable name: instance
