Description ChrisLE 2016-07-13 09:02:16 UTC
In java we have this hint, if the compiler or whatever knows, that the private string member = "test"; that I declared, will never be assigned again, we got the message that we can make it final.

For var or let in JS it would be very nice, if the editor mechanism knows that the variable will never assigned again too and give me the hint: "Make variable const".


Regards

Chris

Should not be hard to implement.

So should not only be a hint, it should be a hint with a fix too.
