if-expr-min-max (FURB136)#

Derived from the refurb linter.

Fix is sometimes available.

This rule is unstable and in preview. The --preview flag is required for use.

What it does#

Checks for if expressions that can be replaced with min() or max() calls.

Why is this bad?#

An if expression that selects the lesser or greater of two sub-expressions can be replaced with a min() or max() call respectively. When possible, prefer min() and max(), as they're more concise and readable than the equivalent if expression.


highest_score = score1 if score1 > score2 else score2

Use instead:

highest_score = max(score2, score1)
