Don't Be an Asshole

If you write a complex open-sourced JS code and don't comment it well, then you are an asshole. That's it.

DBA is an experimental tool which is trying to determine a complex JS functions with very low comments / logical lines of code ratio.

$ npm i dba
 Usage: dba [options] <file>
    -h, --help     output usage information
    -V, --version  output the version number
    --effort <n>   minimum function Halstead Programming Effort (default: 1000)
    --ratio <n>    minimum function `comments count / logical sloc` ratio (default: 0)

So, you can operate with two options:

Halstead's formulation for the effort required to author (or understand) a
program characterizes effort as proportional to both difficulty and volume.

Default value is 1000. Why? I don't know. You can (and probably must) choose your own value. Read more about Halstead Metrics.

ratio = comments / logical lines of code (count of the imperative statements)

Default value is 0, i.e. functions without any comments above or inside them.

$ npm i -g dba
