At least once a day while working with dry types, I’ll accidentally write
Types::Integer instead of
Types::Int and not notice until my tests fail (or worse). Since, as most people reading this will know, Ruby 2.4 has unified ‘Bignum’ and ‘Fixnum’ into a single class called
Integer, it makes little sense that dry-types would use
Int when all its other types have names which are exactly the same as the corresponding Ruby type (
Hash, etc). Making an exception for
Integer is, imo, a big violation of the POLA, and a recipe for bugs and confusion.
This would obviously be a breaking change (unless you want to keep
Int around as an alias), but it doesn’t seem like it would be much work to get this in before dry-types 1.0.0 - wouldn’t it mostly be a simple find and replace job? I’m happy to make the PR myself if you want it done.
