.. title:: clang-tidy - google-objc-avoid-nsobject-new
Finds calls to ``+new`` or overrides of it, which are prohibited by the
Google Objective-C style guide.
The Google Objective-C style guide forbids calling ``+new`` or overriding it in
class implementations, preferring ``+alloc`` and ``-init`` methods to
instantiate objects.
An example:
.. code-block:: objc
NSDate *now = [NSDate new];
Foo *bar = [Foo new];
Instead, code should use ``+alloc``/``-init`` or class factory methods.
.. code-block:: objc
NSDate *now = [NSDate date];
Foo *bar = [[Foo alloc] init];
This check corresponds to the Google Objective-C Style Guide rule
