Extensible effects are an alternative to monad transformers for computing with effects in a functional way. This library is based on the "free-er" monad and extensible effects described in Oleg Kiselyov in Freer monads, more extensible effects.
You can learn more in the User Guide:
- your first effects
- included effects:
- create your own effects
- use Member implicits
- working with different effect stacks
- a tutorial similar to the cats' tutorial for Free monads
eff as an sbt dependency:
libraryDependencies += "org.atnos" %% "eff" % "3.0.4" // to write types like Reader[String, ?] addCompilerPlugin("org.spire-math" %% "kind-projector" % "0.9.3") // to get types like Reader[String, ?] (with more than one type parameter) correctly inferred for scala 2.11.8 addCompilerPlugin("com.milessabin" % "si2712fix-plugin_2.11.8" % "1.2.0") // to get types like Reader[String, ?] (with more than one type parameter) correctly inferred for scala 2.12.x scalacOptions += "-Ypartial-unification"
eff is a Typelevel project. This means we embrace pure, typeful, functional programming, and provide a safe and friendly environment for teaching, learning, and contributing as described in the Typelevel Code of Conduct.
