distributive

Hackage Build Status

This package provides the notion that is categorically dual to Traversable.

A Distributive Functor is one that you can push any functor inside of.

distribute :: (Functor f, Distributive g) => f (g a) -> g (f a)

Compare this with the corresponding Traversable notion, sequenceA.

sequenceA :: (Applicative f, Traversable g) => g (f a) -> f (g a)

This package includes instances for common types, and includes other methods similar to traverse which fuse the use of fmap.

We only require Functor rather than some dual notion to Applicative, because the latter cannot meaningfully exist in Haskell since all comonoids there are trivial.
