Maybe2 Build Status Code Climate Gem Version

Wrap a value into a Maybe monad (or Optional type). Since monads are chainable and every value is wrapped in one, things don't blow up with NoMethodError on nils.

Useful for retrieving something in deeply nested structures where nils could be produced along the way.

Usage

maybe = Maybe.new('Hello world').upcase.reverse
maybe.class  # => Maybe
maybe.unwrap # => 'Hello world'

maybe = Maybe.new(nil).upcase.reverse
maybe.class  # => Maybe
maybe.unwrap # => nil

maybe = Maybe.new('Hello world').make_nil.upcase.reverse
maybe.class  # => Maybe
maybe.unwrap # => nil

JSON example evaluation to a string:

response = {
  data: {
    item: {
      name: 'Hello!'
    }
  }
}

Maybe.new(good_response)[:data][:item][:name].upcase.unwrap # => 'HELLO!'

JSON example evaluating to nil:

response = {
  data: {}
}

Maybe.new(good_response)[:data][:item][:name].upcase.unwrap # => nil
