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 is published for Scala 2.12, 2.13 and 3.
eff core is available for the JVM, ScalaJS and scala-native. Sbt dependency:
// check maven badge above for latest version libraryDependencies += "org.atnos" %% "eff" % "5.22.0" // to write types like Reader[String, *] addCompilerPlugin("org.typelevel" %% "kind-projector" % "0.13.2" cross CrossVersion.full) // 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 Scala Code of Conduct.
Feel free to open an issue if you notice a bug, have an idea for a feature, or have a question about the code. Pull requests are also gladly accepted.
