The worst Scala library you've seen.
What is this???
libraryDependencies += "org.polyvariant" %% "scala-git-markers" % "0.1.0" // For Scala.js, Scala Native libraryDependencies += "org.polyvariant" %%% "scala-git-markers" % "0.1.0"
Now, whenever you see git's conflict markers, for example:
val example = ( <<<<<<< HEAD "foo" ======= "baz" >>>>>>> bar )
you might be able to compile your code! Just make sure you define a value for the second ref you're merging (in this case,
val bar = "bar"
now you can do this:
example.describe // Found conflict: // - First ref: HEAD // Value: foo // - Second ref: bar // Value: baz
How does this work???
Scala allows you to define symbolic methods. Additionally, you can add extension methods. The video linked above explains this in more detail.
The desugared form of the conflict above looks similar to this:
the rest is done by this library.
This will only work in certain situations, most likely: whenever the conflict encapsulates a simple:
- parameter of a function, or
- expression in parentheses, or
- free-standing expression/statement in Scala 3 or under
