Turn non-concurrent FantasyLand 3 Applicatives concurrent.

Most time-dependent applicatives are very useful as Monads, because it gives them the ability to run sequentially, where each step depends on the previous. However, they lose the ability to run concurrently. This library allows one to wrap a Monad (with sequential ap) in an Alternative (with parallel ap).

Usage

// The concurrify function takes four arguments, explained below.
const concurrify = require ('concurrify');
 
// The Type Representative of the Applicative we want to transform.
const Future = require ('fluture');
 
// A "zero" instance and an "alt" function for "Alternative".
const zero = Future (() => {});
const alt = Future.race;
 
// An override "ap" function that runs the Applicatives concurrently.
const ap = (mx, mf) => (Future.both (mx, mf)).map (([x, f]) => f (x));
 
// A new Type Representative created by concurrify.
const ConcurrentFuture = concurrify (Future, zero, alt, ap);
 
// We can use our type as such:
const par = ConcurrentFuture (Future.of (1));
const seq = par.sequential;
seq.fork (console.error, console.log);
