gilligan: what's accu? aren't you supposed to set to result?

As @raine mentioned, it looks like your example is incomplete.
var t = obj => R.pipe(
  R.toPairs, + '.', ''), 0)),

t({ typ: 'thing', fragments: {
  '': 'bar',
  'thing.baz': 'thang'
}}) // {"baz": "thang", "foo": "bar"}
oh I forgot about adjust

Hi! Can someone explain transduce to me? I don't see the added value of transduce in the example given in the documentation:

var numbers = [1, 2, 3, 4];
var transducer = R.compose(, R.take(2));

R.transduce(transducer, R.flip(R.append), [], numbers); //=> [2, 3]

Because just doing:

transducer(numbers); //=> [2, 3]

Without an example showing me why it's useful I find it a very difficult function to grasp. :|

@scott-christopher Oh there's a whole world of stuff to read about transducers. I didn't realize that it's not something specific to Ramda :$. I'm just getting into functional programming with Ramda being my starting point. :)

To be completely honest, I still haven't played much with transducers yet either.
They're useful in a streaming context by being able to use all the familiar functions like map and filter without building intermediate lists in between.

Right, they seem to go hand in hand with functional programming in that regard. It seems like Clojure brought them into existence.
Ohh! A transducer passes a single value through the whole pipeline before moving onto the next, whereas a standard pipeline of functions operating on an array operates function-by-function, passing all values in every time and building intermediate arrays! (?)
these helped me
