Hey all -- anyone know if ramda can be used commercially? Thought I saw a thread on reddit/javascript the other day where one of the authors of ramda answered in the affirmative, but then I saw this license on that makes me think otherwise. Would also love feedback on whether or not the framework's enterprise-ready at present. Thanks!

The software itself is licensed under the MIT License (LICENSE.txt). The CC may apply to the website content rather than the Ramda source code. I’ll defer to @CrossEye on this.
What are the requirements that a project must satisfy in order to be “enterprise-ready”? I use Ramda at work, but I work at a smallish company.

One of our core contributors is married to the artist and children's book author/illustrator J.C. Phillips. She created our logo, and licensed it under that license. Everything else is under MIT. If that logo license is a problem, we might be able to ask for a second license as well, but I've never worried about it particularly.
So yes, commercial usage is certainly fine. Ramda has just been approved at a very large, conservative financial services company.

Good day.
I have a text file, a parse function String -> Stuff and a callback (err, Stuff) -> ?. When my read file function was optimistic I was doing readFile(pipe(parse, callback), filename), but I think I should change it to the classical readFile that calls the callback with (err, text). But then I can no longer pipe the parse function like that since it only takes the text parameter, not (err, text). I guess this means I need more applicatives / monads... is it possible to do this in a clean way with ramda?

Maybe I need an IO monad that handles all these (err, data) callbacks and a do-notation into which I can bind my parse :: String -> Stuff function to turn it into something that takes (err, String) -> Stuff and performs a callback? Or am I overcomplicating things?

Anytime you convert to that callback style you are overcomplicating things

What is usually easier to reason about is a data type that handles each computational effect separately. Common ones in this case are Either a b, Future a b, and Validation a b. You choose which one based on what you want to do.

So how to read a file and to something with the content the ramda way?
I currently have this homebrew version, can ramda simplify this? parse.event is String -> Event

@davidchambers @CrossEye thanks for the clarification -- I'm really enjoying the library!
