i don't think so. maybe you can use R.reverse for the arguments

const pipeWhileNotNil = R.pipeWith((f, res) => R.isNil(res) ? res : f(res));
const f = pipeWhileNotNil(R.reverse[Math.pow, R.negate, R.inc])

Note this code is only for demo, prob it will not work @theqp

Hey folks, I friend of mine released a new javascript repl (https://github.com/tim-crisp/javascript.lol). I know this is not a ramda topic, but the guy is a ramda addicted and this project came out as a away for him to quickly prototype with ramda.

@tim-crisp
Hi all, I wasn't aware of this community until @narley told me about it, seems like a really awesome place to talk ramda.
I've put the solution @nfantone provided to the question @JamesRamm asked into a javascript.lol REPL to demonstrate it. Feel free to have a look and if you have any feedback raise an issue on the github repo!

Hi @woss:matrix.org I'm not releasing the source code just yet. I'd like to see how the community responds to the app first and in all honesty it needs a bit of a tidy up before it deserves to go public! When the day comes and I decide to release it, the source will be hosted on the github repo that @narley mentioned. Thanks for showing interest, watch this space ðŸ˜‰

on this link there is plenty of ramda code for recursive execution and loading. although this works only on node but YES now i can do it in browser https://github.com/anagolay/js-sdk/blob/main/sdk/core/src/executeOperation.ts#L42

kind of proud of this little tool I made last night:
const tagger = curry((tag, text, template) => pipe(
when(
includes(tag),
pipe(
replace(tag, text),
tagger(tag, text)
)
)
)(template))

const applyTags = (tags, template) =>
pipe(
toPairs,
map(over(lensIndex(0), s => {${s}})), reduce(pipe(append, apply(tagger)), template) )(tags) const tags = { test: 'tasty test', cheese: 'amazing smoked gouda' } const template = 'this is a {test}. I love {cheese}.' applyTags(tags, template) // "this is a tasty test. I love amazing smoked gouda." 4 replies sd @sdebaun stupid question. includes is T => T[] => boolean. Is there an equivalent function in ramda that is T[] => T => boolean? i just add my own: const includedIn: <T>(list: T[]) => (item: T) => boolean = list => item => includes(item)(list) i just want to make sure that i'm not doing something that ramda already supports that i just cant find in the docs XD 1 reply Mike Vosseller @mpv_twitter Hi, I'm new to functional programming and Ramda.

Andy Mac @zxol When you're having trouble like this, check the function signature in the docs to make sure the types match up. Akira Cai @blackwindforce Hi there, does the following combinator have a name? Or, on the other hand, how we usually deal this pattern instead of composing with the combinator? For example: // ??? const combinator = R.curry((f, g, x, y) => f ( g(x) ) ( y ) ) // findById :: ((Record K V -> Boolean) -> [Record K V] -> Maybe Record K V) -> (V -> Record K V -> Boolean) -> V -> [Record K V] -> Maybe Record K V const findById = combinator(R.find, R.propEq("id")) findById(1)([{id: 1}]) //> {id: 1} I know the combinator can be derived from the following 2 functions, where g is identity. https://github.com/ramda/ramda/blob/ed191e6a476330e37db259a5c2d04bfba0b2d63d/source/useWith.js#L21 https://github.com/fantasyland/fantasy-birds/blob/6f37c6e7daf31f1c31860f0f307555f4c7922ec2/src/dovekie.js#L4 But, is there a more elegant way to deal with it? Any suggestions or perspectives are welcome. Andy Mac @zxol Akira Cai @blackwindforce @zxol Thank you, it is exactly the same beta-reduction as mine. And then my following question comes up: If the function is variadic, then I need a I** combinator to achieve the same functionality, does it make sense? const idstarstar = R.curry((f, x, y) => f(x)(y)) // right associative // findById :: (Pred -> [a] -> Maybe a) -> (v -> Pred) -> v -> ([a] -> Maybe a) const findById = R.compose(R.find, R.propEq("id")) idstarstar(findById)(1, [{id: 1}]) https://github.com/fantasyland/fantasy-birds/blob/6f37c6e7daf31f1c31860f0f307555f4c7922ec2/src/idstarstar.js#L4 I think the problem is that f(g(x)) returns another function, so I can not give 2 arguments at once and apply to v -> ([a] -> Maybe a). Is there a more elegant way to deal with it? Any suggestions or perspectives are welcome. Andy Mac @zxol @blackwindforce i don't know of any combinator in the ramda lib, unfortunately. Perhaps the best thing to do is try to structure your program's API so the functor you're operating on is always at the end of a function call on it's own like you used in the first example. Or do the useWith identity trick. Perhaps someone else has a neat answer for you Akira Cai @blackwindforce @zxol Thank you, that make sense to me. Mike Vosseller @mpv_twitter Hi, I'm creating a simple tic-tac-toe style game and game state is stored in a game object. I've noticed two problems: 1- most of my functions need access to the game object so I need to repeatedly pass it down. 2- because of #1 when I try to compose with a pipeline I often need to curry some functions with the game object. Both seem like code smells. Is this typical? Any advice to improve? (This code uses folktale Result) import { pipeWith, chain, curry, add, multiply, update, evolve, } from "ramda"; import folktale from "folktale"; const { result: Result } = folktale; const createGame = ({ width, height } = {}) => ({ size: { width, height, }, grid: Array(width * height), // game is a grid but stored as a flat array // additional game state goes here }); // // 1) most of my functions need access to the game object so I'm repeatedly passing it down. is this typical? // const gridIndex = (game, pos) => add(pos[0], multiply(pos[1], game.size.width)); const cell = (game, pos) => game.grid[gridIndex(game, pos)]; const updateCell = (game, pos, val) => evolve({ grid: (g) => update(gridIndex(game, pos), val, g), })(game); // two contrived validators that don't require the game object const validateColGte0 = (pos) => pos[0] >= 0 ? Result.Ok(pos) : Result.Error(col must be >= 0:${pos[0]});
const validateRowGte0 = (pos) =>
pos[1] >= 0 ? Result.Ok(pos) : Result.Error(row must be >= 0: ${pos[1]}); // three validators that need the game object const validateColLtWidth = curry((game, pos) => pos[0] < game.size.width ? Result.Ok(pos) : Result.Error(col must be <${game.size.width}: ${pos[0]}) ); const validateRowLtHeight = curry((game, pos) => pos[1] < game.size.height ? Result.Ok(pos) : Result.Error(row must be <${game.size.height}: ${pos[1]}) ); const validateCellIsEmpty = curry((game, pos) => !cell(game, pos) ? Result.Ok(pos) : Result.Error(position is not empty:${pos})
);
//
// 2) To compose functions in a pipline I need to curry them with the game object
//    would it be better to make the validator signatures take a single object
//    with all possible paramaters? e.g. { game, pos }
//
const validatePosition = (game, pos) =>
pipeWith(chain)([
validateColGte0,
validateRowGte0,
validateColLtWidth(game),
validateRowLtHeight(game),
validateCellIsEmpty(game),
])(pos);
const performMove = (game, pos, val) =>
validatePosition(game, pos).matchWith({
Ok: ({ value: validatedPosition }) =>
updateCell(game, validatedPosition, val),
Error: ({ value: error }) => {
console.log(error);
return game;
},
});

// create and run the game
let game = createGame({ width: 3, height: 3 });
console.log(game);
game = performMove(game, [1, 1], "X"); // works
console.log(game);
game = performMove(game, [1, 1], "O"); // position is not empty: 1,1
console.log(game);

@theqp
any developer for @types/ramda here?
I have made a more accurate cond type definition but I don't want to download the whole @types repo
export function cond<A, B>(fns: Array<[SafePred<A>, (...a: readonly A[]) => B]>): (...a: readonly A[]) => B | undefined;
export function cond<A, B>(
fns: [
...[SafePred<A>, (...a: readonly A[]) => B],
...[SafePred<A>, (...a: readonly A[]) => B]
]
): (...a: readonly A[]) => B;
also the one with any makes no sense to me, B can be any
Mike Vosseller

Looks like Ramda doesn't include implementations of the various Fantasy Land "algebraic structures" like
Result, Either, Maybe, State, Reader, Future

Do folks typically just use the libraries listed on the Fantasy Land website here:
https://github.com/fantasyland/fantasy-land/blob/master/implementations.md

So If I wanted all of the above structures maybe I'd include and use:

Folktale: Result, Future
Sanctuary: Either, Maybe
Monastic: State

Just want to make sure there is no obvious single library that I should be using.

Thanks!

@nocksock

I'm sure there's a more elegant way to write this:

const seq = list => fns => r.call(r.apply(r.pipe, fns), list);

Still trying to wrap my head around currying, composing, piping etc.

wangzengdi
@nocksock You can use R.pipeWith(R.identity) to do almost the same thing, but I think writing simple and readable code is more important than pursuing for point-free/curry code.
const seq = R.curry((list, fns) => R.pipe(...fns)(list))
