Mike Lambert
is there another proposal somewhere that would be an alternative to the hack-style proposal?
Mike Lambert
I'm reading up, looks like the other is the F# style (https://github.com/tc39/proposal-pipeline-operator#why-the-hack-pipe-operator)
Nils Riedemann
As someone, who's just getting into FP... I, well... prefer the hack pipe? :D Much clearer what's happening to me. It might not look as elegant, but I'm hoping that's not the only argument against it?

I finished working on an initial version of a pattern matching library and wanted to share it with you guys. Please share your thoughts if you have the time and are interested. Yes this is a bit of a shameless plug, but I don't know of other communities where I can share this.

Hi, I'm trying to make this peace of code more functional like, and more elegant, so this:

  isActive => isActive
    ? stopService(service)
    : startService(service)

Became this:

    partial(stopService, [service]),
    partial(startService, [service])

But to me, the first one seems easier to understand. Maybe there's a better approach? Would love any insights on this... thanks!

What is the deal with Ramda's tree shaking? Is it similar to Lodash? U need to manually import 'ramda/pick'?
Hi, when can I expect the new version with security fix for Redos ?
I am using this const hasRequiredKeys = R.allPass(R.map(R.has, disallowed_keys)) to insure required keys are in an object. I now want to reverse that, and check to insure a set of 'disallowed' keys are NOT in there.

I think I found a bug in includes:

const fn = includes(__) (['foo', 'bar'])
const fn2 = includes(__, ['foo', 'bar'])

  fn('foo'), // false
  fn('bar'), // false
  fn2('foo'), // true
  fn2('bar'), // true
  fn2('not present'), // false

Hi. We have several projects that were using lodash. We’ve started introducing Ramda. But now we want to see what it would take to replace lodash completely. My question is, does anyone have a codemod or similar to help facilitate this process?
James Ramm

Does ramda have a point-free way to do this:

const callMethod = obj => obj.someMethod;

I could do:

const callMethod = R.compose(R.call, R.prop('someMethod'))

But that does not seem any clearer and certainly less concise. I was thinking perhaps ramda has a builtin fn for it, but I couldn't find it...

Ideally, generically, e.g.:

const callMethod = curry((name, obj)  => obj[name]())

Hello James that method is call invoker
Aron Griffis
The Ramda docs reference the Maybe type, for example for traverse, but it's not part of Ramda that I can tell. Is there an implementation people commonly use?
1 reply
@agriffis so I'd say any ADT libraries that implements the fantasy-land specifications would do the trick. So personally I use folktales, but i think crocks will do the trick, too.

@kamikz85_twitter Ok, thanks!
Is there a _.get (Object, 'a.b.c', 'default ") like Lodash; method is taken from the string

No. But you can create your own wrapper for it pretty easily.
Dennie de Lange
is there a better way to do this in typescript? I need to do all kind of type assertions because of nth:
    R.nth(1) as (value: [string,string]) => string,
    R.both(R.pipe(R.isNil, R.not), R.pipe(R.startsWith('workspace:'), R.not))
  ) as (v: [string,string]) => boolean),
) as (data: Record<string,string>) =>Record<string,string>

Hi, I am having this problem with TS type. Do you have any idea?


No overload matches this call.
  The last overload gave the following error.
    Argument of type 'concat_list_10<File>' is not assignable to parameter of type 'Morphism<unknown, unknown>'.
      Types of parameters 'b' and 'value' are incompatible.
        Type 'unknown' is not assignable to type 'unknown[]'.ts(2769)
over.d.ts(106, 5): The last overload is declared here.

The code

const updateFiles =  R.concat(files)
    set(state => {
        return R.over(lensFiles, updateFiles, state)
export interface File {
    id: string;
    link: string

```export interface UserData {
    _id: string | undefined;

    files: File[];

state example

const state = {
 user: { data: {
    id: 1,
    files : [{id:"1", link: "somelink"}]


    "ramda": "^0.27.1",
    "@types/ramda": "types/npm-ramda#dist",
over(compose(somePathLens, indexIsOdd), add(1))({a: {b: [1,1,1,1]}}) // => {a: {b: {[1,2,1,2]}}
How would I implement a lens that works on a subset of an array. In this case only the items where the index is odd.
For those who are developing JavaScript apps but not using Typescript I'm wondering if you are just writing traditional JS or if you have adopted other techniques or tools that add types or help you manage the absence of types. I'm asking because I really like the benefits of using types but find TypeScript quite verbose. I'm pretty well versed in the issues & possibilities with using Functional Programming and/or Ramda with TypeScript, so not asking bout anything in that direction.
Joshua Travis
[I] don't use any tool for types 'cept JSDoc. Most modern IDEs will give a decent auto-complete based on imports and such by using the TS engine as more of a linter when doing so, but without the extra build step or complexity in the build.
@jktravis Thanks for the tip. I see there is a section in the TS handbook for doing that.

Good day to all, could you please help me to point-free this one:
// pageBelongsToDocumentWith :: Int -> Page -> Boolean
const pageBelongsToDocumentWith = documentIndex => compose(
const pageBelongsToDocumentWith = R.useWith(R.identity, R.prop('documentIndex'))
Alexei Kozhushkov


const pageBelongsToDocumentWith = R.useWith(R.identity, R.prop('documentIndex'))

Magic 😀

So how long does it take before ramda and point-free programming stop making you feel dumb because of what you can't figure out? :laughing:

Trying to figure out how to point-free this and just..... can't get my brain around it. It has to be so easy.

f => x => f(x)(x)

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong here?
import {__, curry, add} from "ramda";

const subtractNums = (a,b,c) => a - (b + c);

const subtractCurried = curry(subtractNums);
const func = subtractCurried(__)(5)(6);

console.log(func(15)) // -16

Hi everyone! I am reviewing a PR where the dev is using nested pipes. Just from the looks of it, I think there must be a better solution. Could you give me some feedback on the snippet?:
 const filterFns = pipe(
    reject(pipe(values, head, isNilOrEmpty)),
    ... // some other code, not important for now
  )([...$or, ...$and]);
pathTo and isNilOrEmpty are helpers in our code based on Ramda...
In principle, it seems to be very ugly code, but I am not a functional wizard programmer, so I am no sure how to build an argument or working alternative to it
any ideas?

The document just released 0.28.0, some issues found so far
includes(_, [1,2,3]) // => false
_ is indeed not an item in the array. But i expected different behavior similar to flip(includes). Mentioning it here because I think this issue has already been raised.

I am having an issue understanding next lens code:

import {compose, lensProp, view} from "ramda";

const truth = compose(

const obj = {
    foo: {
        bar: [false, true]

console.log(view(truth, obj)) // true

I could understand if we used pipe instead of compose, but compose performs right-to-left function execution and that confuses me.

I am failing to see how I can use pipeWith/composeWith functions with promises to make async pipeline, and how to catch errors. Can i get some help?

Hello, I got this working: https://pastebin.com/y2559aR1 -- what did I do wrong/miss and how can I simplify it?

Hi! I'm using Ramda in a project and editing with VSCode. I'm trying to document my code with JSDoc but VSCode's Intellisense automatically infers my function types (so doesn't show my JSDoc comments). Does anyone know how to force VSCode to stop inferring if there is JSDoc documentation?

 * @param { Array<Number> } arrayOfNumbers
 * @return { Number } sum - the sum of the arrayOfNumbers
const getSumOfArrayElements = reduce (add, 0)

Intellisense just shows what R.reduce returns:

const getSumOfArrayElements: (list: readonly any[]) => number

Asking here because I figure other Ramda users may have run into this. Thanks!

Joshua Travis
You might have to create a function wrapper and document that. /shrug
Otherwise it’s just a variable holding a reduce function.
@jktravis Thank you for the reply! And yeah, either that or switch to a different editor :cry: Ha. Webstorm handles this use case just fine so it'd be unfortunate to change the way we write code just because of VSCode :grimacing:

I don’t know what I have to do facing the following error concerning type.
