autonomy

Lightweight functional utility library complementing ES6

Autonomy

Autonomy is a lightweight functional helper library. It is meant to complement an ES6 style with curried helpers, math helpers, curried accessors and higher order looping constructs.

These library is partly inspired by Haskell's Prelude.

Use it with qualified imports with the yet unfinished module import syntax or attach it to the short variable of choice. For selling points, here's how it will look with ES7 modules.

import { not, any, gcd, elem, even, range, replicate, zip3, zipWith2, reduce } from 'autonomy'
 
var partition = (p, xs) => [xs.filter(p), xs.filter(not(p))];
partition((x) => x > 5, [8,3,4,5,6]); // [ [ 8, 6 ], [ 3, 4, 5 ] ] 
 
[[3,4,5], [4,5,6]].filter(any(elem([6, 7]))); // [ [ 4, 5, 6 ] ] 
 
range(10).filter(even); // [ 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 ] 
 
replicate(5).forEach(cluster.fork); // calls a function with undefined arguments 
 
zip3(range(5), [1,2], [3,2,5]); // [ [ 1, 1, 3 ], [ 2, 2, 2 ] ] 
zipWith2(gcd, [5, 10, 15], range(5)); // [ 1, 2, 3 ] 
 
var product = reduce((x, y) => x * y, 1);
var factorial = (n) => product(range(n));
factorial(4); // 24
