Introduction

TL;DR - YAGNI.

Inspired by Haskell’s rich set of operators, this is an approach to coding higher-order functions with operators in Python.

“It’s fun… It’s insane… It’s insanely fun.”

—John Doe

Features

  • Currying functions with <<, &

  • Piping output of functions with |

  • Composing functions with **

  • Flipping order of arguments of function with ~

  • and more

Examples

>>> from fx import f
>>> double_all = f(map) << 2 .__mul__ | list
>>> double_all([1, 2, 3])
[2, 4, 6]
>>> double_all |= f(map) << str | ' '.join
>>> double_all([1, 2, 3])
'2 4 6'
>>> sum_upto = 1 .__add__ | f(range) << 1 | sum
>>> sum_upto(100)
5050
>>> parse_hex_str = ~f(int) << 16
>>> parse_hex_str('ff')
255
>>> parse_hex_str('c0ffee')
12648430
>>> # project euler problem 1
>>> euler_p1 = f(range) << 1 | f(filter) << (lambda n: n % 3 == 0 or n % 5 == 0) | sum
>>> euler_p1(10)
23
>>> euler_p1(1000)
233168
>>> # project euler problem 20
>>> fact = f(lambda n: 1 if n == 1 else n * fact(n - 1))
>>> euler_p20 = str ** fact | sum ** f(map) << int
>>> euler_p20(10)
27
>>> euler_p20(100)
648
