  7. A QUESTION 㺔

  8. None
  9. THE PROBLEM val x: Future[List[Int]] = ??? futureList.map(list => list.map(f))

    ^ ^ |________________| 2 maps 1 function
  10. CAN WE DO BETTER? ද࠺ͽͣ΀͚ͶΣ͜͡?

  11. INDENT! futureList.map { list => list.map(f) } αЀϔЀϕͭͼΕΡ

  12. FUNCTOR trait Functor[F[_]] { def map[A, B](fa: F[A])(f: A =>

    B): F[B] }
  13. FUNCTOR OF FUTURE val futureF = new Functor[Future] { def

    map[A, B](fa: Future[A])(f: A => B): Future[B] = fa.map(f) }
  14. future.map(f) list.map(f) | | | | Functor[Future].map(future)(f) Functor[List].map(list)(f)

  15. futureList.map(f) // not really valid scala | // but you

    get the point | Functor[Future[List]].map(futureList)(f)
  16. IN PRACTICE // create a `Functor[Future[List]]` val futureListF = Functor[Future].compose(Functor[List])

    val data: Future[List[Int]] = Future(List(1, 2, 3)) // only one map! futureListF.map(data)(_ + 1) // Future(List(2, 3, 4)) 䋚檭΄πЄϖ
  17. CATS https://github.com/typelevel/cats

  18. ABOUT FLATTENING List(1, 2, 3).map(_ + 1) // List(2, 3,

    4) List(1, 2, 3).map(n => List.fill(n)(n)) // List(List(1), List(2, 2), List(3, 3, 3)) List(1, 2, 3).map(n => List.fill(n)(n)).flatten // List(1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3) ف΢ৼ΁΀͹͵ϷφϕΨϢ϶ϐϕ΁ͯΡ
  19. FLATMAP flatten ∘ map = flatMap so these are the

    same List(1, 2, 3).map(n => List.fill(n)(n)).flatten List(1, 2, 3).flatMap(n => List.fill(n)(n))
  20. IN OTHER WORDS when life gives you F[F[A]] you probably

    wanted flatMap e.g. val f: Future[Future[Int]] = Future(42).map(x => Future(24)) val g: Future[Int] = Future(42).flatMap(x => Future(24)) F[F[A]] Ψ憎͵Ο flatMap ;௏͜͠
  21. THE 'M' WORD trait Monad[F[_]] { def pure[A](a: A): F[A]

    def map[A, B](fa: F[A])(f: A => B): F[B] def flatMap[A, B](fa: F[A])(f: A => F[B]): F[B] } ̿ϯ̀ͽতΔΡίϹ
  22. THE 'M' WORD trait Monad[F[_]] { def pure[A](a: A): F[A]

    def map[A, B](fa: F[A])(f: A => B): F[B] def flatMap[A, B](fa: F[A])(f: A => F[B]): F[B] }
  23. A LESS CONTRIVED EXAMPLE case class User(name: String) case class

    Address(city: String) Θ͜੝ͭ䋚አጱ΀ֺ
  24. A LESS CONTRIVED EXAMPLE def getUser(name: String): Future[User] def getAddress(user:

    User): Future[Address] val getCity: Future[String] = getUser("Gabriele").flatMap( gab => getAddress(gab).map( address => address.city ) )
  25. LET'S COMPREHEND THIS val getCity: Future[String] = for { gab

    <- getUser("Gabriele") address <- getAddress(gab) } yield address.city for ٖ۱ᤒ懿ͽ䨗ͧΡ
  26. LESSONS monads allow sequential execution monads can squash F[F[A]] into

    getUser("Gabriele") address <- getAddress(gab) // FAIL } yield address.city ०䤂ͭͼͭΔ͚Δͯ
  33. EVENTUALLY val city: Future[Option[String]] = for { gab <- getUser("Gabriele")

    address <- getAddress(gab.get) // } yield address.get.city // get ֵ͹͵ΟύϮ
  34. OR... val city: Future[Option[String]] = for { maybeUser <- getUser("Gabriele")

    maybeCity <- maybeUser match { case Some(user) => getAddress(user).map(_.map(_.city)) case None => Future.successful(None) } } yield maybeCity ;͚ͩ͜;΅...
  35. WHAT WE WOULD REALLY WANT val city: Future[Option[String]] = for

    { gab <- maybeUser <- getUser("Gabriele") address <- maybeAddress <- getAddress(gab) } yield address.city ཿͭ͡͹͵Θ΄
  36. futureUser.flatMap(f) maybeUser.flatMap(f) | | | | Monad[Future].flatMap(futureUser)(f) Monad[Option].flatMap(maybeUser)f)

  37. futureMaybeUser.flatMap(f) | | Monad[Future[Option]].flatMap(f)

  38. futureMaybeUser.flatMap(f) | | Monad[Future[Option]].flatMap(f)

  39. MONADS DO NOT COMPOSE HTTP://BLOG.TMORRIS.NET/POSTS/ MONADS-DO-NOT-COMPOSE/ ϯϗϖ΅ݳ౮ͭ΀͚

  40. WHAT'S THE IMPOSSIBLE PART? // trivial def compose[F[_]: Functor, G[_]:

  43. flatMap FOR Future[Option[A]] val city: Future[Option[String]] = for { maybeUser

    <- getUser("Gabriele") maybeCity <- maybeUser match { case Some(user) => getAddress(user).map(_.map(_.city)) case None => Future.successful(None) } } yield maybeCity Future[Option[String]] ΄͵Η΄ flatMap
  44. THE MONAD INTERFACE trait Monad[F[_]] { def pure[A](a: A): F[A]
