    I much prefer the approach for doing some collection magic, which is essentially based upon traversable and generator magic which doesn't create temporary in-memory data structures but works on item streams instead.

    Yes. We used it heavily when processing large amounts of data from huge API responses. I like how the whole processing chain can be built on top of it, for example using nikic/iter. Generators are also the heart of a low-memory JSON parsing library halaxa/json-machine, which I maintain, and many other similar projects.

    Searching for PHP monad I found these two libraries: php-option and monad-php.
  • What's your take on Monads in php?
    3 projects | /r/PHP | 20 Jul 2022
    Looking at some libraries that implement monads (like monad-php), I feel a bit clunky using php's syntax, specifically because generics are not baked into the language (for example it's hard to know what you're binding to when you $o->bind(fn($whatIsThisExactly)=>...) ).

What are some alternatives?
