    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.
