  • iter: Generic, lazy iterators for Go 1.18

    I've been working on an iterator package for Go 1.18. Here's a quick snippet:
    6 projects | /r/golang | 10 Jan 2022
    The reason why I decided on the inner/outer architecture was because interface objects can't be used as recievers to methods (as far as I understand). As a result, my initial implementation, which didn't have this structure, was limited to functions instead of methods, which made code where iterator methods were chained extremely unreadable, since it was difficult to tell which order they were being applied in. It's a tradeoff, but I think the readability might be worth it. Do you have any ideas for alternative workarounds?
