  • Feedback request on "hollistic" programming language idea
    Since you are talking about an IO monad, maybe ZIO (https://zio.dev/) offers some interesting ideas. Rather than an IO monad, ZIO is a family of IO monads with type parameters to support user-defined environments and error types.

    ZIO (interoperates with TypeLevel to some extent)

  • Java is the best
    Here is link number 1 - Previous text "ZIO"
    Nothing like cats or ZIO for Kotlin. I do hope I don't have to explain why Kotlin Arrow is not a good replacement.
  • Is there a cats-effect or ZIO for Java? If not, then what are the blockers of having an effect system as of Java 17? What are the drawbacks of such a library in Java?

    ZIO on the other hand doesn't rely on those concepts, so I guess it could be possible ? But I'm not too sure the code would look great without Scala's for-comprehensions and there may be other blockers... By the way there's been some work done in ZIO to provide a Java facade : https://github.com/zio/zio/pull/383. Not sure the interop on that would work so great tbh.

  • Advances In The ZIO 2.0 Scheduler
    reddit.com/r/scala | 2021-08-26
    Imagine how tedious it would be if folks called ZIO completely unusable when encountering ZIO bugs. A mud-slinging blog post for every stack overflow or memory leak (here and here).
  • I know the basics, what’s next?
    reddit.com/r/scala | 2021-08-15
    Scala really shines for more advanced FP (compared to Java, Kotlin, C#, Swift etc.) so I would suggest learning more about that. For example look into ZIO or Cats (or Cats Effect). You can find many tutorial videos on YouTube for these libraries.
  • What is the outlook of scala for future development?
    reddit.com/r/scala | 2021-08-12
    Look at the Adopters, there is a good chance that companies that use ZIO also use Scala: https://github.com/zio/zio
  • Need the advice to choose: FS2 vs ZIO-streams
    reddit.com/r/scala | 2021-07-28
    ZStream is part of the core ZIO library. It's not maintained by one person but by the entire core team and in the upcoming version 2 saw major updates.

  • Thread Pools on the JVM
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-07-19
    Author mentions scala. Both ZIO[1] and Cats-Effect[2] provide fibers (coroutines) over these specific threadpool designs today, without the need for Project Loom, and give the user the capability of selecting the pool type to use without explicit reference. They are usable from Java, sadly, as the schedulers and ExecutionContexts and runtime are implicitly provided in sealed companion objects and are therefore private and inaccessible to Java code, even when compiling with ScalaThenJava. Basically, you cannot run an IO from Java code.

    You can expose a method on the scala side to enter the IO world that will take your arguments and run them in the IO environment, returning a result to you, or notifying some Java class using Observer/Observable. This can, of course take Java lambdas and datatypes, thus keeping your business code in Java should you so desire. It's clunky, though, and I wish Java had easy IO primitives like Scala.

  • Why Typelevel hates ZIO?
    reddit.com/r/scala | 2021-07-06
    Let me recommend watching Programming Without Type Classes. IMO, /u/jdegoes does a characteristically excellent job of explaining the goals, and therefore the architecture, of the ZIO ecosystem. In particular, he lays out some information about how the ZIO ecosystem strives to retain the reasoning ability those of us in the Typelevel ecosystem appreciate about the type classes we've come to know and love (or know and loathe...) while also retaining the ZIO ecosystem's distinctive "pure FP the native Scala way" and what I'll loosely call its "batteries included" philosophy, by which I mostly mean that the actual ZIO type constructor combines aspects of what, in the Typelevel ecosystem, we get from the MonadError and Kleisli type class and type. This is the clearest explanation of why the ZIO ecosystem is as it is, from a conceptual standpoint, I've yet seen.
