Λrrow is a library for Typed Functional Programming in Kotlin.

Arrow aims to provide a lingua franca of interfaces and abstractions across Kotlin libraries. For this, it includes the most popular data types such as Option, Either, Validated etc and functional operators such as traverse and computation blocks to empower users to write pure FP apps and libraries built atop higher order abstractions.

Use the list below to learn more about Λrrow's main features.

Setup

JDK

Make sure to have the latest version of JDK 1.8 (or higher) installed.

JDK 16 doesn't currently work but will do once we upgrade to Gradle 7.0

Android

Arrow supports Android starting on API 21 and up.

Gradle

Basic Setup

In your project's root build.gradle, append this repository to your list:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        mavenCentral()
    }
}

Add the dependencies into the project's build.gradle:

Λrrow Core
def arrow_version = "0.13.2"
dependencies {
    implementation "io.arrow-kt:arrow-core:$arrow_version"
}
Λrrow Core + Λrrow Optics
apply plugin: 'kotlin-kapt'

def arrow_version = "0.13.2"
dependencies {
    implementation "io.arrow-kt:arrow-optics:$arrow_version"
    kapt    "io.arrow-kt:arrow-meta:$arrow_version"
}
Λrrow Core + Λrrow Fx
def arrow_version = "0.13.2"
dependencies {
    implementation "io.arrow-kt:arrow-fx-coroutines:$arrow_version"
}

BOM file

To avoid specifying the Arrow version for every dependency, a BOM file is available:

    implementation platform("io.arrow-kt:arrow-stack:$arrow_version")

    implementation "io.arrow-kt:arrow-core"
    implementation "io.arrow-kt:arrow-fx-coroutines"
    ...

Maven

Basic Setup

Make sure to have at least the latest version of JDK 1.8 installed. Add to your pom.xml file the following properties:

<properties>
    <kotlin.version>1.4.0</kotlin.version>
    <arrow.version>0.13.2</arrow.version>
</properties>

Add the dependencies that you want to use:

<dependency>
    <groupId>io.arrow-kt</groupId>
    <artifactId>arrow-core</artifactId>
    <version>${arrow.version}</version>
</dependency>

Enabling kapt for the Optics DSL

For the Optics DSL, enable annotation processing using Kotlin plugin:

<plugin>
    <groupId>org.jetbrains.kotlin</groupId>
    <artifactId>kotlin-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>${kotlin.version}</version>
    <executions>
        <execution>
            <id>kapt</id>
            <goals>
                <goal>kapt</goal>
            </goals>
            <configuration>
                <sourceDirs>
                    <sourceDir>src/main/kotlin</sourceDir>
                </sourceDirs>
                <annotationProcessorPaths>
                    <annotationProcessorPath>
                        <groupId>io.arrow-kt</groupId>
                        <artifactId>arrow-meta</artifactId>
                        <version>${arrow.version}</version>
                    </annotationProcessorPath>
                </annotationProcessorPaths>
            </configuration>
        </execution>
        <execution>
            <id>compile</id>
            <phase>compile</phase>
            <goals>
                <goal>compile</goal>
            </goals>
            <configuration>
                <sourceDirs>
                    <sourceDir>src/main/kotlin</sourceDir>
                </sourceDirs>
            </configuration>
        </execution>
        <execution>
            <id>test-compile</id>
            <phase>test-compile</phase>
            <goals>
                <goal>test-compile</goal>
            </goals>
        </execution>
    </executions>
</plugin>

BOM file

To avoid specifying the Arrow version for every dependency, a BOM file is available:

  <dependencyManagement>
    <dependencies>
      <dependency>
        <groupId>io.arrow-kt</groupId>
        <artifactId>arrow-stack</artifactId>
        <version>${arrow.version}</version>
        <type>pom</type>
        <scope>import</scope>
      </dependency>
    </dependencies>
  </dependencyManagement>
  <dependencies>
    ...
  </dependencies>

Next development version

If you want to try the latest features, replace 0.13.2 with 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT and add this repository:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        ...
        maven { url "https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/" }
    }
}
