API

lift(fn)

decorate fn so it can receive promises as arguments. Return values will be unboxed wherever possible however errors will be caught and boxed with a promise since this means you don't have to handle sync and async errors separately.

var Result = require('result')
var add = lift(function(a, b){ return a + b })
add(1, 2) // => 3
add(Result.wrap(1), 2) // => 3
var one = new Result
var answer = add(one, 2) // => new Result
one.write(1)
answer.value // => 3

cps(fn)

decorate a node function so it can receive Results as arguments and will return a result rather than take a callback as its last argument.

var fs = require('fs')
var readFile = liftCPS(fs.readFile)
readFile('Readme.md').read(function(buf){
  buf // => fs.readFileSync('Readme.md')
})

apply(..., fn)

apply arguments to the last argument

apply(Result.wrap(1), 2, Array) // => [1, 2]

sexpr(fn, ...)

apply rest of args to fn

sexpr(Array, Result.wrap(1), 2) // => [1, 2]
