Why?

Swift's Optional is pretty awesome, but it can always get better. This repository is an humble attempt to add some utility methods to it.

Operators

filter: (Wrapped -> Bool) -> Optional<Wrapped>

let number: Int? = 3

let biggerThan2 = number.filter { $0 > 2 } // .Some(3)

let biggerThan3 = number.filter { $0 > 3 } // .None

mapNil: (Void -> Wrapped) -> Optional<Wrapped>

let number: Int? = 3
number.mapNil { 2 } // .Some(3)

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
nilledNumber.mapNil { 2 } // .Some(2)

flatMapNil: (Void -> Optional<Wrapped>) -> Optional<Wrapped>

let number: Int? = 3
number.flatMapNil { .Some(2) } // .Some(3)

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
nilledNumber.flatMapNil { .Some(2) } // .Some(2)

then: (Wrapped -> Void) -> Void (similar to [T]'s forEach)

let number: Int? = 3
number.then { print($0) } // prints "3"

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
nilledNumber.then { print($0) } // print won't be called

maybe: U -> (Wrapped -> U) -> U (similar to Haskell's maybe)

let number: Int? = 3
number.maybe(100) { $0 + 1 } // 4

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
nilledNumber.maybe(100) { $0 + 1 } // 100

onSome: (Wrapped -> Void) -> Optional<Wrapped> (injects a side effect in the .Some branch)

let number: Int? = 3
let sameNumber = number.onSome { print($0) } // prints "3" & returns .Some(3)

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
let sameNilledNumber = nilledNumber.onSome { print($0) } // .None

onNone: (Void -> Void) -> Optional<Wrapped> (injects a side effect in the .None branch)

let number: Int? = 3
let sameNumber = number.onNone { print("Hello World") } // .Some(3)

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
let sameNilledNumber = nilledNumber.onNone { print("Hello World") } // prints "Hello World" & returns .None

isSome: Bool

let number: Int? = 3
let isSome = number.isSome // true

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
let isSome = nilledNumber.isSome // false

isNone: Bool

let number: Int? = 3
let isSome = number.isNone // false

let nilledNumber: Int? = nil
let isSome = nilledNumber.isNone // true
