This library provides do-syntax and monads for Elixir. It is heavily inspired by Haskell.

Contributing Guidelines

To contribute:

  1. Fork the monad repository on GitHub.

  2. Clone your fork or add the remote if you already have a clone of the repository.

    git clone git@github.com:your_username/monad.git
    # or
    git remote add mine git@github.com:your_username/monad.git
  3. Create a feature branch for your change.

    git checkout -b feature/name-of-your-branch
  4. Make your change and commit. Use a clear and descriptive commit message, see this note.

  5. Push to your fork of the repository and then send a pull-request through GitHub.

    git push mine feature/name-of-your-branch
  6. We will review your patch and merge it into the main repository or send you feedback.

Coding Style

  • Golden rule: just follow the style of the rest of the code.
  • Avoid unneccesary whitespace in expressions with braces and brackets (tuples / lists). Don't write { :ok, a }, write {:ok, a}. Whitespace is allowed in nested expressions if it significantly improves readability, but if things get that complicated prefer to rewrite the expression to be simpler (one spot where that's not always possible is pattern matching).
  • Add documentation to all modules (@moduledoc) and public functions/macro's (@doc). Exception: implementations of callbacks don't need (but may have) documentation, if you leave off the documentation a default will be provided by the documentation generator.
  • In documentation use the first line as a short summary, this will show up in the function/module/whatever overview in the documentation.
  • Line length: limit the numbers of characters per line to 80.
  • Avoid trailing whitespace.

Branching Model

Use Vincent Driessen's branching model (as supported by git-flow, of course you're free to do it by hand).
