A brilliant little package
It has taken me a while to properly appreciate
data-default, but I am getting there. It is deceptively simple.
[Beware, Haddocks don’t always deal gracefully with packages re-exporting things from other packages. In this case the
Default class is actually defined in
data-default-class where you can see its definition clearly, unlike in
Default allows you to nominate defaults for your types, allowing them to be deployed with the drop of a
def. If your type
Foo supports generics you can let the class work out the default,
and use it in situations where a
Foo is needed,
This works best where you have a type with an obvious canonical value, such as a configuration with an obvious default.
Got an issue with any of this? Please share or drop me a line (see below).
