gott is a Railway Oriented Programming library for Go.

In ROP a program is a chain of functions wrapped in blocks resembling track switches. It’s a simplification of an Either monad.

gott provides N types of blocks:

* Bind, which wraps a function that continues on the happy track or switches to the sad track

>------+-------->
\
\
>---------+----->

* Map, which wraps a function that will alwayc continue on the happy track

>--------------->
>--------------->

* Tee, which wraps a function performing side effects and can switch to the sad track

_
|
>--------++----->
\
\
>------------+-->

* SafeTee, which is to Tee what Map is to Bind

_
|
>--------+------>
>--------------->

* Recover, which wraps a function that tries to return to the happy Path

>--------+------>
/
/
>-----+--------->

* Catch, which switches to the sad track in case of a panic
* Handle, which does different things depending on which track the processing is

== Usage

Provided functions are methods of `R[T any]` generic and return `R[T]` so that they can be chained.

Usage can be seen in tests, the simplest being

import (
"apiote.xyz/p/gott/v2"
)
func divide5(by int) (int, error) {
if by == 0 {
return by, errors.New("divideByZero")
} else {
return 5 / by, nil
}
}
func main() {
r := R[int]{S: 5}.Bind(divide5)
// r.S == 1; r.E == nil
}
