#Tabbels

A crazy idea about bringing functional programming to Java, in an elegant way

Highly inspired by LUA tables, hence the play on the word Table to Tabbel; this is an attempt to represent this LUA Tables filled with pure functions, which can interact with the ecosystem without having to leave Java.

###GRADLE:

 repositories {
      ...
      maven { url 'https://github.com/FireZenk/maven-repo/raw/master/'}
 }
 dependencies {
   ...
   compile 'org.firezenk:tabbels-core:{last_version}' // for java projects
         compile 'org.firezenk:tabbels-android:{last_version}@aar' // for android projects
 }

###USAGE:

The simplest example in pure Java would be to create a function in a new table:

    final Tabbels λλ = create(
    ).aλ(
     "helloWorld", (self) -> {
         System.out.println("Hello world!");
    }.build();

Here is another simple case for Android based projects:

    // In your Application in order to observe the Activity lifecycle
    Tabbels.register(this);
    final Tabbels λλ = create(
    ).aλ(
     "onCreate", (self, bundle) -> {
         setContentView(R.layout.main_activity);

         final TextView tv = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView);
            tv.setText("Hello world!");
  }
    ).build();

Like a functional language, you can embed and combine functions using the variable self:

    ...
    ).fλ(
     "sum", (self, i1, i2) -> (Integer) i1 + (Integer) i2
    ).fλ(
     "sum2", (self, i1, i2) -> self.fλ("sum", self.fλ("sum", 2, 4), 6)
    ).build();

###COMPOSITION:

Since version 1.3.0, Tabbels provides the possibility to compose tables from other tables. This is especially useful for applying design patterns in the presentation layer and enhance the functionality of our classes from other, simulating multiple inheritance :

   ...
 ).inject(
        new SomePresenter().λλ, new ColorHelper().λλ
    ).build();

###SOME IMPORTANT THINGS:

  • Note the use of or , is a function that returns something while has no return value
  • Remember to call build() at the end of the declaration
  • The implementation of Android is coupled with the life cycle of the activities ( Activity only for now)

###MORE INFO:

Go to sample module

###NEW ON LAST VERSION (1.3.0):

  • Interconnect Tabbels using inject(Tabbels... dependency)
