What is it?

Simple optional types with basic helpers and converters

  • Maybe<T> value or nothing
  • Try<T> value or error
  • Either<TLeft, TRight> value either value

New in 3.0

For version 3.0 this lib was completely rewriten with some breaking changes

  • All types are now class instead of struct
  • Remove some logically obscure methods
    • IComparable implementation (problems with comparing null and empty item)
    • Type cast operators (unused)
    • Try.SelectOrDefault and Try.ValueOrDefault (implicitly hides error, can be replased with Try.AsMaybe)
  • Async extensions completely rewriten using ValueTask and moved to separate package
