### #Aff Source

`data Aff :: Row Effect -> Type -> Type`

An `Aff eff a`

is an asynchronous computation with effects `eff`

. The
computation may either error with an exception, or produce a result of
type `a`

. `Aff`

effects are assembled from primitive `Eff`

effects using
`makeAff`

or `liftEff`

.

#### Instances

`Functor (Aff eff)`

`Apply (Aff eff)`

`Applicative (Aff eff)`

`Bind (Aff eff)`

`Monad (Aff eff)`

`(Semigroup a) => Semigroup (Aff eff a)`

`(Monoid a) => Monoid (Aff eff a)`

`Alt (Aff eff)`

`Plus (Aff eff)`

`MonadRec (Aff eff)`

`MonadThrow Error (Aff eff)`

`MonadError Error (Aff eff)`

`MonadEff eff (Aff eff)`

`Lazy (Aff eff a)`

`Parallel (ParAff eff) (Aff eff)`

### #ParAff Source

`data ParAff :: Row Effect -> Type -> Type`

Applicative for running parallel effects. Any `Aff`

can be coerced to a
`ParAff`

and back using the `Parallel`

class.

#### Instances

`Functor (ParAff eff)`

`Apply (ParAff eff)`

Runs effects in parallel, combining their results.

`Applicative (ParAff eff)`

`(Semigroup a) => Semigroup (ParAff eff a)`

`(Monoid a) => Monoid (ParAff eff a)`

`Alt (ParAff eff)`

Races effects in parallel. Returns the first successful result or the first error if all fail with an exception. Losing branches will be cancelled.

`Plus (ParAff e)`

`Alternative (ParAff e)`

`Parallel (ParAff eff) (Aff eff)`

### #Canceler Source

`newtype Canceler eff`

A cancellation effect for actions run via `makeAff`

. If a `Fiber`

is
killed, and an async action is pending, the canceler will be called to
clean it up.

#### Constructors

#### Instances

### #makeAff Source

`makeAff :: forall a eff. ((Either Error a -> Eff eff Unit) -> Eff eff (Canceler eff)) -> Aff eff a`

Constructs an `Aff`

from low-level `Eff`

effects using a callback. A
`Canceler`

effect should be returned to cancel the pending action. The
supplied callback may be invoked only once. Subsequent invocation are
ignored.

### #launchAff_ Source

`launchAff_ :: forall a eff. Aff eff a -> Eff eff Unit`

Forks an `Aff`

from an `Eff`

context, discarding the `Fiber`

.

### #launchSuspendedAff Source

`launchSuspendedAff :: forall a eff. Aff eff a -> Eff eff (Fiber eff a)`

Suspends an `Aff`

from an `Eff`

context, returning the `Fiber`

.

### #suspendAff Source

`suspendAff :: forall a eff. Aff eff a -> Aff eff (Fiber eff a)`

Suspends an `Aff`

from within a parent `Aff`

context, returning the `Fiber`

.
A suspended `Aff`

is not executed until a consumer observes the result
with `joinFiber`

.

### #invincible Source

`invincible :: forall a eff. Aff eff a -> Aff eff a`

Runs an effect such that it cannot be killed.

### #cancelWith Source

`cancelWith :: forall a eff. Aff eff a -> Canceler eff -> Aff eff a`

Attaches a custom `Canceler`

to an action. If the computation is canceled,
then the custom `Canceler`

will be run afterwards.

### #bracket Source

`bracket :: forall b a eff. Aff eff a -> (a -> Aff eff Unit) -> (a -> Aff eff b) -> Aff eff b`

Guarantees resource acquisition and cleanup. The first effect may acquire some resource, while the second will dispose of it. The third effect makes use of the resource. Disposal is always run last, regardless. Neither acquisition nor disposal may be cancelled and are guaranteed to run until they complete.

### #generalBracket Source

`generalBracket :: forall b a eff. Aff eff a -> BracketConditions eff a b -> (a -> Aff eff b) -> Aff eff b`

A general purpose bracket which lets you observe the status of the bracketed action. The bracketed action may have been killed with an exception, thrown an exception, or completed successfully.

### #nonCanceler Source

`nonCanceler :: forall eff. Canceler eff`

A canceler which does not cancel anything.

### #effCanceler Source

`effCanceler :: forall eff. Eff eff Unit -> Canceler eff`

A canceler from an Eff action.

## Re-exports from **Control.**Monad.Eff.Exception

### #Error

`data Error :: Type`

The type of JavaScript errors

#### Instances

`Show Error`

### #message

`message :: Error -> String`

Get the error message from a JavaScript error

### #error

`error :: String -> Error`

Create a JavaScript error, specifying a message

## Re-exports from **Control.**Monad.Error.Class

### #catchError Source

`catchError :: forall e m a. MonadError e m => m a -> (e -> m a) -> m a`

### #throwError Source

`throwError :: forall e m a. MonadThrow e m => e -> m a`

### #try Source

`try :: forall a m e. MonadError e m => m a -> m (Either e a)`

Return `Right`

if the given action succeeds, `Left`

if it throws.

## Re-exports from **Control.**Parallel.Class

### #sequential

`sequential :: forall f m. Parallel f m => f ~> m`

This instance is provided for compatibility.

`Aff`

is always stack-safe within a given fiber. This instance will just result in unnecessary bind overhead.
