How To Perform Operations on ZIO Fibers

Reading Time: 3 minutes In this blog post, we will discuss ZIO fibers and how we can use them. We will also get a quick overview of operations on ZIO fibers. Concurrency in ZIO ZIO is a highly concurrent framework powered by fibers, which are lightweight virtual threads that enable huge scalability when compared to threads, reinforced with resource-safe cancellation, which supports several features in ZIO. This robust concurrency Continue Reading

How to write unit test in Scala ZIO

Reading Time: 3 minutes ZIO is a Scala library for creating asynchronous, concurrent, and fault-tolerant applications. It is based on the concept of “effects” and provides a powerful and flexible way to express and compose computations that may have side effects, such as reading from a file, writing to a database, or making an HTTP request. ZIO offers a full-featured ecosystem for building applications, including libraries for common tasks Continue Reading

What are Zio Effect Constructors?

Reading Time: 3 minutes In this blog post, we will discuss about ZIO effect constructors and how we can use them. Then we’ll take a look at Effect constructors for pure computations and side-effecting computations. Zio Effect Constructors A functional effect is a template for a concurrent workflow. The template which is mostly descriptive in nature, used to test for any side effects. Such as database interaction, logging, data Continue Reading

How to Compose Layers in Zio

Reading Time: 5 minutes Introduction According to ZIO documentation, we know ZIO is a library for asynchronous and concurrent programming that promotes pure functional programming. The core of the ZIO library provides a powerful effect type ZIO inspired by Haskell’s IO monad. The value of this type doesn’t do anything itself. It is just a description of something that should be done.ZIO runtime system is responsible for actually doing what is Continue Reading

Composing and Chaining Effects together in ZIO

Reading Time: 3 minutes Introduction to ZIO ZIO is a library for asynchronous and concurrent programming that is based on pure functional programming. It combined with Scala help us to develop applications that are purely functional, asynchronous, type-safe, resilient, and testable. At the core of ZIO is ZIO data type which is defined as: ZIO is lazy! The difference between ZIO and procedural programming is quite straightforward. In the Continue Reading
