# The compose-trans package

A version of monad transformers that (a) allows one to convince the type checker that transformer application is a monad, and (b) doesn't need lots of boilerplate to add a new transformer. It's supposed to play nicely with `Control.Monad.Trans`.

In order to make a new transformer (say, `T`) an instance of `TransM` (`TransP`, `TransF`) class, all you have to do is:

define

`instance MonadTrans T`— which you've probably done alreadydefine

`instance Monad m => Monad (T m)`— also something quite common (for`TransP`and`TransF`you'd need another instance for`MonadPlus`and`MonadFix`, respectively).write

`instance Trans T where transMInst = instM`— which is exactly one line of boilerplate. Sorry about that.

After that, you can use your new and shiny transformer in compositions, like `ReaderT Char :. T :. WriterT String` — and such a composition would automagically become a monad transformer.
