# Monoid actions

Type class for monoid actions, where monoidal values of type `m`

"act" on values of another type `s`

. Instances are required to
satisfy the laws

act mempty = id

act (m1 `

`mappend`

` m2) = act m1 . act m2

Additionally, if the type `s`

has any algebraic structure, ```
act
m
```

should be a homomorphism. For example, if `s`

is also a
monoid we should have `act m mempty = mempty`

and ```
act m (s1
`
```

.
`mappend`

` s2) = (act m s1) ``mappend`

` (act m s2)

By default, `act = const id`

, so for a monoidal type `M`

which
should have no action on anything, it suffices to write

instance Action M s

with no method implementations.

Action Name a | Names don't act on anything else. |

Action Nil l | |

Action Name (NameMap v) | A name acts on a name map by qualifying every name in it. |

Action m n => Action (Forgetful m) n | |

Action m n => Action (Split m) n | By default, the action of a split monoid is the same as for the underlying monoid, as if the split were removed. |

(v ~ V a, HasLinearMap v, Transformable a) => Action (Transformation v) a | Transformations can act on transformable things. |

Action (Style v) m | Styles have no action on other monoids. |

Monoid a => Action (SM a) Nil | |

(Action a a', Action (SM a) l) => Action (SM a) (::: a' l) | |

(Action m r, Action n r) => Action (:+: m n) r | Coproducts act on other things by having each of the components act individually. |

(Action m n, Foldable f, Functor f, Monoid n) => Action (AM f m) n | An applicative monoid acts on a value of a monoidal type by having each element in the structure act on the value independently, and then folding the resulting structure. |

(Monoid a, Action (SM a) l2, Action l1 l2) => Action (::: a l1) l2 |

# Split monoids

Sometimes we want to accumulate values from some monoid, but have
the ability to introduce a "split" which separates values on
either side. For example, this is used when accumulating
transformations to be applied to primitive diagrams: the `freeze`

operation introduces a split, since only transformations occurring
outside the freeze should be applied to attributes.

A value of type `Split m`

is either a single `m`

, or a pair of
`m`

's separated by a divider.

split :: Monoid m => Split mSource

A convenient name for `mempty :| mempty`

, so `a <> split <> b == a :| b`

.

# Forgetful monoids

Sometimes we want to be able to forget some information. In
particular, we can introduce special `Forgetful`

values which cause
anything to their right to be forgotten.

A value of type `Forgetful m`

is either a "normal" value of
type `m`

, which combines normally with other normal values, or a
"forgetful" value, which combines normally with other values to
its left but discards values combined on the right. Also, when
combining a forgetful value with a normal one the result is
always forgetful.

Functor Forgetful | |

Monoid m => Monoid (Forgetful m) | If |

Transformable m => Transformable (Forgetful m) | |

Action m n => Action (Forgetful m) n |

forget :: Monoid m => Forgetful mSource

A convenient name for `Forgetful mempty`

, so ```
a <> forget <>
b == Forgetful a
```

.

# Applicative monoids

A wrapper for an `Applicative`

structure containing a monoid.
Such structures have a `Monoid`

instance based on "idiomatic"
application of `mappend`

within the `Applicative`

context.
`instance Monoid m => Monoid (e -> m)`

is one well-known special
case. (However, the standard `Monoid`

instance for `Maybe`

is
*not* an instance of this pattern; nor is the standard instance
for lists.)

AM (f m) |

Functor f => Functor (AM f) | |

Applicative f => Applicative (AM f) | |

(Applicative f, Monoid m) => Monoid (AM f m) | |

(Action m n, Foldable f, Functor f, Monoid n) => Action (AM f m) n | An applicative monoid acts on a value of a monoidal type by having each element in the structure act on the value independently, and then folding the resulting structure. |

inAM2 :: (f m -> f m -> f m) -> AM f m -> AM f m -> AM f mSource

Apply a binary function inside an `AM`

newtype wrapper.

# Coproduct monoid

`m :+: n`

is the coproduct of monoids `m`

and `n`

. Values of
type `m :+: n`

consist of alternating lists of `m`

and `n`

values. The empty list is the identity, and composition is list
concatenation, with appropriate combining of adjacent elements
when possible.

killL :: Monoid n => (m :+: n) -> nSource

`killL`

takes a value in a coproduct monoid and sends all the
values from the left monoid to the identity.

killR :: Monoid m => (m :+: n) -> mSource

`killR`

takes a value in a coproduct monoid and sends all the
values from the right monoid to the identity.

untangle :: (Action m n, Monoid m, Monoid n) => (m :+: n) -> (m, n)Source

Take a value from a coproduct monoid where the left monoid has an action on the right, and "untangle" it into a pair of values. In particular,

m1 <> n1 <> m2 <> n2 <> m3 <> n3 <> ...

is sent to

(m1 <> m2 <> m3 <> ..., (act m1 n1) <> (act (m1 <> m2) n2) <> (act (m1 <> m2 <> m3) n3) <> ...)

That is, before combining `n`

values, every `n`

value is acted on
by all the `m`

values to its left.
