# algebraic-classes: Conversions between algebraic classes and F-algebras.

**This is a package candidate release!** Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below).

Algebraic classes are type classes where all the methods return a value of the same type, which is also the class parameter.
Examples from `base`

are `Num`

and `Monoid`

.

F-algebras are functions `f a -> a`

, where the functor `f`

is called the signature, and the type `a`

the carrier.

This package relates these 2 concepts, and can create conversions between the two using Template Haskell. More specifically, it can generate:

signatures from algebraic classes

instances of algebraic classes from F-algebras.

This is useful because type classes are more commonly used in Haskell than F-algebras, but F-algebras are easier to work with, because they are just functions.
