This represents the Maybe (or Option) monad.

var m = Maybe.From("these pretzels are making me thirsty");
var n = Maybe.Nothing<int>(); 

var x = m.OrElse("yada yada yada"); // yields "these pretzels ..."
var y = n.OrElse(17); // yields 17

See full documentation for Maybe;


This represents an exceptional monad that can be used to construct lazy chains of action and catch blocks.

var result = await Try
	.Do(() => "I will succeed.")
	.ThenAsync(async x => x + " Oh will you?")
	.Then(_ => throw new InvalidOperationException())
	.Catch<InvalidOperationException>(ex => 
        Log.WriteError("Operation did not succeed");
        return "failed";

See full documentation for Try;


This represents the functional unit type.

var u = default(Unit);
