Adding a new kind of pure computation to an applicative functor.

# Documentation

Applicative functor formed by adding pure computations to a given applicative functor.

Alternative f => Alternative (Lift f) | A combination is |

Functor f => Functor (Lift f) | |

Applicative f => Applicative (Lift f) | A combination is |

Foldable f => Foldable (Lift f) | |

Traversable f => Traversable (Lift f) |

unLift :: Applicative f => Lift f a -> f a Source

Projection to the other functor.

# Collecting errors

type Errors e = Lift (Constant e) Source

An applicative functor that collects a monoid (e.g. lists) of errors.
A sequence of computations fails if any of its components do, but
unlike monads made with `ErrorT`

from Control.Monad.Trans.Error,
these computations continue after an error, collecting all the errors.
