trait Var[+T] extends AnyRef

Trait Var represents a variable. It is a reference cell which is composable: dependent Vars (derived through flatMap) are recomputed automatically when independent variables change -- they implement a form of self-adjusting computation.

Vars are observed, notifying users whenever the variable changes.

Self Type
Var[T]
Note

There are no well-defined error semantics for Var. Vars are computed lazily, and the updating thread will receive any exceptions thrown while computing derived Vars. Note: There is a Java-friendly API for this trait: com.twitter.util.AbstractVar.

,

Vars do not always perform the minimum amount of re-computation.

Abstract Value Members

  1. abstract def observe(depth: Int, obs: Observer[T]): Closable

    Concrete implementations of Var implement observe.

    Concrete implementations of Var implement observe. This is called for each toplevel observe. Depths indicate the relative structural depth of the observation, from the frame of reference of the root call to observe. (Each Var derived via flatMap increases the depth.) Depths are used to order the invocation of update callbacks. This is used to ensure that updates proceed in topological order so that every input variable is fully resolved before recomputing a derived variable.

  5. lazy val changes: Event[T]

    An Event where changes in Var are emitted.

    An Event where changes in Var are emitted. The current value of this Var is emitted synchronously upon subscription.

    All changes to this Var are guaranteed to be published to the Event.

  11. def flatMap[U](f: (T) ⇒ Var[U]): Var[U]

    Create a dependent Var which behaves as f applied to the current value of this Var.

    Create a dependent Var which behaves as f applied to the current value of this Var. FlatMap manages a dynamic dependency graph: the dependent Var is detached and recomputed whenever the outer Var changes, but only if there are any observers. An unobserved Var returned by flatMap will not invoke f
