This library is intended to be a high level API for the teardown library; it provides a high level monad interface that helps composition of resource allocation/teardown in a safe and reliable way.
Differences with ResourceT
The resourcet library provides a monad transformer that keeps track of allocated resources at runtime making sure that if an exception happens or the block of execution finishes, the resources allocated are cleaned up.
The componentm library on the other hand, does not run as a Monad transformer, but rather it gets called at the very beginning of your application, it builds the environment needed by your application environment to work (e.g. Layer 1), and provides helper bracket style functions that cleanup all allocated resources in the right order when your application terminates either normally or with an error.
This library is intended to be minimal, providing a few functions that work reliably among many different kind of projects. If you want to contribute, Pull Request are very welcome! Please try to follow these simple rules:
