Default instances for (lazy and strict) Text and Text Builder.

Latest on Hackage:0.0.1

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

Default instances for types defined in [text][] package:

instance Default Strict.Text where
    def = Strict.Text.empty

    def = Lazy.Text.empty

Following instances are provided only for [text][] >=0.8, since that it the version that introduced Builder:
