Step adapters

step adds operations to your transaction that already return an Either object. If you have to work with other types of operations, you can use an alternative step adapter. Step adapters can wrap the output of your operations to make them easier to integrate into a transaction. The following adapters are available:

  • map – any output is considered successful and returned as Right(output)
  • try – the operation may raise an exception in an error case. This is caught and returned as Left(exception). The output is otherwise returned as Right(output).
  • tee – the operation interacts with some external system and has no meaningful output. The original input is passed through and returned as Right(input).

These step adapters in use look like this:

class CreateUser
  include Dry::Transaction(container: Container)

  map :process
  try :validate, catch: ValidationError
  tee :persist
