FromFuture

FromFuture

FromFuture is a typeclass to convert scala.concurrent.Future to an effect, F[_]. So if there are some APIs returning Future, it can be converted to F[_].

There are three FromFuture instances available.

  • FromFuture for cats.effect.IO
  • FromFuture for scala.concurrent.Future
  • FromFuture for cats.Id
trait FromFuture[F[_]] {
def toEffect[A](future: => Future[A]): F[A]
}
