    Make your own functions safer by lifting them into a Maybe context

    javascriptJavaScript

    You probably have functions that aren’t equipped to accept a Maybe as an argument. And in most cases, altering functions to accept a specific container type isn’t desirable. You could use map, passing in your function, or you could “lift” your function into a Maybe context. In this lesson, we’ll look at how we can get a function that accepts raw values to work with our Maybe container without the need to modify the original function or the input values.
