streaming-benchmarks v0.2.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2018-07-17 // over 3 years ago
    • ➕ Added benchmarks for pure lists
    • ➕ Added benchmarks for pure vector
    • ➕ Added benchmarks for vector monadic streaming library
    • ➕ Added drinkery streaming library
    • 📦 The code is modular now, package specific ops for each benchmarked package are contained in a separate own module. It is much easier to add a new package now.
    • The benchmarking code now works for IO as well as Identity monad.
    • 👉 Used the same stream generation method for all libraries for a fair comparison.
    • 👉 Use a monadic API (unfoldrM) for generating the stream.
    • conduit-1.3.0 has a performance issue with mapM_. Avoided using mapM_ and used sinkNull instead. See This workaround improves the performance of all conduit benchmarks that drain the stream.
    • pipes also had an issue similar to that of conduit. The code was using mapM_ which was very inefficient, used discard instead and got a significant boost in numbers.
