We’re excited to announce the launch of the new website for the Arrow family of libraries designed for functional programming in Kotlin. The launch of this website signifies not only the massive growth of this set of open source tools in 2019 but the projected expansion planned for 2020 and beyond.
A New UI
The site has been completely revamped with a sleek new UI. The minimalist design provides a clean layout, creating improved organization overall. This includes better organization of Arrow documentation, which is now just a click away in the sidebar.
Arrow is currently divided into four components, but as we make more features available in the future, additional modules will be added. This is something we’re looking for the community’s help with! If you have ideas that you believe would improve Arrow’s mission and would be a good fit, please join us.
For now, the website clearly identifies Arrow’s available modules, making it easier than ever to quickly access information about each of the following:
Arrow Core - Arrow is the functional companion to Kotlin’s Standard Library.
Arrow FX - Arrow FX is a next-generation Typed FP Effects Library built to tame side effectful APIs.
Arrow Optics - Arrow Optics helps by transforming and computing over immutable data models in Kotlin.
Arrow Meta - Arrow Meta is the functional companion to the Kotlin Compiler and its plugin ecosystem.
Also included is the new Arrow Incubator featuring libraries currently in initial development or brainstorming phases. These projects will be promoted to top level libraries as they become ergonomic, stable, and follow the standards of quality we expect under the Arrow umbrella.
New Arrow media section
A new media section has been added to the site, showcasing tutorials, conference presentations, and other Arrow-related content. We’re still in the process of uploading materials to this section, but there’s plenty of content for you to get started with.
Have a talk, training video, blog post, or related materials to add? Don’t hesitate to open a PR!
Special thanks for this undertaking goes to Antonio Mateo, Juan Valencia, Israel Perez, Francisco Díaz, Jetro Cabau, and Jason McClellan.

We’re always looking for additional help, please view the guidelines for contributing and take a look at the help-wanted issues. All levels are welcome and we offer 1:1 mentoring through Arrow’s Slack and Gitter channels.
If you would like to support Arrow, but don’t have the time to invest in contributing, consider picking up some Arrow swag! All proceeds are invested back into advancing the library.
