cats-time

Build Status Maven Central

Instances for Cats Typeclasses for Java 8 Time. Similar to the encoding that are offered in Circe and Cormorant.

Time is a pain to deal with reasonably. So tread with caution.

Quick Start

To use cats-time in an existing SBT project with Scala 2.11 or a later version, add the following dependencies to your build.sbt depending on your needs:

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "org.typelevel" %% "cats-time"     % "0.5.1"
)

Examples

First lets start with some imports.

import org.typelevel.cats.time._
import cats.syntax.all._
import java.time._

Then we can display the Show instances.
