Inspired by PowerShell, two extension methods that will simplify your code, Pipe and PipeWith

Package manager: Install-Package Pipe4Net

.NET CLI: dotnet add package Pipe4Net

var result = IncrementA(IncrementB(IncrementC(1)))


var pipedResult2 = IncrementC(1).Pipe(IncrementB).Pipe(IncrementA);

You will find another goodie in there , an Option<T> monad in case you need it.

The code is pretty simple, i encourage you to play and extend it by your own needs

public static class PipeIt
    public static void PipeWith<T>(this T obj, Action<T> action) => action(obj);
    public static T Pipe<T>(this T obj, Func<T, T> func) => func(obj);

    public static Option<TR> Pipe<T,TR>(this T obj, Func<T, Option<TR>> func) => func(obj);

This is the main reason why this package exists. Look at the other tests also they are pretty intuitive

    public void Should_Have_Same_Result_When_Piped()
        var result = IncrementA(IncrementB(IncrementC(1)));

        var pipedResult = 1.Pipe(IncrementC).Pipe(IncrementB).Pipe(IncrementC);


        var pipedResult2 = IncrementC(1).Pipe(IncrementB).Pipe(IncrementA);

        Assert.Equal(result, pipedResult2);

    private int IncrementA(int val) => val++;

    private int IncrementB(int val) => val++;

    private int IncrementC(int val) => val++;

The test above perfectly represents what i want to achieve with this nuget package, i have reading code from right to left, or naming temporary variables, it just one of those things that bothers me in programming, and i think this way or writing code is more elegant:

var result = IncrementA(IncrementB(IncrementC(1))) becomes var pipedResult2 = IncrementC(1).Pipe(IncrementB).Pipe(IncrementA);
