Scala DSL for currency-related operations

Source code: Scala DSL for money-related operations

This Domain-Specific Language (DSL) lets you perform operations among different currencies, by transparently doing all internal conversions. The conversion map is injected implicitly by the client code.

Usage Example

Here’s a simple usage example:


object Main {

  def main(args: Array[String]): Unit = {

    val conversion: Conversion = Map(
      (GBP, EUR) -> 1.270,
      (EUR, USD) -> 1.268,
      (GBP, USD) -> 1.611

    implicit val converter = Converter(conversion)

    val sumAndConversion1 = 100.001(USD) + 200(EUR) to GBP
    println(s"sumAndConversion1: $sumAndConversion1")

    val sumAndConversion2: Money = 100(USD) + 210.4(EUR) to EUR
    println(s"sumAndConversion2: $sumAndConversion2")

    val sum = 100.001(USD) + 200(EUR)
    val simpleConversion = sum(GBP)
    println(s"simpleConversion: $simpleConversion")

    val sumWithSimpleNumber = 100(USD) + 23.560
    println(s"sumWithSimpleNumber: $sumWithSimpleNumber")

    val multiplicationWithSimpleNumber = 100(USD) * 23
    println(s"multiplicationWithSimpleNumber: $multiplicationWithSimpleNumber")

    val usd = Currency("USD")

    val multiplication = 100(usd) * 23(EUR)
    println(s"multiplication: $multiplication")

    val divisionWithSimpleNumber = 100(USD) / 23
    println(s"divisionWithSimpleNumber: $divisionWithSimpleNumber")

    val comparison = 100(USD) > 90(EUR)
    println(s"100 USD > 90 EUR? $comparison")



As you can see the client code just needs two simple imports and an implicit value of type Converter in order to use the DSL. The operations shown in the previous code are only a few among the available ones. Have a look at the Money class for a complete coverage.
