Universal Functions - Part 1

There are two types of basic smart functions in Fluree:

  • Universal Functions
  • Context-Dependent Functions

As the names imply, universal functions can be used anywhere that smart functions can be used. Context-dependent functions are functions that retrieve certain values, and different functions are valid in different contexts.

Language#

Clojure is the only language that is currently supported for writing smart functions, although we intend to expand the available languages.

Only a subset of Clojure functions, as well as several built-in custom functions (written using Clojure), are allowed to be used in smart functions.

Function List#

Linked is the full list of all available universal functions.

Function code examples:

(+ 12 5)                                ;; 17(inc 10)                                ;; 11(== 1 1)                                ;; true(+ 12 (max 1 2 3))              ;; 15(if-else (== 1 1) "a" "b")   ;; "a"
