iff<T> function

T iff <T>(
  1. bool statement,
  2. T branch(
      )
    )

    The iff method can be used as a normal if statement, or as an expression, i.e. it returns a value.

    The iff method can replace complex ternary operators so your code becomes more readable:

    // Traditional usage
    final x = a < b ? a : a == b ? 0 : b;
    
    // iff usage
    final x = iff(a < b, () {
      return a;
    }).elseIf(a == b, () {
      return 0;
    }).orElse(() {
      return b;
    });
    

    If you are using the iff method as an expression(returning its value or assigning it to a variable), then the expression is required to make use of the `OrElse method.

    Note: If a null is returned, it will assume it has to call the ElseIf or OrElse.

    Implementation

    T iff<T>(bool statement, T Function() branch) {
      if (statement) {
        return branch();
      }
      return null;
    }
