Traits in Julia


Recently I learned about SimpleTraits.jl by @mauro3. Are there any plans to support traits in Julia Base?

Traits are very useful!

Is there a Julian way to combine types generically or a design pattern that achieves the goal?


So, the answer is “yes, but not just now”. (Unless you implement them.)


That is awesome, thanks for the link.


Although mentioning Julia only once here’s a presentation that I believe may help clarifying this important yet tricky design aspect.
