The library provides curried functions -- they're like regular functions when the argument list is complete. However, if there are arguments missing, the result is another function that expects the remaining ones. This defers the actual call until all data is available, and allows partial contextualization across sections of code. Ramda also offers a mechanism to turn regular functions into curried versions.

Is for a paradigm known as "Functional Reactive Programming" For example, if you had a list and you want to sum it, you would use something called fold or reduce. Except that in Bacon, you need to generate a new Observable, use result = Observable.fold on it, then watch the result, then insert the list. After which, you would have to ignore all values except the last one. See More
