I would like to propose that Transducers be considered for addition to the Swift core.

"Transducers are a powerful and composable way to build algorithmic transformations that you can reuse in many contexts…"

There are ways to build them w/out any language modification but they are not as efficient as alternative expressions.
Here are some example implementations to give you an idea.


I look forward to your thoughts and comments.
