Great sample code! But it compiles with an error on line 75.
Could not find an overload for '>>=' that accepts the supplied arguments.

Can you provide the code for this operator function? Thanks.

Never mind. I didn't read the accompanying blog post that well enough. The answer is in the required code from the JSON article. See http://chris.eidhof.nl/posts/json-parsing-in-swift.html
Although I had to change the operator from >>= to >>>=.

Thanks 😄

@chriseidhof: Would it be possible to put a license on this? I'd like to use a substantial part of it for a project :)

@chriseidhof
Throws an error in line 77: let f = { decodeJSON($0) >>= parse }
"Left side of mutating operator isn't mutable: 'decodeJSON' returns an immutable value". Tried making it return a mutable value though, then it complained it couldn't apply binary operation between NSData -> JSONDictionary? and JSONDictionary? -> _

@chriseidhof I adapted your library to Swift 2.2. Feel free to comment on the adaptation!
