# Re: No transducer variant of partition?

```Not a rational for why there's no partition transducer in core but I have a
partition transducer in this lib (https://github.com/cgrand/xforms).```
```
=> (sequence (x/partition 3) (range 8))
([0 1 2] [3 4 5])
=> (sequence (x/partition 3 2) (range 8))
([0 1 2] [2 3 4] [4 5 6])
=> (sequence (x/partition 3 2 "padding") (range 8))
([0 1 2] [2 3 4] [4 5 6] [6 7 \p])

Additionally when the last argument is a function it's considered to be a
transducer for each partition.
=> (sequence (x/partition 3 (x/reduce +)) (range 8))
(3 12)

And you can get fancy:
=> (sequence (x/partition 3 (x/transjuxt {:sum (x/reduce +)
:avg (x/reduce x/avg)
:items (x/into [])})) (range 8))
({:sum 3, :avg 1, :items [0 1 2]} {:sum 12, :avg 4, :items [3 4 5]})
