isSymbol :: a → Boolean

Evaluates whether the given value is of type Symbol

import isSymbol from 'deep-waters/isSymbol';

const symbol = Symbol('foo');

isSymbol(symbol); // → true

isSymbol('foo'); // → false

isSymbol, like any other type validator, is mostly used in composed validators:

import isString from 'deep-waters/isString';
import matchesPattern from 'deep-waters/matchesPattern';

const isEmail = compose(

isSymbol is built on top of ofClass validator and rely on Object.prototype.toString to check on the received value type in order to avoid typeof weird behaviours and encouraging a runtime strict type validation.
