JP Moresmau: Using Ansi console for nicer console output in EclipseFP

Planet Haskell - Wed, 12/10/2014 - 10:24am
A little tip from the trenches (-:. I use the Ansi Console plugin in EclipseFP to be able to see a nice color output from my Haskell executable runs.

For example, the Tasty example:

Works also for Yesod applications, etc.

Note that some support for Tasty is being added in EclipseFP 2.6.3, to at least provide some templates for the cabal test-suite section and test modules. I'm not too sure if it's worth to develop a runner for it, since contrary to HTF we won't have a link to the source, so the standard output is probably nice enough.

Happy Haskell Hacking!

Imagine no iteration, It's easy if you try, No state below us, Above us only Y, Imagine all the people, Coding with lambdas... Imagine no mutation It isn't hard to do Nothing to deadlock And no pointers too Imagine all the people Coding in Haskell... You may say I'm no hacker But I'm not the only one I hope someday you'll join us And compsci will be as one Imagine no frustration I wonder if you can No need for state or pointers A world of monads Imagine all the people Programming in peace...

Philip Wadler: How to save US

Planet Haskell - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 11:09pm
A short, inventively presented, video from Lawrence Lessig, making the case that before we can solve all the other problems in the US, the first problem we must solve is to take big money out of politics, and how we can do it via Mayday.

Philip Wadler: SNAPL update

Planet Haskell - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 10:39pm
SNAPL, taking place 3-6 May in Asilomar, now has a publisher. Proceedings will appear in the LIPIcs series published by Dagstuhl. Five pages in ACM style is about eight pages in LIPIcs style, so the SNAPL call for papers has changed the paper length accordingly.

Previously: SNAPL.

Libraries for using regexes on Text

Haskell on Reddit - Tue, 12/09/2014 - 10:29pm

Are there any libraries for using regexes with the Text type that have a friendlier API than text-icu? And for String, which is the preferred regex library?

gtk2hs - Wed, 11/21/2012 - 12:56pm

Thanks to John Lato and Duncan Coutts for the latest bugfix release! The latest packages should be buildable on GHC 7.6, and the cairo package should behave a bit nicer in ghci on Windows. Thanks to all!
