What are some well regarded projects in the Haskell community?

Haskell on Reddit - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 7:32am

When learning a new language or system I always find that it's best to do far more reading than writing in order to get a feel for the right approach and conventions. I was wondering if there is an opinion about what are some very well written projects that could be studied.

tl;dr What are some examples of beautiful Haskell?

Why is Aeson's withObject in continuation passing style?

Haskell on Reddit - Fri, 11/21/2014 - 7:06am

The type of Aeson's withObject uses continuation passing style

withObject :: String -> (Object -> Parser a) -> Value -> Parser a

And similarly for withText, withArray, ... . It seems to me that String -> Value -> Parser Object (available as \s -> withObject s return) would be more useful.

Why is withObject given this type? Have a missed something and the CPS version is easier to use for some reason?

I have no idea what I'm doing

Haskell on Reddit - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 9:45pm

I have skimmed programming languages such as c/c++, php, JavaScript/node and I am trying to find which language is for me. Though I have no idea where to start with haskell, I cannot find any tutorial suitable for me (fyi I am a complete newbie to programming). Can someone help me figure out this cabal thing or at least point me to a haskell tutorial that is for complete newbies like me. thx

Sent an email to github about regressed Haskell highlighting

Haskell on Reddit - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 4:37pm

Hello all! I'm just putting this up here so that others don't need to go through the effort of reporting it.

You may have noticed that GitHub's highlighting of Haskell recently went quite precipitously downhill. Here's my feedback on it, which I've submitted to support:
