A Fully Functional, Fully Functional Webapp

September 7, 2017

Last Tuesday I gave a 30 minute talk about building and packaging a webapp using functional-programming tools at the Web Zürich September Session. It’s a short introduction to using Haskell’s servant and reflex libraries for writing a webapp (using GHC and GHCJS). The webapp is packaged with the Nix package manager. It was a nice adventure discovering about reflex, servant-reflex and Nix’ quirks… big thanks to zimbatm for helping out.

The (documented) source code, the slides and the video are available online.

Like Haskell and Nix? Here's more on the topic:
