Miso is a small “isomorphicHaskell front-end framework featuring a virtual-dom, diffing / patching algorithm, event delegation, event batching, SVG, Server-sent events, Websockets, type-safe servant-style routing and an extensible Subscription-based subsystem. Inspired by Elm, Redux and Bobril. Miso is pure by default, but side effects (like XHR) can be introduced into the system via the Effect data type. Miso makes heavy use of the GHCJS FFI and therefore has minimal dependencies.

Sample application

-- | Haskell language pragma
{-# LANGUAGE RecordWildCards #-}

-- | Haskell module declaration
module Main where

-- | Miso framework import
import Miso

-- | Type synonym for an application model
type Model = Int

-- | Sum type for application events
data Action
  = AddOne
  | SubtractOne
  | NoOp
  | SayHelloWorld
  deriving (Show, Eq)

-- | Entry point for a miso application
main :: IO ()
main = startApp App {..}
  where
    initialAction = SayHelloWorld -- initial action to be executed on application load
    model  = 0   		  -- initial model
    update = updateModel	  -- update function
    view   = viewModel		  -- view function
    events = defaultEvents	  -- default delegated events
    subs   = []			  -- empty subscription list

-- | Updates model, optionally introduces side effects
updateModel :: Action -> Model -> Effect Model Action
updateModel AddOne m = noEff (m + 1)
updateModel SubtractOne m = noEff (m - 1)
updateModel NoOp m = noEff m
updateModel SayHelloWorld m = m <# do
  putStrLn "Hello World" >> pure NoOp

-- | Constructs a virtual DOM from a model
viewModel :: Model -> View Action
viewModel x = div_ [] [
   button_ [ onClick AddOne ] [ text "+" ]
 , text (show x)
 , button_ [ onClick SubtractOne ] [ text "-" ]
 ]

Building examples

The easiest way to build the examples is with the nix package manager

git clone https://github.com/dmjio/miso && cd miso && nix-build

This will build all examples and documentation into a folder named result

➜  miso git:(master) ✗ tree result -d
