Fltkhs - A Haskell Binding to the FLTK GUI Library

Fltkhs aims to be a complete Haskell binding to the FLTK GUI library.

While the current recommended version of FLTK is 1.3.4, the previous version 1.3.3. is also supported since some Linux distributions haven't upgraded yet.

Quick Install

Linux, *BSD and OSX

Installing FLTK from source (vs. package mangers) is recommended. Package managers sometimes put headers and libraries in unexpected places causing fltkhs compilation failures. On OSX the brew package for the current stable version of FLTK is broken. Furthermore some Linux distributions only ship the shared libraries which means that executables are less portable. Compiling from source is pretty quick and painless and fixes these problems.

Install FLTK-1.3.4-1 from source:

  > wget http://fltk.org/pub/fltk/1.3.4/fltk-1.3.4-1-source.tar.gz
  > tar -zxf fltk-1.3.4-1-source.tar.gz
  > cd fltk-1.3.4-1
  > ./configure --enable-gl --enable-shared --enable-localjpeg --enable-localzlib --enable-localpng
  > make
  > sudo make install
  > fltk-config --version

Build the FLTKHS skeleton project:

  > brew install autoconf # Only on OSX
  > git clone http://github.com/deech/fltkhs-hello-world
  > cd fltkhs-hello-world
  > stack install
  # About 6-8 minutes passes ...
  > stack exec fltkhs-hello-world
