Haskell Application BlockChain Interface (ABCI) Server Library https://github.com/cwgoes/haskell-abci#readme

Latest on Hackage:

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

Haskell ABCI Server Library

Haskell library for writing Application BlockChain Interface (ABCI) servers. Licensed under BSD 3-clause (see LICENSE).


Available as a library on Hackage.

If you’re using Stack, simply add haskell-abci to the build-depends in your project’s Cabal file.

If you’re using Cabal directly, cabal install haskell-abci should do the trick.

This library exposes a request-response API. Usage is simple:

  1. Import the library
import qualified Network.ABCI as ABCI
  1. Define your application (for more information, see the ABCI application development documentation)

    See the example counter app for a template.

app :: ABCI.Request -> IO ABCI.Response
app = undefined
  1. Specify a host and port on which to bind the ABCI server, or use the defaults
host :: String
host = ABCI.defaultHost

port :: Int
port = ABCI.defaultPort
  1. Launch the server
run :: IO ()
run = ABCI.serve host port app

Development / Testing

You’ll need Stack and a relatively recent version of protobuf.

git clone https://github.com/cwgoes/haskell-abci.git
cd haskell-abci
stack build --install-ghc

Note that src/types.proto is used to generate a Haskell interface file whenever you run stack build.

Optionally, to also install the example counter application (haskell-abci-counter) in ~/.local/bin:

stack install

Once you’ve installed haskell-abci-counter, to run the counter example application with the standard ABCI Golang tests: (note that you’ll need ~/.local/bin on your shell path and Tendermint installed)

git clone https://github.com/tendermint/abci.git
cd abci/tests/test_app
ABCI_APP="haskell-abci-counter" go run ./*.go
