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.

A sinatra-ish web framework written in haskell, riding on top of Hack.


Sinatra has a beautiful, simple, elegant syntax, but it's essentially an attempt to bring pattern matching to a language never intended for pattern matching. Why not attempt something similar in a language with not just beautiful pattern matching, but with all the declarative bells and whistles: lazy evaluation, first-class functions, currying, polymorphism?
