Ethereum API for Haskell https://github.com/airalab/hs-web3#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.

$ git clone https://github.com/airalab/hs-web3 && cd hs-web3
$ stack setup
$ stack ghci

This library runs only paired with geth or parity Ethereum node, please start node first before using the library.

Web3 monad

Any Ethereum node communication wrapped with Web3 monadic type.

> :t web3_clientVersion
web3_clientVersion :: Provider a => Web3 a Text

To run this computation used runWeb3' or runWeb3 functions.

> runWeb3 web3_clientVersion
Right "Parity//v1.4.5-beta-a028d04-20161126/x86_64-linux-gnu/rustc1.13.0"

Function runWeb3 use default Web3 provider at localhost:8545.

> :t runWeb3
  :: MonadIO m => Web3 DefaultProvider b -> m (Either Web3Error b)

TemplateHaskell generator

Quasiquotation is used to parse contract ABI or load from JSON file. TemplateHaskell driven Haskell contract API generator can automatical create instances for Event and Method typeclasses and function helpers.

> :set -XQuasiQuotes
> putStr [abiFrom|data/sample.json|]
                0x03de48b3 runA1()
                0x90126c7a runA2(string,uint256)

See example of usage.

import Data.Text (unpack)
import Text.Printf


main :: IO ()
main = do
    Right s <- runWeb3 $ do
        n <- name token
        s <- symbol token
        d <- decimals token
        return $ printf "Token %s with symbol %s and decimals %d"
                        (unpack n) (unpack s) d
    putStrLn s
  where token = "0x237D60A8b41aFD2a335305ed458B609D7667D789"
