  • is dependent haskell still a thing?

    In practice we will probably have an STG backend for Idris2 before a dependent Haskell, then at least you could link together Haskell and Idris code

    I write an Idris2 backend which compiles to STG, yesterday we achieved to run the HelloWorld using functions from GHC.Base :)

    Ah, the repo also has the slides of the talk, which are a nice first step to video-less content.

    | The Idris language versions have always supported easy and modular code generation. I am working on the Idris-ExtSTG backend closely collaborating with Csaba. The progress can be followed here: . I am going to give a talk about my experiences at BobKonf 2021:

    Nice! Thanks for including a comparison with my package typelevel-rewrite-rules. Since my package indeed struggles with infinite loops introduced by self-triggering rewrite rules, I would like to better understand why your package doesn't suffer from that same problem.

    When writing a typechecker plugin, you can eliminate constraints from the user's program by providing an implementation of the corresponding dictionary. The way you provide that dictionary to ghc is by providing a core expression; for example, this evCast futureDict co expression has type EvTerm, whose first constructor takes an EvExpr, which is a synonym for CoreExpr.

    Until then, I guess we can simply poll. Here's a GitHub Action I wrote today which checks if the latest report for a given package includes a failure:
