  • Experiences with workflow managers implemented in Haskell (funflow, porcupine, bioshake, ?)

    I wasn't satisfied with this and wanted the software to be managed too, so we ended up working on BioNix (https://github.com/PapenfussLab/bionix) which does both pipeline execution and software management. This is nice because it makes everything extremely reproducible and removes a lot of the pain of dealing with setting up software etc at various HPC facilities. The down side is Nix isn't typed, so the typing aspect of bioshake was ported on the back of a ADT implementation in Nix, and at least for my work it has caught a fair few mistakes. Of course this isn't Haskell so it doesn't satisfy your criteria, just though it's worth a mention.
