  • (strongly typed) functional language compilers running in browser
    3 projects | /r/functionalprogramming | 31 Mar 2023
    there're a lot of languages that can target js/wasm these days, some of which are even self-hosting (ghc) and can target browser (ghcjs), a lot are written in haskell which again can target browser but the closest to my request i've found is an old thread of idris supposedely compilable by ghcjs and while there are plenty "run your code in browser (via server compilation)" services i've yet to see a working "running compiler in browser in browser example"
  • What's the current status with packages/libraries on Idris?
    4 projects | /r/Idris | 28 Nov 2021
    So apparently there's a package manager called Inigo, but there are only a few packages in it. There's an idris-hackers group on github, that's linked from the page. None of those libraries appear in Inigo though. So seems that Inigo isn't really a thing people are using.
  • Record dot syntax has been merged

    As of 2013, Idris does not want to even support user defined Unicode operators, for the usual reasons.
