  • Most Influential Functional Pearls since 2000?

    There is a quite comprehensive implementation of these ideas in compdata. Even if I don't use it (the paper or the library) directly, it builds on a quite natural idea (data types are initial algebras of functors, and functors compose) so it's nice to have a catchy name for it, "à la carte". A couple of papers have borrowed that phrase in their title as an allusion to that pearl.
