    Quickcheck is a Haskell testing library which allows the programmer to write propositions about how a function should behave, and the library will try to find cases which falsify the proposition.

    If my understanding is correct, it can't "prove" any properties, only disprove them.

    For concretely proving properties of a program, you would need something like Idris's dependent type system, where you can prove that a function always returns a sorted list, for example.

    I've had some PRs open on hedgehog for one and two months respectively. It looks like the maintainer isn't currently very active, which is fair enough. This isn't about criticizing him, and I'm not trying to take over the repo.

    Testing libraries like hedgehog often run tests in parallel, so you may find related issues to work on.

    Haskell has QuickCheck and Hedgehog, and dotnet has both as well. F# is favored, but there's C# interop.
