    when you already know how to compile and run single-module interactive console programs, it takes about a day to understand basics of Cabal, and about a week to learn about input parsing and output formatting. Do you need CLI args? Use optparse-applicative. Env vars? Use envy. JSON? Use aeson. Don't think about performance and/or API conventions, that's not what you should be concerned of at this point, as you are just learning to compose things together from indivdual parts.
