  • Implementing a LLVM Micro C compiler in Haskell
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 4 Jun 2021
    This is amazing. I tried following Stephen Diehl's JIT compiler in LLVM tutorial[0] a few years ago but it was already outdated (the llvm-hs library changed quite a bit), and subsequent web searches didn't turn up much.

    For those interested in tutorials like this, I'd also recommend a very literate Haskell compiler for the PCF language to C[1], which is essentially lambda calculus with some primitives.

    If you mean installing Dhall's dependencies (https://github.com/dhall-lang/dhall-haskell/blob/master/dhal...), those aren't too crazy, but they're definitely not all "beginner level". Template Haskell in particular is quite heavyweight.

    Ok, lets be specific. Lets write a comment to explain this function:

  • Nix: An idea whose time has come

    I haven't tried it but apparently you can compile to Nix from Dhall:

    > You can use this compiler to program Nix using the Dhall language. This package targets people who wish Nix had a type system.

    If the problem is the syntax and people wants some other format that compiles to nix, there's dhall

    https://www.haskellforall.com/2017/01/typed-nix-programming-...

    Dhall is a generic config language with some programming capabilities (but not turing complete) that can compile to json, yaml, and other formats, like in this instance nix.

  • Google Summer of Code Summary: Dhall bindings to CSV
    2 projects | dev.to | 21 Aug 2021
    For my GSoC project, I built from scratch the dhall-csv package on the Dhall Haskell implementation Github Repository. Said package provides two executables, dhall-to-csv (which converts Dhall files into CSV files) and csv-to-dhall (which converts CSV files into Dhall files). It also provides Haskell libraries with the functions that translate bidirectionally between Dhall and CSV.

    > If you add constraints (like not being able to feed the program to itself as is done in the halting problem and not allowing unbounded loops) then it is possible to determine if a program will terminate or not.

    Dhall is a good example - https://github.com/dhall-lang/dhall-haskell .

    That just seems like an even greater nightmare to me. Soon you would have to learn to read and understand a custom program in a Turing-complete language for each and every installation.

    The proper solution is a DSL, just a better DSl. Or perhaps a DSL embedded in something like dhall <https://dhall-lang.org/>, but definitely not a general-purpose programming language.
