    If you want to make a simple desktop GUI, fltkhs — which binds to the FLTK library — is a good bet, as it's the easiest to install of all the Haskell desktop GUI libraries (even on Windows!). Unfortunately, the FLTK library doesn't create the prettiest GUIs in the world (e.g. see the GitHub page). If you care about such things, the author has also released the fltkhs-themes library, which provides a set of widgets with a much nicer style - see the GitHub page for a showcase.
