    FWIW, there are quite a few libraries on Hackage implementing the infinite Stream type. When I looked in to this last year, u/edwardkmett's streams was the only one that seemed to be maintained.

What are some alternatives?

data-lens - Haskell 98 Lenses

type-iso - Expresses isomorphic and injective relations between types.

msgpack - Haskell implementation of MessagePack /[Haskell]

base64-bytestring - Fast base64 encoding and decoding for Haskell.

cassava-conduit - Conduit interface for cassava [Haskell]

bimap - Bidirectional mapping between two key types

witherable - Filter with effects

folds - Folds and sequence algebras

file-embed - Use Template Haskell to embed file contents directly.
