  • Why is the debugger so bad in Haskell? (or is it just me)

    Try to restrict your types even on sub functions (inside where), use testing, break down your code to the most atomic parts, using ghci to debug each part once at a time, and because Haskell doesn't let you reuse variables, or mutate state, it's a lot easier to rationalize evaluation order (which makes it a lot easier to debug without step debuggers compared to languages like python).
