    A 2D charting library for haskell

    Hi u/Target_Organic, I wich you a warm welcome! Haskell is often very satisfying to work with, it has a sense of beauty in it. Regarding your questions: 1. I never had big problems about performance. However, I personally place more emphasis about correctness, simplicity and readability of my programs. Performance tuning comes after. 2. For graphic libraries, I know diagrams, Reanimate and Haskell-chart. Since you seems interested by mathematical approach to graphics, I think you will find happiness there. 3. I'm not sure about the AI field. Other, more practical languages such as Python seems to have taken the lead. What is sure for me, that Machine Learning/NN would be nicely describe in Haskell with solid foundations.

  • reanimate

    Haskell library for building declarative animations based on SVG graphics

  • hs-quake-3

    Quake 3 map viewer written in Haskell

    To give a feel of what is possible, I've written a Quake 3 map viewer in Haskell (https://github.com/ocharles/hs-quake-3). I'm not the first to do this - Lambda Cube did this 9 years ago (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JleoASegUlk)

  • vulkan

    Haskell bindings for Vulkan (by expipiplus1)

    At this point the answer is: yes, we have some. We have sdl2 (https://hackage.haskell.org/package/sdl2), gl (https://hackage.haskell.org/package/gl), OpenGL (https://hackage.haskell.org/package/OpenGL), GLFW (https://hackage.haskell.org/package/GLFW), vulkan (https://hackage.haskell.org/package/vulkan), dear-imgui.hs (https://hackage.haskell.org/package/dear-imgui). There's certainly much more out there - this is a biased list of stuff I've either used or contributed to.

  • gl

    Complete raw OpenGL bindings for Haskell (by ekmett)
