    Haskell web framework inspired by Ruby's Sinatra, using WAI and Warp (Official Repository)

    PS: If you want DIY things like this, Flask-style, you'd better take Spock, scotty or something like that.

  • yesod-minimal

    A tiny, single-file yesod app that can be used as a base for reproducing bugs

    Disagree that DIY means you should do Spock (which has far more complicated type-level machinery) or scotty (which forces more of a Haskell understanding of things and loses a lot of type safety benefits). Building a minimal DIY experience with Yesod is rather pleasant - while the default experience with the templates is batteries-included, you're absolutely free to start from scratch and have a minimal site which still has good type safety and smart defaults for a lot of web stuff.
