  • Mergify - Tired of breaking your main and manually rebasing outdated pull requests?
  • time

    A time library (by haskell)


  • text

    Haskell library for space- and time-efficient operations over Unicode text. (by haskell)


  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • network

    Low-level networking interface (by haskell)

  • attoparsec

    A fast Haskell library for parsing ByteStrings


  • post-rfc

    State of the Haskell Ecosystem lists libraries for many of its domains.

  • ihp

    🔥 The fastest way to build type safe web apps. IHP is a new batteries-included web framework optimized for longterm productivity and programmer happiness

    And if you want to land a Haskell job, I'd say becoming really proficient with any stack would be more important. E.g. IHP might not be around in five years but you can use it to make web/backend projects even for clients who don't care about Haskell, and if I was hiring a backend engineer I would happily hire someone proficient with IHP even though my actual Haskell stack would be entirely different.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
