    We used reflex-frp, so our app was a webview that worked on localhost and Android. The docs say it also works on iOS but we don't have an iPhone.

    The process was learning Functional Reactive Programming, then learning reflex-frp, then getting a contract with obsidian (creators of reflex) for one hour a week where we could ask questions.

    We had a grant requirement to create a phone client for Tahoe-LAFS, a Python application with a bunch of dependencies, including ZFEC, a forward error correction library.

    We needed bug for bug compatibility with the Python codebase, so I ran Tahoe on localhost and tested the Haskell client against the Python server. We used servant to build the API, since it builds both client and server side from the same description.

    The type classes do take a toll on performance, but in reflex-platform we change GHC's default flags to make the situation a lot better. It's still not ideal, but our performance winds up being OK for real applications. The most important part is that the performance scales reasonably well as the application grows. It might probably be good at some point to use backpack instead of a typeclass so that specialization can be enforced - though I'd prefer if GHC gave a way to just force specialization more effectively.

    Obelisk / reflex-platform contain nix-based solutions to building Haskell code for mobile, so you might be interested in checking out how they do it (or just using them).

    In this series of posts, we will describe how a Haskell web application can be developed using reflex-platform. reflex-platform offers reflex and reflex-dom packages. reflex package is the Haskell implementation of Functional reactive programming (FRP). reflex-dom library contains a large number of functions, classes, and types used when dealing with DOM. The packages are separated as it is possible to use the FRP approach not only for web-development. We will develop theTodo List application that allows carrying out various manipulations on the task list.

    To clarify the situation, the canonical way to develop reflex-dom projects is to start from the reflex-platform. See here:

    This might also be coming from the tests of the library (even if they can run in the browser, their tests might not). You can disabled tests using an overrides attribute in project.nix (if using reflex-stone). You can see what it should look like here : You should add this attribute at the same level where "useWarp = true;" is. This should then have lines like "diagrams = pkgs.haskell.lib.dontCheck super.diagrams;" for example if you want to disable the tests for the diagrams package.
