The TYB package

[ Tags: bsd3, generics, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

TYB is a generic-programming system that uses Template Haskell to generate boiler-plate traversals at compile time. This results in significantly improved performance. The paper documenting it is available at:

Readme for TYB-0.2.3

[back to package description]

This is the Template Your Boilerplate (TYB) library.

The "Template Your Boilerplate" paper documents the design of this library and is available at:

The TYB library is in the Data.Generics.TH module.

The 'examples' folder contains examples of using TYB and is a good place to start getting familiar with TYB. They can be built with:

$ ghc --make examples/*.hs

A couple of useful debugging helpers for Template Haskell are included in the Debug.TH module.

We welcome feedback on both the implementation and the interface.
