The basic-prelude package

[Tags: library, mit]

The premise of basic-prelude is that there are a lot of very commonly desired features missing from the standard Prelude, such as commonly used operators (<$> and >=>, for instance) and imports for common datatypes (e.g., ByteString and Vector). At the same time, there are lots of other components which are more debatable, such as providing polymorphic versions of common functions.

So basic-prelude is intended to give a common foundation for a number of alternate preludes. The package provides two modules: CorePrelude provides the common ground for other preludes to build on top of, while BasicPrelude exports CorePrelude together with commonly used list functions to provide a drop-in replacement for the standard Prelude.

Users wishing to have an improved Prelude can use BasicPrelude. Developers wishing to create a new prelude should use CorePrelude.
