{-# LANGUAGE TemplateHaskell #-}

{-| This module provides `staticDhallExpression` which can be used to resolve
    all of an expression’s imports at compile time, allowing one to reference
    Dhall expressions from Haskell without having a runtime dependency on the
    location of Dhall files.

    For example, given a file @".\/Some\/Type.dhall"@ containing

    > < This : Natural | Other : ../Other/Type.dhall >

    ... rather than duplicating the AST manually in a Haskell `Type`, you can

    > Dhall.Type
    > (\case
    >     UnionLit "This" _ _  -> ...
    >     UnionLit "Other" _ _ -> ...)
    > $(staticDhallExpression "./Some/Type.dhall")

    This would create the Dhall Expr AST from the @".\/Some\/Type.dhall"@ file
    at compile time with all imports resolved, making it easy to keep your Dhall
    configs and Haskell interpreters in sync.
