dynamic-linker-template: Automatically derive dynamic linking methods from a data type.

[ bsd3, library, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package uses Template Haskell to generate dynamic linking FFI methods from a record by using its field names. A load function is generated to create an instance of the data from a library path.

Optional symbols are supported (use Maybe types in the data structure).

A String->String method can be provided to deal with symbols whose names are not exactly the same as field names.

See https://github.com/hsyl20/dynamic-linker-template/blob/master/Tests/Test.hs for an example.
