Readme for exon-

[back to package description]

This Haskell library provides string interpolation in quasiquotes, allowing you to build strings like this:

animal = "snake"
location = "a tree"
[exon|#{animal} in #{location}|]
-- "snake in a tree"

Each step of the process is customizable based on the result type of the quote, making it possible to construct strings for arbitrary types. For example, String -> String is the type used by showsPrec, which can be a bit of a hassle to write:

data Record =
  Record {
    number :: Int,
    maybeNumber :: Maybe Int,
    value :: Value

instance Show Record where
  showsPrec d Record {..} =
    showParen (d > 10) [exon|Record #{showsPrec 11 number} #{showsPrec 11 maybeNumber} #{showsPrec 11 value}|]
