The haxl package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

Haxl is a library and EDSL for efficient scheduling of concurrent data accesses with a concise applicative API.

To use Haxl, you need to implement one or more data sources, which provide the means for accessing remote data or other I/O that you want to perform using Haxl.

Haxl provides two top-level modules:

Haxl Logo


Haxl is a Haskell library that simplifies access to remote data, such as databases or web-based services. Haxl can automatically

Having all this handled for you behind the scenes means that your data-fetching code can be much cleaner and clearer than it would otherwise be if it had to worry about optimizing data-fetching. We'll give some examples of how this works in the pages linked below.

There are two Haskell packages here:

To use Haxl in your own application, you will likely need to build one or more data sources: the thin layer between Haxl and the data that you want to fetch, be it a database, a web API, a cloud service, or whatever. The haxl-facebook package shows how we might build a Haxl data source based on the existing fb package for talking to the Facebook Graph API.
