lio-simple adds LIO support for the Simple "framework-less" web framework. Simple is minimalist, providing a lightweight base - the most basic Simple app is little more than a WAI Application with some routing logic. Everything else (e.g. authentication, controllers, persistence, caching etc') is provided in composable units, so you can include only the ones you need in your app, and easily replace with your own components. LIO is an information flow control library that lets you enforce various security policies, including mandatory and discretionary access control.

To get started, create an app skeleton with the lio-simple utility:

$ cabal install lio-simple
$ lio-simple my_app_name
$ cd my_app_name
$ cabal run
