Readme for rallod

Readme for rallod-0.0.1


A sinatra-ish web framework written in haskell, riding on top of Hack.


Sinatra has a beautiful, simple, elegant syntax, but it's essentially an attempt to bring pattern matching to a language never intended for pattern matching. Why not attempt something similar in a language with not just beautiful pattern matching, but with all the declarative bells and whistles: lazy evaluation, first-class functions, currying, polymorphism?
