The reactive-banana package

[ Tags: bsd3, frp, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Reactive-banana is a practical library for Functional Reactive Programming (FRP).

FRP offers an elegant and concise way to express interactive programs such as graphical user interfaces, animations, computer music or robot controllers. Thus, the reactive-banana library promises to avoid the spaghetti code commonly used in traditional GUI technologies.

See the project homepage for a more detailed introduction and features.

Stability forecast: No semantic bugs expected. Significant API changes are likely in future versions, though the main interface is beginning to stabilize. The Reactive.Banana.Switch module is quite experimental. There is currently no garbage collection for dynamically created events.

Use GHC-specific language extensions. This enables the efficient push-driven implementation, but doesn't necessarily work with compilers other than GHC.


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info
