reflection: Reifies arbitrary terms into types that can be reflected back into terms

[ bsd3, data, dependent-types, library, reflection ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package addresses the configuration problem which is propogating configurations that are available at run-time, allowing multible configurations to coexist without resorting to mutable global variables or System.IO.Unsafe.unsafePerformIO.

That package is an implementation of the ideas presented in the paper "Functional Pearl: Implicit Configurations" by Oleg Kiselyov and Chung-chieh Shan (original paper). However, the API has been streamlined to improve performance.

Austin Seipp's tutorial Reflecting values to types and back provides a summary of the approach taken by this library, along with more motivating examples.

Flags

NameDescriptionDefaultType
slow

If you enable this flag, we use a more portable much much slower implementation. Moreover, the Given API is broken, so this is currently an unsupported configuration. If you feel the need to turn on this flag for any reason, please email the maintainer!

DisabledAutomatic
template-haskell

You can disable the use of the template-haskell package using -f-template-haskell.

Disabling this is an unsupported configuration, but it may be useful for accelerating builds in sandboxes for expert users.

EnabledManual

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

Downloads

Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.

Build Status

This package provides an implementation of the ideas presented in Functional Pearl: Implicit Configurations by Oleg Kiselyov and Chung-Chieh Shan. However, the API has been implemented in a much more efficient manner.
