The safe-plugins package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

This library allows you to load plugins, just as hs-plugins do. But under some circumstances, you do not want to allow plugins to do everything they want. What about plugin which executes `rm -rf /*' ? In Haskell, you can limit plugin's abilities just by not allowing it to import `not safe' modules (System.IO.Unsafe, etc). With this library, you specify a list of modules that plugin should be forced to import (i.e., some plugin API module), and a list of module that you want to allow plugin to import (some `surely safe' modules). Plugin cannot import any other modules. Moreover, you can specify some language extensions, for example, NoImplicitPrelude.
