Servant Elm

Build Status

Generate Elm functions to query your Servant API!

Elm type generation coutesy of krisajenkins/elm-export.

Installation

Servant Elm is available on Hackage.

Example

First, some language pragmas and imports.

{-# LANGUAGE DataKinds         #-}
{-# LANGUAGE DeriveGeneric     #-}
{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TypeOperators     #-}

import           Elm          (Spec (Spec), specsToDir, toElmDecoderSource,
                               toElmTypeSource)
import           GHC.Generics (Generic)
import           Servant.API  ((:>), Capture, Get, JSON)
import           Servant.Elm  (ElmType, Proxy (Proxy), defElmImports,
                               generateElmForAPI)

We have some Haskell-defined types and our Servant API.

data Book = Book
    { name :: String
    } deriving (Generic)

instance ElmType Book

type BooksApi = "books" :> Capture "bookId" Int :> Get '[JSON] Book

Now we can generate Elm functions to query the API:

spec :: Spec
spec = Spec ["Generated", "MyApi"]
            (defElmImports
             : toElmTypeSource    (Proxy :: Proxy Book)
             : toElmDecoderSource (Proxy :: Proxy Book)
             : generateElmForAPI  (Proxy :: Proxy BooksApi))

main :: IO ()
main = specsToDir [spec] "my-elm-dir"

Let's save this as example.hs and run it:

$ stack runghc example.hs
Writing: my-elm-dir/Generated/MyApi.elm
$

Here's what was generated:

module Generated.MyApi exposing (..)

import Json.Decode exposing (..)
import Json.Decode.Pipeline exposing (..)
import Json.Encode
import Http
import String


type alias Book =
    { name : String
    }

decodeBook : Decoder Book
decodeBook =
    decode Book
        |> required "name" string

getBooksByBookId : Int -> Http.Request (Book)
getBooksByBookId capture_bookId =
    Http.request
        { method =
            "GET"
        , headers =
            []
        , url =
            String.join "/"
                [ ""
                , "books"
                , capture_bookId |> toString |> Http.encodeUri
                ]
        , body =
            Http.emptyBody
        , expect =
            Http.expectJson decodeBook
        , timeout =
            Nothing
        , withCredentials =
            False
        }

See examples for a complete usage example, or take a look at mattjbray/servant-elm-example-app for an example project using this library.
