The threepenny-gui package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

Threepenny-GUI is a small GUI framework that uses the web browser as a display.

It's cheap and easy to install because everyone has a web browser installed.

Internally, the library implements a small web server that serves a HTML/JavaScript page with the GUI elements. You can freely manipulate the HTML DOM and handle browser events from your Haskell code.

Stability forecast: This is an experimental release! Send us your feedback! Basic functionality should work. Significant API changes are likely in future versions.

NOTE: This library contains examples, but they are not built by default. To build and install the example, use the buildExamples flag like this

cabal install threepenny-gui -fbuildExamples
