uniformBase: A uniform base to build apps on

[ gpl, library, programming-uniform ] [ Propose Tags ]


  • reducing the complexity for the programmer of applications,

  • functions with identical semantics independent of representation,

  • all functions are total (or become so using Maybe or Either),

  • compatible error reporting for all packages,

  • avoid name clashes with other packages and assume the regular prelude,

  • performance is NOT a goal - once the program logic is confirmed and tested, performance improvements can be achieved based on observations

The packages included here deal with

  • a generally usable zero (null) value and other simplistic algebras,

  • handling of text independent of represenations and principled conversion between representations,

  • a minimal error reporting as text error messages,

  • bringing together functions to handle time,

  • uniform functions to handle files and filepaths (Filepath and Path).

Readme for uniformBase-

[back to package description]


The package imports separately compilable and usable packages. This package and all its parts are self-contained and need no further imports; no need to import the subpackages individually.

The package depends indirectly on many often used packages but some concentration is planned in the future, using other attemps with similar goals.

libraries required:

  • for uniform-strings debian: apt install libicu-dev
