Ticket #1601 (new proposed-project)
Library for the Arduino platform
|Reported by:||goto||Owned by:|
The Arduino platform is an open electronics platform for easily building interactive objects. Arduino offers simple ways of getting creative with electronics and building your own devices without having to dive deep into microcontroller programming with c or asm. I think this is a great opportunity for the Haskell community to extend beyond the software world and to get people interested in Haskell who would otherwise not consider engaging with fp.
This project would aim at providing an extensible library for programming the Arduino platform, enabling a functional (and hopefully more intuitive) way of programming the Arduino hardware. The library would be designed on providing an API for interacting with Arduino. I think this would be a better way then to write a cross-compiler or to define a language subset.
If you have any thoughts or ideas please feel free to leave a comment.
