Freer: Extensible Effects with Freer Monads

Freer is an implementation of "Freer Monads, More Extensible Effects". Much of the implementation is a repackaging and cleaning up of the reference materials provided here.

Features

The key features of Freer are:

  • An efficient effect system for Haskell as a library
  • Implementations for several common Haskell monad instances:
    • Reader
    • Writer
    • State
    • StateRW: State in terms of Reader/Writer
    • Trace
    • Exception
  • Core components for defining your own Effects

Example: Teletype DSL

Here's what using Freer looks like:

{-# LANGUAGE GADTs #-}
{-# LANGUAGE FlexibleContexts #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TypeOperators #-}
{-# LANGUAGE DataKinds #-}
module Teletype where

import Control.Monad.Freer
import Control.Monad.Freer.Internal
import System.Exit hiding (ExitSuccess)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          -- Effect Model --
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
data Teletype s where
  PutStrLn    :: String -> Teletype ()
  GetLine     :: Teletype String
  ExitSuccess :: Teletype ()

putStrLn' :: Member Teletype r => String -> Eff r ()
putStrLn' = send . PutStrLn

getLine'  :: Member Teletype r => Eff r String
getLine' = send GetLine

exitSuccess' :: Member Teletype r => Eff r ()
exitSuccess' = send ExitSuccess

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                     -- Effectful Interpreter --
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
runTeletype :: Eff '[Teletype] w -> IO w
runTeletype (Val x) = return x
runTeletype (E u q) = case extract u of
              (PutStrLn msg) -> putStrLn msg  >> runTeletype (qApp q ())
              GetLine        -> getLine      >>= \s -> runTeletype (qApp q s)
              ExitSuccess    -> exitSuccess

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                        -- Pure Interpreter --
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
runTeletypePure :: [String] -> Eff '[Teletype] w -> [String]
runTeletypePure inputs req =
  reverse . snd $ run (handleRelayS (inputs, []) (\s _ -> pure s) go req)
  where
    go :: ([String], [String])
       -> Teletype v
       -> (([String], [String]) -> Arr '[] v ([String], [String]))
       -> Eff '[] ([String], [String])
    go (is, os) (PutStrLn msg) q = q (is, msg : os) ()
    go (i:is, os) GetLine q = q (is, os) i
    go ([], _) GetLine _ = error "Not enough lines"
    go (_, os) ExitSuccess _ = pure ([], os)

Contributing

Contributions are welcome! Documentation, examples, code, and feedback - they all help.

Be sure to review the included code of conduct. This project adheres to the Contributor's Covenant. By participating in this project you agree to abide by its terms.

Developer Setup

The easiest way to start contributing is to install stack. stack can install GHC/Haskell for you, and automates common developer tasks.

The key commands are:

  • stack setup : install GHC
  • stack build
  • stack clean
  • stack haddock : builds documentation
  • stack test
  • stack bench
  • stack ghci : start a REPL instance
