Hack: a sexy Haskell Webserver Interface

Hack is a brain-dead port of the brilliant Ruby Rack webserver interface.

What does a Hack app look like

module Main where

import Hack
import Hack.Handler.Kibro

hello :: Application
hello = \env -> return $ Response 
    { status  = 200
    , headers = [ ("Content-Type", "text/plain") ]
    , body    = "Hello World"
    }

main = run hello

1 minute tutorial

Install Hack

cabal install hack

Install Kibro (the only handler at the moment)

cabal install kibro

Install lighttpd 1.4.19 (used by kibro)

wget http://www.lighttpd.net/download/lighttpd-1.4.19.tar.gz
tar zxfv lighttpd-1.4.19.tar.gz
cd lighttpd-1.4.19
./configure --prefix=$HOME
make
make install

Create a new Kibro project

kibro new hello-world

Test if Kibro works

cd hello-world
kibro start

Create our hack app

put the following code in src/Main.hs

module Main where

import Hack
import Hack.Handler.Kibro

hello :: Application
hello = \env -> return $ Response 
    { status  = 200
    , headers = [ ("Content-Type", "text/plain") ]
    , body    = "Hello World"
    }

main = run hello

restart kibro

kibro restart

demo usage of middle-ware

module Main where

import Hack
import Hack.Utils
import Hack.SimpleRoute
import Hack.Handler.Kibro

import Data.Default
import MPS
import Prelude hiding ((.))

hello :: Application
hello = \env -> def {body = env.show} .return

app :: Application
app = route [("/hello", hello), ("", hello)] empty_app

main = run app

make a middle-ware

inside Hack.hs:

type MiddleWare = Application -> Application

since Haskell has curry, middle-ware api can be of type

Params -> Application -> Application

just pass an applied middle-ware into a chain.

finally the source code of SimpleRoute.hs:

{-# LANGUAGE NoMonomorphismRestriction#-}
{-# LANGUAGE QuasiQuotes #-}

module Hack.SimpleRoute where

import Hack
import Hack.Utils
import List (find)
import Prelude hiding ((.), (^), (>))
import MPS

type RoutePath = (String, Application)

route :: [RoutePath] -> Application -> Application
route h _ = \env ->
  let path = env.path_info
      script = env.script_name
      mod_env location = env 
        { script_name = script ++ location
        , path_info = path.drop (location.length)
        }
  in
  case h.find (fst > flip starts_with path) of
    Nothing -> not_found [$here|Not Found: #{path}|]
    Just (location, app) -> app (mod_env location)
