hint: Runtime Haskell interpreter (GHC API wrapper)

[ bsd3, compilers-interpreters, language, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This library defines an Interpreter monad. It allows to load Haskell modules, browse them, type-check and evaluate strings with Haskell expressions and even coerce them into values. The library is thread-safe and type-safe (even the coercion of expressions to values). It is, essentially, a huge subset of the GHC API wrapped in a simpler API.

Build Status Hackage

This library defines an Interpreter monad. It allows to load Haskell modules, browse them, type-check and evaluate strings with Haskell expressions and even coerce them into values. The library is thread-safe and type-safe (even the coercion of expressions to values).

It is, essentially, a huge subset of the GHC API wrapped in a simpler API.

Compatibility is kept with the three last major GHC releases. For example, if the current version is GHC 8.4, Hint will work on 8.4, 8.2 and 8.0.

Example

Check example.hs to see a simple but comprehensive example (it must be run from the examples directory).
