monomer: A GUI library for writing native Haskell applications.

[ bsd3, gui, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Monomer is an easy to use, cross platform, GUI library for writing native Haskell applications.

It provides a framework similar to the Elm Architecture, allowing the creation of GUIs using an extensible set of widgets with pure Haskell.
