Applications, libraries and tools written in Haskell.

Developers: if you release any Haskell code, please document it for the community, by adding it to the appropriate category on this page.

Standard libraries

The first places to look for data types or functions are:

Categories of Libraries and Tools

Third party libraries and tools for Haskell, or written in Haskell:

Other places to look include:

Guidelines

Best practices for making new submissions:

  • Guide to making standard library submissions
  • How to write a Haskell program
  • If you notice the library documentation is lacking, or could be improved, please report it here
  • Google Code Search can help identify common idioms, improving your API
  • Advice on the best libraries to use for particular problem cases.
  • Project activity for some of the larger Haskell projects is graphed here.
  • Cabal, The Common Architecture for Building Applications and Libraries, is a framework for packaging, building, and installing any tool developed in the Haskell language.

Proposals for the module name space layout that can be used to guide the construction of new libraries.

Libraries for other languages

If you are thinking about designing a new library for Haskell, you ought to look what has been done in other languages. Here are standard library definitions for
