3 Active Projects
Please feel free to describe your current project here!
3.2 ByteString network
Change Network.* to use strict ByteStrings instead of Strings. It would also be nice to tidy up the #ifdef mess.
Current hacker(s): tibbe (Johan Tibell)
3.3 Probability monads
A really cool existing implementation: Probabilistic functional programming
Things to work on:
- Get MaybeT into Hackage.
- Is WriterT really the right monad transformer? We want the join and bind operations, but not the rest of the MonadWriter type class.
- Should probabilities be represented as floats, fractions or a type class?
- Can this run fast enough to be useful?
Current hacker(s): ekidd (Eric Kidd)
3.4 Yi hacking
Yi needs a lot of love and doesn't work out of the box for me. A nice thing to try to do is to add the collaborative editing plugin to yi (in the spirit of the Gobby editor).
