Haskell Lisp

Lispers who love Haskell can be heard saying that Haskell is Lisp's missing M-Expression implementation. Though that statement embodies a great deal of poetic license (an perhaps romanticism), there is a very natural fit between the two.

In practical terms, there are two areas of intersection between Haskell and Lisp:

  1. Haskell implementations written in Lisp (there seems to be only one of these), and
  2. Lisps written in Haskell (much more common)

There is a github organization which tracks these projects, though more detail is given below.

Also, there is a twitter account dedicated to all things Haskell+Lisp.
