Haskell in web browser
A Tutorial

Preface

This tutorial is written in connection with launch of the experimental Yhc Web Service, an online tool to explore the possibilities of Haskell use as a language to program client part (that is, running in a browser) of Web applications by the means of conversion of Haskell source to Javascript.

The idea of such conversion has been around for a while <insert citations>, and Yhc Javascript backend is its practical implementation. Use of functional languages for client-side Web programming is a relatively new phenomenon, and hopefully this Tutorial along with the Service online will attract more attention and subsequently programmers resources into this area.
