What is it?
Threepenny-gui is a GUI framework that uses the web browser as a display.
- Easy installation. Everyone has a reasonably modern web browser installed. Just install the library from hackage and you are ready to go. The library is cross-platform.
- Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) promises to eliminate the spaghetti code that you usually get when using the traditional imperative event-based style for programming user interactions. Threepenny has an FRP library built-in, but its use is completely optional. Employ FRP when it is convenient and fall back to the traditional style when you hit an impasse.
The library is still very much in flux, significant API changes are likely in future versions. The goal is make GUI programming as simple as possible, and that just needs some experimentation.
