- HaXml: utilities for using XML with Haskell
- Includes an XML parser, an HTML parser, a pretty-printer, a combinator library for generic XML transformations, and two Haskell>-<XML converters using type-based translation.
- HXT: Haskell XML Toolbox
- The Haskell XML Toolbox (HXT) bases on the ideas of HaXml and HXML, but introduces a more general approach based on arrows for processing XML with Haskell. The Haskell XML Toolbox uses a generic data model for representing XML documents, including the DTD subset and the document subset, in Haskell. It contains an XML parser, an HTML parser, namespaces are supported, XPath expressions can be used for selecting and transforming parts of a document. Validation can be performed with respect to DTDs and RelaxNG schema. A Getting started page describes the programming model behind HXT and gives some simple examples.
- A little wrapper to HaXML and HXT: It provides a more natural data structure for representing XML trees, and converts between HaXML or HXT and its custom tree structure. The operations on the tree need not to be of type (a -> [a]), thus using these functions is a bit more type safe. It has a custom lazy HTML parser using TagSoup and a custom lazy formatter. The library is currently much oriented to HTML rather than XML.
- 2LT: Two-Level Transformation
- A two-level data transformation consists of a type-level transformation of a data format coupled with value-level transformations of data instances corresponding to that format. Examples of two-level data transformations include XML schema evolution coupled with document migration, and data mappings used for interoperability and persistence. A library of two-level transformation combinators. These combinators are used to compose transformation systems which, when applied to an input type, produce an output type, together with the conversion functions that mediate between input and out types. Front-ends for XML and SQL. These front-ends support (i) reading a schema, (ii) applying a two-level transformation system to produce a new schema, (iii) convert a document/database corresponding to the input schema to a document/database corresponding to the output schema, and vice versa. Referential constraints and primary key information are propagated through the schema transformation.
- A direct Haskell embedding of SXML
- StaticDTD: complete static validness against a DTD.
