Web Project Ideas

Below is essentially a wishlist of projects. If you decide to implement one of them, please update this page accordingly!

  • Augment authenticate package to support more providers (Twitter, Facebook, OpenId 2, etc)
  • Create a WAI handler which uses Webkit to convert web applications into desktop apps. See hack-handler-webkit for prior art.
  • The Haskell equivalent of an Object Relational Mapping. Of course, we're not object-oriented, so we have an advantage in this department. Also, we shouldn't limit ourselves to SQL.


  • See Hamlet. Compile-time checked templates. Bravo might be a possibility, though a StringTemplate syntax might be more user-friendly. Also, link checking should be included.
  • Included in wai-extra. GZIP compression using an Enumerator instead of a lazy bytestring. This would clean up the GZIP middleware in wai-extra.
  • See wai-fastcgi. fastcgi handler for WAI. See the hack-handler-fastcgi package; it should be a simple port.
