Compile ======= Use Cabal to compile and install; ./configure uses Cabal underneath, and that path is not yet well tested. Thrift's library and generated code should compile with pretty much any GHC extensions or warnings you enable (or disable). Please report this not being the case as a bug on https://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/CreateIssue!default.jspa Chances you'll need to muck a bit with Cabal flags to install Thrift: CABAL_CONFIGURE_FLAGS="--user" ./configure Base Types ========== The mapping from Thrift types to Haskell's is: * double -> Double * byte -> Data.Word.Word8 * i16 -> Data.Int.Int16 * i32 -> Data.Int.Int32 * i64 -> Data.Int.Int64 * string -> String * binary -> Data.ByteString.Lazy * bool -> Boolean Enums ===== Become Haskell 'data' types. Use fromEnum to get out the int value. Structs ======= Become records. Field labels are ugly, of the form f_STRUCTNAME_FIELDNAME. All fields are Maybe types. Exceptions ========== Identical to structs. Throw them with throwDyn. Catch them with catchDyn. Client ====== Just a bunch of functions. You may have to import a bunch of client files to deal with inheritance. Interface ========= You should only have to import the last one in the chain of inheritors. To make an interface, declare a label: data MyIface = MyIface and then declare it an instance of each iface class, starting with the superest class and proceding down (all the while defining the methods). Then pass your label to process as the handler. Processor ========= Just a function that takes a handler label, protocols. It calls the superclasses process if there is a superclass.
