Build Status Coverage Status

Hask is a pure-Python, zero-dependencies library that mimics most of the core language tools from Haskell, including:

  • Full Hindley-Milner type system (with typeclasses) that will typecheck any function decorated with a Hask type signature
  • Easy creation of new algebraic data types and new typeclasses, with Haskell-like syntax
  • Pattern matching with case expressions
  • Automagical function currying/partial application and function composition
  • Efficient, immutable, lazily evaluated List type with Haskell-style list comprehensions
  • All your favorite syntax and control flow tools, including operator sections, monadic error handling, guards, and more
  • Python port of (some of) the standard libraries from Haskell's base, including:
    • Algebraic datatypes from the Haskell Prelude, including Maybe and Either
    • Typeclasses from the Haskell base libraries, including Functor, Applicative, Monad, Enum, Num, and all the rest
    • Standard library functions from base, including all functions from Prelude, Data.List, Data.Maybe, and more

Features not yet implemented, but coming soon:

  • Python 3 compatibility
  • Better support for polymorphic return values/type defaulting
  • Better support for lazy evaluation (beyond just the List type and pattern matching)
  • More of the Haskell standard library (Control.* libraries, QuickCheck, and more)
  • Monadic, lazy I/O

Note that all of this is still very much pre-alpha, and some things may be buggy!


1) git clone https://github.com/billpmurphy/hask

2) python setup.py install

To run the tests: python tests.py.

Why did you make this?

I wanted to cram as much of Haskell into Python as possible while still being 100% compatible with the rest of Python, just to see if any useful ideas came out of the result. Also, it was fun!

Contributions, forks, and extensions to this experiment are always welcome! Feel free to submit a pull request, open an issue, or email me. In the spirit of this project, abusing the Python language as much as possible is encouraged.


Hask is a grab-bag of features that add up to one big pseudo-Haskell functional programming library. The rest of this README lays out the basics.

I recommend playing around in the REPL while going through the examples. You

To import all the language features: from hask import * To import the Prelude: from hask import Prelude To import a base library, e.g. Data.List: from hask import Data.List

The List type and list comprehensions

Hask provides the List type, a lazy and statically-typed list, similar to Haskell's standard list type.

To create a new List, just put the elements inside L[ and ] brackets, or wrap an existing iterable inside L[ ].

>>> L[1, 2, 3]
L[1, 2, 3]

>>> my_list = ["a", "b", "c"]
>>> L[my_list]
L['a', 'b', 'c']

>>> L[(x**2 for x in range(1, 11))]
L[1 ... ]

To add elements to the front of a List, use ^, the cons operator. To combine two lists, use +, the concatenation operator.

>>> 1 ^ L[2, 3]
L[1, 2, 3]

>>> "goodnight" ^ ("sweet" ^ ("prince" ^ L[[]]))
L["goodnight", "sweet", "prince"]

>>> "a" ^ L[1.0, 10.3]  # type error

>>> L[1, 2] + L[3, 4]
L[1, 2, 3, 4]

Lists are always evaluated lazily, and will only evaluate list elements as needed, so you can use infinite Lists or put never-ending generators inside of a List. (Of course, you can still blow up the interpreter if you try to evaluate the entirety of an infinite List, e.g. by trying to find the length of the List with len.)

One way to create infinite lists is via list comprehensions. As in Haskell, there are four basic type of list comprehensions:

# list from 1 to infinity, counting by ones
L[1, ...]

# list from 1 to infinity, counting by twos
L[1, 3, ...]

# list from 1 to 20 (inclusive), counting by ones
L[1, ..., 20]

# list from 1 to 20 (inclusive), counting by fours
L[1, 5, ..., 20]

List comprehensions can be used on ints, longs, floats, one-character strings, or any other instance of the Enum typeclass (more on this later).

Hask provides all of the Haskell functions for List manipulation (take, drop, takeWhile, etc.), or you can also use Python-style indexing.

>>> L[1, ...]
L[1 ...]

>>> from hask.Data.List import take
>>> take(5, L["a", "b", ...])
L['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e']

>>> L[1,...][5:10]
L[6, 7, 8, 9, 10]

>>> from hask.Data.List import map
>>> from hask.Data.Char import chr
>>> letters = map(chr, L[97, ...])
>>> letters[:9]
L['a', 'b', 'c', 'd', 'e', 'f', 'g', 'h', 'i']

>>> len(L[1, 3, ...])  # uh oh

Otherwise, you can use List just like you would use a regular Python list.

for i in L[0, ...]:
    print i

>>> 55 in L[1, 3, ...]

Algebraic Data Types

Hask allows you to define algebraic datatypes, which are immutable objects with a fixed number of typed, unnamed fields.

Here is the definition for the infamous Maybe type:

from hask import data, d, deriving
from hask import Read, Show, Eq, Ord

Maybe, Nothing, Just =\
    data.Maybe("a") == d.Nothing | d.Just("a") & deriving(Read, Show, Eq, Ord)

Let's break this down a bit. The syntax for defining a new type constructor is:

data.TypeName("type param", "type param 2" ... "type param n")

This defines a new algebraic datatype with type parameters.

To define data constructors for this type, use d. The name of the data constructor goes first, followed by its fields. Multiple data constructors should be separted by |. If your data constructor has no fields, you can omit the parens. For example:

FooBar, Foo, Bar =\
    data.FooBar("a", "b") == d.Foo("a", "b", str) | d.Bar

To automagically derive typeclass instances for the type, add & deriving(...typeclasses...) after the data constructor declarations. Currently, the only typeclasses that can be derived are Eq, Show, Read, Ord, and Bounded.

Putting it all together, here are the definitions of Either and Ordering:

Either, Left, Right =\
    data.Either("a", "b") == d.Left("a") | d.Right("b") & deriving(Read, Show, Eq)

Ordering, LT, EQ, GT =\
    data.Ordering == d.LT | d.EQ | d.GT & deriving(Read, Show, Eq, Ord, Bounded)

You can now use the data constructors defined in a data statement to create instances of these new types. If the data constructor takes no arguments, you can use it just like a variable.

>>> Just(10)

>>> Nothing

>>> Just(Just(10))

>>> Left(1)

>>> Foo(1, 2, "hello")
Foo(1, 2, 'hello')

You can view the type of an object with _t (equivalent to :t in ghci).

>>> from hask import _t

>>> _t(1)

>>> _t(Just("soylent green"))
(Maybe str)

>>> _t(Right(("a", 1)))
(Either a (str, int))

>>> _t(Just)
(a -> Maybe a)

>>> _t(L[1, 2, 3, 4])

The type system and typed functions

So what's up with those types? Hask operates its own shadow Hindley-Milner type system on top of Python's type system; _t shows the Hask type of a particular object.

In Hask, typed functions take the form of TypedFunc objects, which are typed wrappers around Python functions. There are two ways to create TypedFunc objects:

1) Use the sig decorator to decorate the function with the type signature

@sig(H/ "a" >> "b" >> "a")
def const(x, y):
    return x

2) Use the ** operator (similar to :: in Haskell) to provide the type. Useful for turning functions or lambdas into TypedFunc objects in the REPL, or wrapping already-defined Python functions.

def const(x, y):
    return x

const = const ** (H/ "a" >> "b" >> "a")

TypedFunc objects have several special properties. First, they are type checked--when arguments are supplied, the type inference engine will check whether their types match the type signature, and raise a TypeError if there is a discrepancy.

>>> f = (lambda x, y: x + y) ** (H/ int >> int >> int)

>>> f(2, 3)

>>> f(9, 1.0)  # type error

Second, TypedFunc objects can be partially applied:

>>> g = (lambda a, b, c: a / (b + c)) ** (H/ int >> int >> int >> int)

>>> g(10, 2, 3)

>>> part_g = g(12)

>>> part_g(2, 2)

>>> g(20, 1)(4)

TypedFunc objects also have two special infix operators, the * and % operators. * is the compose operator (equivalent to (.) in Haskell), so f * g is equivalent to lambda x: f(g(x)). % is just the apply operator, which applies a TypedFunc to one argument (equivalent to ($) in Haskell). The convinience of this notation (when combined with partial application) cannot be overstated--you can get rid of a ton of nested parenthesis this way.

>>> from hask.Prelude import flip
>>> h = (lambda x, y: x / y) ** (H/ float >> float >> float)

>>> h(3.0) * h(6.0) * flip(h, 2.0) % 36.0

The compose operation is also typed-checked, which makes it appealing to write programs in pointfree style, i.e, chaining together lots of functions with composition and relying on the type system to catch programming errors.

As you would expect, data constructors are also just TypedFunc objects:

>>> Just * Just * Just * Just % 77

The type signature syntax is very simple, and consists of a few basic primitives that can be combined to build any type signature:

Primitive Syntax/examples
Type literal for Python builtin type or user-defined class int, float, set, list
Type variable "a", "b", "zz"
List of some type [int], ["a"], [["a"]]
Tuple type (int, int), ("a", "b", "c"), (int, ("a", "b"))
ADT with type parameters t(Maybe, "a"), t(Either, "a", str)
Unit type (None) None
Untyped Python function func
Typeclass constraint H[(Eq, "a"), (Show, "b")]/, H[(Functor, "f"), (Show, "f")]/

Some examples:

# add two ints together
@sig(H/ int >> int >> int)
def add(x, y):
    return x + y

# reverse order of arguments to a function
@sig(H/ (H/ "a" >> "b" >> "c") >> "b" >> "a" >> "c")
def flip(f, b, a):
    return f(a, b)

# map a Python (untyped) function over a Python (untyped) set
@sig(H/ func >> set >> set)
def set_map(fn, lst):
    return set((fn(x) for x in lst))

# map a typed function over a List
@sig(H/ (H/ "a" >> "b") >> ["a"] >> ["b"])
def map(f, xs):
    return L[(f(x) for x in xs)]

# type signature with an Eq constraint
@sig(H[(Eq, "a")]/ "a" >> ["a"] >> bool)
def not_in(y, xs):
    return not any((x == y for x in xs))

# type signature with a type constructor (Maybe) that has type arguments
@sig(H/ int >> int >> t(Maybe, int))
def safe_div(x, y):
    return Nothing if y == 0 else Just(x/y)

# type signature for a function that returns nothing
@sig(H/ int >> None)
def launch_missiles(num_missiles):
    print "Launching {0} missiles! Bombs away!" % num_missiles

It is also possible to create type synonyms using t. For example, check out the definition of Rational:

Ratio, R =\
        data.Ratio("a") == d.R("a", "a") & deriving(Eq)

Rational = t(Ratio, int)

@sig(H/ Rational >> Rational >> Rational)
def addRational(rat1, rat2):

Pattern matching

Pattern matching is a more powerful control flow tool than the if statement, and can be used to deconstruct iterables and ADTs and bind values to local variables.

Pattern matching expressions follow this syntax:

    | m(pattern_1) >> return_value_1
    | m(pattern_2) >> return_value_2
    | m(pattern_3) >> return_value_3)

Here is a function that uses pattern matching to compute the fibonacci sequence. Note that within a pattern match expression, m.* is used to bind variables, and p.* is used to access them.

def fib(x):
    return ~(caseof(x)
                | m(0)   >> 1
                | m(1)   >> 1
                | m(m.n) >> fib(p.n - 1) + fib(p.n - 2))

>>> fib(1)

>>> fib(6)

As the above example shows, you can combine pattern matching and recursive functions without a hitch.

You can also deconstruct an iterable using ^ (the cons operator). The variable before the ^ is bound to the first element of the iterable, and the variable after the ^ is bound to the rest of the iterable. Here is a function that adds the first two elements of any iterable, returning Nothing if there are less than two elements:

@sig(H[(Num, "a")]/ ["a"] >> t(Maybe, "a"))
def add_first_two(xs):
    return ~(caseof(xs)
                | m(m.x ^ (m.y ^ m.z)) >> Just(p.x + p.y)
                | m(m.x)               >> Nothing)

>>> add_first_two(L[1, 2, 3, 4, 5])

>>> add_first_two(L[9.0])

Pattern matching is also very useful for deconstructing ADTs and assigning their fields to temporary variables.

def default_to_zero(x):
    return ~(caseof(x)
                | m(Just(m.x)) >> p.x
                | m(Nothing)   >> 0)

>>> default_to_zero(Just(27))

>>> default_to_zero(Nothing)

If you find pattern matching on ADTs too cumbersome, you can also use numeric indexing on ADT fields. An IndexError will be thrown if you mess something up.

>>> Just(20.0)[0]

>>> Left("words words words words")[0]
'words words words words'

>>> Nothing[0]  # IndexError

Typeclasses and typeclass instances

Typeclasses allow you to add additional functionality to your ADTs. Hask implements all of the major typeclasses from Haskell (see the Appendix for a full list) and provides syntax for creating new typeclass instances.

As an example, let's add a Monad instance for the Maybe type. First, however, Maybe needs Functor and Applicative instances.

def maybe_fmap(fn, x):
    """Apply a function to the value inside of a (Maybe a) value"""
    return ~(caseof(x)
                | m(Nothing)   >> Nothing
                | m(Just(m.x)) >> Just(fn(p.x)))

instance(Functor, Maybe).where(
    fmap = maybe_fmap

Maybe is now an instance of Functor. This allows us to call fmap and map any function of type a -> b into a value of type Maybe a.

>>> times2 = (lambda x: x * 2) ** (H/ int >> int)
>>> toFloat = float ** (H/ int >> float)

>>> fmap(toFloat, Just(10))

>>> fmap(toFloat, fmap(times2, Just(25)))

Lots of nested calls to fmap get unwieldy very fast. Fortunately, any instance of Functor can be used with the infix fmap operator, *. This is equivalent to <$> in Haskell. Rewriting our example from above:

>>> (toFloat * times2) * Just(25)

>>> (toFloat * times2) * Nothing

Note that this example uses * as both the function compose operator and as fmap, to lift functions into a Maybe value. If this seems confusing, remember that fmap for functions is just function composition!

Now that Maybe is an instance of Functor, we can make it an instance of Applicative and then an instance of Monad by defining the appropriate function implementations. To implement Applicative, we just need to provide pure. To implement Monad, we need to provide bind.

from hask import Applicative, Monad

instance(Applicative, Maybe).where(
    pure = Just

instance(Monad, Maybe).where(
    bind = lambda x, f: ~(caseof(x)
                            | m(Just(m.a)) >> f(p.a)
                            | m(Nothing)   >> Nothing)

The bind function also has an infix form, which is >> in Hask.

@sig(H/ int >> int >> t(Maybe, int))
def safe_div(x, y):
    return Nothing if y == 0 else Just(x/y)

>>> from hask.Prelude import flip
>>> divBy = flip(safe_div)

>>> Just(9) >> divBy(3)

>>> Just(12) >> divBy(2) >> divBy(2) >> divBy(3)

>>> Just(12) >> divBy(0) >> divBy(6)

As in Haskell, List is also a monad, and bind for the List type is just concatMap.

>>> from hask.Data.List import replicate
>>> L[1, 2] >> replicate(2) >> replicate(2)
L[1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2]

You can also define typeclass instances for classes that are not ADTs:

class Person(object):
    def __init__(self, name, age):
        self.name = name
        self.age = age

instance(Eq, Person).where(
    eq = lambda p1, p2: p1.name == p2.name and p1.age == p2.age

>>> Person("Philip Wadler", 59) == Person("Simon Peyton Jones", 57)

If you want instances of the Show, Eq, Read, Ord, and Bounded typeclasses for your ADTs, it is adviseable to use deriving to automagically generate instances rather than defining them manually.

Defining your own typeclasses is pretty easy--take a look at help(Typeclass) and look at the typeclasses defined in Data.Functor and Data.Num to see how it's done.

Operator sections

Hask also supports operator sections (e.g. (1+) in Haskell). Sections are just TypedFunc objects, so they are automagically curried and typechecked.

>>> from hask import __

>>> f = (__ - 20) * (2 ** __) * (__ + 3)
>>> f(10)

>>> ((90/__) * (10+__)) * Just(20)

>>> from hask.Data.List import takeWhile
>>> takeWhile(__<5, L[1, ...])
L[1, 2, 3, 4]

>>> (__+__)('Hello ', 'world')
'Hello world'

>>> (__**__)(2)(10)

>>> from hask.Data.List import zipWith, take
>>> take(5) % zipWith(__ * __, L[1, ...], L[1, ...])
L[1, 4, 9, 16, 25]

As you can see, this much easier than using lambda and adding a type signature with the (lambda x: ...) ** (H/ ...) syntax.

In addition, the types of the TypedFuncs created by sections are always polymorphic, to allow for any operator overloading.

Note that if you are using IPython, Hask's __ will conflict with IPython's special double underscore variable. To avoid conflicts, you can use from hask import __ as _s in IPython.


If you don't need the full power of pattern matching and just want a neater switch statement, you can use guards. The syntax for guards is almost identical to the syntax for pattern matching.

    | c(test_1) >> return_value_1
    | c(test_2) >> return_value_2
    | otherwise >> return_value_3

As in Haskell, otherwise will always evaluate to True and can be used as a catch-all in guard expressions. If no match is found (and an otherwise clause is not present), a NoGuardMatchException will be raised.

Guards will also play nicely with sections:

>>> from hask import guard, c, otherwise

>>> porridge_tempurature = 80

>>> ~(guard(porridge_tempurature)
...     | c(__ < 20)  >> "Porridge is too cold!"
...     | c(__ < 90)  >> "Porridge is just right!"
...     | c(__ < 150) >> "Porridge is too hot!"
...     | otherwise   >> "Porridge has gone thermonuclear"
... )
'Porridge is just right!'

If you need a more complex conditional, you can always use lambdas, regular Python functions, or any other callable in your guard condition.

def examine_password_security(password):
    analysis = ~(guard(password)
        | c(lambda x: len(x) > 20) >> "Wow, that's one secure password"
        | c(lambda x: len(x) < 5)  >> "You made Bruce Schneier cry"
        | c(__ == "12345")         >> "Same combination as my luggage!"
        | otherwise                >> "Hope it's not 'password'"
    return analysis

>>> nuclear_launch_code = "12345"

>>> examine_password_security(nuclear_launch_code)
'Same combination as my luggage!'

Monadic error handling (of Python functions)

If you want to use Maybe and Either to handle errors raised by Python functions defined outside Hask, you can use the decorators in_maybe and in_either to create functions that call the original function and return the result wrapped inside a Maybe or Either value.

If a function wrapped in in_maybe raises an exception, the wrapped function will return Nothing. Otherwise, the result will be returned wrapped in a Just.

def eat_cheese(cheese):
    if cheese <= 0:
        raise ValueError("Out of cheese error")
    return cheese - 1

maybe_eat = in_maybe(eat_cheese)

>>> maybe_eat(1)

>>> maybe_eat(0)

Note that this is equivalent to lifting the original function into the Maybe monad. That is, its type has changed from func to a -> Maybe b. This makes it easier to use the convineient monad error handling style commonly seen in Haskell with existing Python functions.

Continuing with this silly example, let's try to eat three pieces of cheese, returning Nothing if the attempt was unsuccessful:

>>> cheese = 10
>>> cheese_left = Just(cheese) >> maybe_eat >> maybe_eat >> maybe_eat
>>> cheese_left

>>> cheese = 1
>>> cheese_left = Just(cheese) >> maybe_eat >> maybe_eat >> maybe_eat
>>> cheese_left

Notice that we have taken a regular Python function that throws Exceptions, and are now handling it in a type-safe, monadic way.

The in_either function works just like in_maybe. If an Exception is thrown, the wrapped function will return the exception wrapped in Left. Otherwise, the result will be returned wrapped in Right.

either_eat = in_either(eat_cheese)

>>> either_eat(Right(10))

>>> either_eat(Right(0))
Left(ValueError('Out of cheese error',))

Chained cheese-eating in the Either monad is left as an exercise for the reader.

You can also use in_maybe or in_either as decorators:

def some_function(x, y):

Standard libraries

All of your favorite functions from Prelude, Data.List, Data.Maybe, Data.Either, Data.Monoid, and more are implemented too. Everything is pretty well documented, so if you're not sure about some function or typeclass, use help liberally. See the Appendix below for a full list of modules. Some highlights:

>>> from hask.Data.Maybe import mapMaybe
>>> mapMaybe(safe_div(12)) % L[0, 1, 3, 0, 6]
L[12, 4, 2]

>>> from hask.Data.List import isInfixOf
>>> isInfixOf(L[2, 8], L[1, 4, 6, 2, 8, 3, 7])

>>> from hask.Control.Monad import join
>>> join(Just(Just(1)))

Hask also provies TypeFunc wrappers for everything in __builtins__ for ease of compatibity. (Eventually, Hask will have typed wrappers for most of the Python standard library.)

>>> from hask.Prelude import flip
>>> from hask.Data.Tuple import snd
>>> from hask.Python.builtins import divmod, hex

>>> hexMod = hex * snd * flip(divmod, 16)
>>> hexMod(24)


If you want to poke around behind the curtain, here are some useful starting points:

  • typeof(obj) returns an object's type in Hask's type system
  • has_instance(some_type, typeclass) tests for typeclass membership
  • nt_to_tuple converts instances of namedtuple (including Hask ADTs) into regular tuples
  • typify converts a Python function into a TypedFunc object
