Hello world

Here is an example of running simple application using Warp server:

{-# LANGUAGE FlexibleInstances      #-}
{-# LANGUAGE MultiParamTypeClasses  #-}
{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings      #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TypeApplications       #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TypeSynonymInstances   #-}

import Control.Exception (SomeException)
import Data.Function     ((&))
import Data.Text         (Text, append)
import Linnet
import Network.Wai       (Application)

-- Linnet makes no assumption on how to encode exceptions.
-- It's necessary to define encoder of exceptions for used content-types.
-- Here it returns no content
instance Encode TextPlain SomeException where
  encode _ = mempty

helloName :: Endpoint IO Text
helloName = get(p' "hello" // path @Text) ~>>
               (\name -> return $ ok ("Hello, " `append` name))

app :: Application
app = bootstrap @TextPlain helloName & compile & toApp

main :: IO ()
main = run 9000 app

Now try to call your application with:

curl -v http://localhost:9000/hello/linnet
