ANN: loli: a minimal web dev DSL

loli is a DSL built on hack. It allows you to easily define routes, build your custom template backends through a simple Template interface, and integrate with other hack middleware.

  • driver

    The simplest app looks like this

      import Network.Loli
      import Hack.Handler.Happstack
      main = run . loli - get "/" (text "loli power")
  • route

      get "/hello" - do
        text "hello"

    will route "/hello" to a controller that outputs hello.

  • middleware

    using a middleware is just as declaring

      middleware lambda
  • template

    the template interface is

      class Template a where
        interpolate :: a -> String -> Context -> IO String

    Context is just [(String, String)]

    After implementing your own template engine, you can use

      output - your-engine-constructor "template-name"
  • demo

    I put the source of a dummy paste app on itself:

loli is on hackage, lolipaste is in loli repo on github:

happy hacking
