Welcome to another issue of Haskell Weekly! Haskell is a safe, purely functional programming language with a fast, concurrent runtime. This is a weekly summary of what’s going on in its community.
Collect in Rust, traverse in Haskell and Scala by Michael Snoyman
There’s a running joke in the functional programming community. Any Scala program can be written by combining the
traversefunction the correct number of times. This blog post is dedicated to that joke.
Experiences after installing Haskell language server by Henri Tuhola
The Haskell language server is definitely making programming more smooth by reducing roundtrips outside to the terminal or the browser.
Let’s build a Cloudflare Worker with WebAssembly and Haskell by Cristhian Motoche
In exploring the tools that help us run our systems based on Haskell, our developer Cristhian Motoche has created a tutorial that shows how to compile Haskell to WebAssembly using Asterius for deployment on Cloudflare.
Making GHCIDE smarter and faster: a fellowship summary by Zubin Duggal
The product of this fellowship was a good selection of ghcide and haskell-language-server features that you can use right now, or will be able to use very soon, including better search, richer information and more efficient queries.
Production Haskell Alpha Release by Matt Parsons
I’m thrilled to announce that my book Production Haskell is released in alpha version. The first release has 240 pages of content, with much much more to come.
Starting Haskellings! by Monday Morning Haskell
In this week’s video blog, we’ll learn a little bit about using the
ghccommand on its own outside of Stack/Cabal, and then how to run it from within our program using the
Substitution and Equational Reasoning by Gil Mizrahi
In a lazy functional language where variables are immutable and effects are explicit, new powerful tools for understanding what programs mean become available - substitution and equational reasoning.

Game :: Dangerous update by Steven Tinsley
A while ago I posted here about Game :: Dangerous, which is a homebrew open source 3D game engine I develop written in about 3300 lines of Haskell and 450 lines of OpenGL Shading Language.
Getting recursively drunk with monoids by Simon Shine
Sam Horvath-Hunt blogged about modelling cocktails as monoids. This is a really cool example of FP modelling that I want to expand on.
Hacktoberfest 2020 by Tom Sydney Kerckhove
Hacktoberfest is happening again in 2020 and CS Syd will be participating again.
Write a simple loop with fix by Tatsuya Hirose
It is well known that recursive functions can be written as least fixed point of higher-order functions in domain theory.

Haskell Language Server version 0.5.0 by Luke Lau
0.5.0 comes with a new tactics plugin which provides case splitting, homomorphic case splitting, and lambda introduction.
jby Vanessa McHale
Marshal a limited subset of J arrays into Repa arrays.
silkscreen by Rob Rix
Silkscreen abstracts the pretty-printing interface of
Printertypeclass, allowing the definition of composable pretty-printer transformers, layering new behaviours onto the existing primitives.
stylish-haskell version 0.12.0.0 by Jasper Van der Jeugt
This patch swaps out the parsing library from
ghc-lib-parser, which gives us better compatibility with GHC.
