Nice reddit thread on quick prototyping of ideas in #haskell. https://amp.reddit.com/r/haskell/comments/7sr8k7/fast_prototyping_how_to_experiences/
@vu3rdd That top comment makes me never want to try to prototype anything in Haskell. Is it a joke?
@seanl :-) I find algebraic data types and a bag of libraries (like vectors, containers) quite pleasant to work with. I haven't yet learned to appreciate the lens. Also ease of refactoring with the aid of the compiler can help hack something together quickly and refactor later.
Give it a spin next time!
@vu3rdd Yeah I just meant all the stuff in that comment should be done by an IDE.
@seanl yes, that's true. The current tooling is not perfect. It is slowly catching up.
