@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.
