Haskell bindings for SFML
« on: December 29, 2015, 02:56:22 pm »
I am in now way related or a maintainer of this package, I just happened to stumble across it.

Apparently there's someone who's maintaining a package of Haskell bindings for SFML. Interesting to say the least! I haven't looked very much into it myself, let's just say Haskell is not my strongest point *sob*.

Obviously no work has been put into handling the threading and networking parts, because, like the author says, Haskell has better built-in solutions for this.

Have a look! It's available on Github and as a package on Hackage!
Github: https://github.com/SFML-haskell/SFML
Hackage: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/SFML

There's enough contact information there should someone want to reach out to the author.

Seems like Jeanne-Kamikaze is the author :)

I contacted him to ask whether he wants the binding to be listed on the website.

By the way, there was also an early attempt to port SFML 1 to Haskell, but the project has been unmaintained for 4 years.
