Build a web application in Haskell
This week’s Haskell Weekly (issue 82) include an interesting slide of one developer sharing his experience rewriting a Rails project using Haskell. You can read the slide here:
I’m new to Haskell, however I have plenty experience building apps in Django and Rails, and all of the slides’ issue is very relevant in building production app. The slide make me worried I decide to start building a small, yet product-ready app to explore the Haskell eco system for my self.
In this project we’re going to build a Twitter clone. I will also focus on making it as close to production ready as possible, in the same spirit of the Rails tutorial https://www.railstutorial.org/book. The app will include
- Database model definition and querying
- Database migration
- Deployment, with continuous integration and delivery
- Testing: unit test and integration tests
- Logging and incident reporting
- Instrument and optimization
- Form validation
- RESTFul API and JSON serialize
- Authentication and authorization
- l10n and i18n
In the end of each week there will be a summary post. Stay tune!
