1 What is it?

Reactive banana displaying trigger-happy Behavior.

Reactive-banana is a library for Functional Reactive Programming (FRP).

Support the project with a small donation: flattr-badge-large.png

FRP offers an elegant and concise way to express interactive programs such as graphical user interfaces, animations, computer music or robot controllers. Thus, the reactive-banana library promises to avoid the spagethetti code commonly used in traditional GUI technologies.

The specific goal of the library is to provide a solid foundation.

  • Users can finally use FRP to program graphical user interfaces as the library can be hooked into any existing event-based framework like wxHaskell or Gtk2Hs. A plethora of example code helps with getting started.
  • Programmers interested in implementing FRP will have a reference for a simple semantics with a working implementation.
  • It features an efficient implementation. No more spooky time leaks, predicting space & time usage should be straightforward.

Feedback is welcome, I want to hear from you!

3 Fake Testimonials

"In the programming-language world, one rule of survival is simple: dance or die. This library makes dancing easy." – Simon Banana Jones

"About the use of language: it is impossible to sharpen a pencil with a blunt axe. You should try reactive-banana instead." — Event Dijkstra

"When I need a bullet event, I can just trigger it." — Billy the Reactive Banana
