Thanks for the link! (Never seen this before)
Ideally, I would be happy to be able to write in Haskell a complete
to run in the Browser and also a standalone app.
In Python world this is already done with Pyjamas (http://pyjs.org/) - "a
Rich Internet Application (RIA) Development Platform for both Web and
Also from Pyjamas site:
and a Widget Set API.
Pyjamas Desktop is the Desktop version of Pyjamas
Pyjamas Desktop allows the exact same python web application source code to
be executed as a standalone desktop application (running under Python)
instead of being stuck in a Web browser."
I wonder if somebody works on similar Haskell "Rich Internet Application
(RIA) Development Platform" ?
Any ideas, comments on implementation of such system in Haskell? What
existing Haskell GUI libraries can be used for a desktop GUI, etc.?
