text-ascii is a new, alternative library to handle ASCII text in Haskell, in a way that is total by default, with quasiquoters to build the literals. Its API is modeled after text’s, and it contains over 250 doctests (executable examples), which means that the examples are guaranteed to stay in sync with the code.

The creator is also focused on clarifying the shortcomings and corner cases of text, by providing high-grade documentation.
