It’s postgresql-simple. That’s why you couldn’t find it.
I haven’t looked at Opaleye. Thanks for the recommendation!
Thanks! Here’s a link: postgresql-simple. I couldn’t find it because a Hackage search for “postgres” didn’t return it.
postgresql-simple is pretty much just basic bindings to libpq while opaleye is a larger library for building up SQL queries programmatically.
Acid State is so damn cool. I really think the world needs more libraries that enable fault-tolerant computation like that for other languages. Engineers often have such an irrational fear of the disk, and the things they build just fall over in downstream failure/backpressure situations or traffic spikes when they accumulate too much memory. A transactional persistent log can work so well and when you’re writing and consuming sequentially it’s extremely efficient.
I’ve started porting Clay to PureScript: purescript-css
Hell yes! Thank you.
Gotta say, I don’t really see the benefit of Clay over Sass or Less…
Clay is built for the purpose. A benefit is that you have a full programming language and composable operators to create CSS. It’s much more powerful than LESS, which is a benefit and a drawback.
