Data types

data PackageMeta Source

A data type representing the data stored in a bower.json package manifest file.

Note that the ToJSON / FromJSON instances don't exactly match; for example, it is not always the case that decoding from JSON and then encoding to JSON will give you the exact same JSON that you started with. However, if you start with a PackageMeta value, encode to JSON, and then decode, you should always get the same value back.

data PackageName Source

A valid package name for a Bower package.

mkPackageName :: String -> Either PackageNameError PackageName Source

A smart constructor for a PackageName. It ensures that the package name satisfies the restrictions described at


decodeFile :: FilePath -> IO (Either (ParseError BowerError) PackageMeta) Source

Read and attempt to decode a bower.json file.

asPackageMeta :: Parse BowerError PackageMeta Source

A parser for bower.json files, using the aeson-better-errors package.
