curl-aeson: Communicate with HTTP service using JSON

This is a package candidate release! Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below). Please note that once a package has been published to the main package index it cannot be undone! Please consult the package uploading documentation for more information.

[maintain] [Publish]

A library for communicating with JSON over HTTP connection. Supports rich set of HTTP connectivity features provided by libcurl combined to the performance and elegancy of aeson.

All HTTP methods are supported. Instances of ToJSON and FromJSON typeclasses can be transferred via this library. Session cookies and other HTTP options may be passed to libcurl if needed.

This library is at its best when communicating with simple, non-standardized JSON interfaces. If you are implementing JSON-RPC compliant client or server, take a look at http://hackage.haskell.org/package/jmacro-rpc.

curl-aeson library for Haskell

This is a library for communicating with JSON over HTTP connection. It supports rich set of HTTP connectivity features provided by curl library combined to the performance and elegance of aeson.

Author: Joel Lehtonen joel.lehtonen+curlaeson@iki.fi

This library is at its best when communicating with simple, non-standardized JSON interfaces. If you are implementing JSON-RPC compliant client or server, take a look at another library.

Example

In this example we fetch latest bid and ask values from a Bitcoin exchange using their public API:

{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings #-}
import Control.Monad
import Data.Aeson
import Network.Curl.Aeson

ticker :: IO (Double,Double)
ticker = curlAesonGetWith p "https://bitcoin-central.net/api/v1/ticker/eur"
  where
    p (Object o) = do
      bid <- o .: "bid"
      ask <- o .: "ask"
      return (bid,ask)
    p _ = mzero

You may find more examples from package documentation.
