laika: Minimalistic type-checked compile-time template engine

[ library, mit, unclassified ] [ Propose Tags ]

The library integrates with Haskell's new first-class records.

It inherits a remarkable quality from the dogs: unlike most other template engines at compile time it barks at you whenever you do anything wrong in your templates. Hence the title (from Russian "lai" means "bark"). Also it commemorates Laika, the hero dog, which became the first animal to orbit Earth and died in space.

This library is in experimental state. Detailed documentation will arrive with the first stable release.
