lens-core: A placeholder for a future lens core package.

[ deprecated, lenses, library ] [ Propose Tags ]
Deprecated in favor of lens

Cabal 2.2 allows reexported modules, which will eventually allow us to consider splitting lens into smaller pieces.

Cabal 3.4 allows multiple public sub-libraries in a package Which may be a better plan, to avoid hackage namespace pollution.

I'm claiming this name to avoid rampant namespace confusion between lens:core and lens-core in the latter scenario and to allow progress on the former scenario.

For now, use lens.

Readme for lens-core-0.2

[back to package description]


This is a place-holder for a future lens core library, at the very least it will provide defense against confusion between lens:core and lens-core if we proceed with a cabal 3 based multiple sublibrary approach to making lens capable of building in smaller chuks.

For now, use lens.
