Running Haskell in a browser with GHCJS

A session at mloc.js JavaScript Conference 2013

  • Hamish Mackenzie
  • Luite Stegeman

Saturday 16th February, 2013

3:05pm to 3:50pm (CET)

It is now possible to use Haskell and WebKit to make applications that can run standalone or can be compiled to JavaScript with GHCJS to run in a browser. We will have a look at how GHCJS is able to provide Haskell features like Threads and MVars. How to use Haskell to manipulate the DOM and how to integrate with the existing JavaScript libraries. If we have time we will also discuss some of the techniques GHCJS uses to improve performance, such as lazy loading of code.
