[arch-haskell] Snap web framework - not in ArchHaskell?
Wed Oct 9 09:54:33 UTC 2013
Thank you kindly, Ramana.
I have to put quite a lot of work (learning) into Haskell before I would
be of any real use, I was simply interested in playing around with snap
as one of the avenues of learning. I quite like the philosophy of snap.
I'll certainly be in contact once I can meaningfully contribute (or
meaningfully ask questions!).
