what sort of code you are tried to develop? visual designers are
successfully used for GUI design (not surprising) and SQL

pure parts of my haskell program is just functions which takes some
input (as arguments) and produce some output (as result). these
functions are built from other functions and i don't see why it should
be bad to represent this graphically instead of textually. moreover,
Haskell is known as hard-to-read language (at least for beginners)
due to its great power of function composition, and graphical
representation of complex expressions may make easier their understanding
