Even though Netwire seems to be the library of choice for your purposes,
it is not exactly beginner-friendly.  Heinrich Apfelmus' reactive-banana
library is much easier to get into, so you may want to start with that
one before approaching Netwire.

In any case, I can't really recommend Animas or Yampa.  They are a proof
of concept, but in real world applications they proved to be unfortunate
choices, which was the original motivation for me to write Netwire in
the first place.
