[Haskell-cafe] [ANN] IHaskell -- Haskell for Interactive Computing (via IPython)

Hey everyone!

I'm excited to announce the initial release of IHaskell, a Haskell language
kernel for IPython:


IHaskell allows IPython to communicate with the kernel and evaluate Haskell
code. This enables using IPython interfaces such as console, qtconsole, and
most importantly, IPython notebook with Haskell. The IPython Notebook
supports image, HTML, and LaTeX output, which enables things such as
Javascript viewers for complex data structures or embedded graphs and makes
it a great platform for interactive computing.

You can take a look at the code and install instructions here:


A general overview of the architecture is available as well:


Contributing: IHaskell is a very young project, but one that I think would
make a great contribution to the Haskell community. There's still tons and
tons left to do before it's on par with what IPython notebook is capable
of, so if you're at all interested in contributing, please get in touch!
I've tried to keep everything well-documented and readable, but I will also
be happy to answer questions about the code myself.

If you find any bugs or edge cases or installation difficulties, please
send me an email or create a Github issue for it!
