Well, there are FRP (functional reactive programming) libraries and
there are GUI (graphical user interface) libraries. While the two go
well together, these are really two separate concepts. Which one of the
two are you looking for?
reactive-banana = FRP only
reactive-banana-wx = connects a GUI library and an FRP library
threepenny = mainly GUI, but includes a small FRP part
I will try to make the distinction more clear on the project homepage
(to which the github pages link), but I can't guarantee that there will
be less confusion for people who are completely new to these ideas.
