You can add the bugs on github this will push me to solve it. At the
moment this is a POC. The principle is very simple. HTML / JS to call a
REST webservice (i use www.open-search-server.com). I can write the
front with Yesod or Snap but rewrite the search engine in haskell is
just impossible for me. Before I want to see if it useful or not.
