[Haskell-cafe] Blog platform written in Haskell

That is the direction that clckwrks has naturally ended up heading in. In
the first version, it had blog stuff builtin. But as things got refactored
the blog/cms stuff just became another general purpose plugin -- not part
of the core.

In fact, the authentication layer is even taking a step in that direction.
It is still hardwired into the core, but it uses the clckwrks plugin

At its core, clckwrks is just a general framework with allows you to
dynamically load and unload components and themes. But it does not put many
constraints on what those plugins need to do. I have taken existing
standalone web apps and turned them into clckwrks plugins with little

In theory, you can save development time though by building a web
application that builds on top of existing plugins -- such as a media
plugin, cms plugin, payment plugin, etc. That way you can focus on the
unique aspects of your site instead of wasting a lot of time on the boring
mechanics of dealing with payment processing, serving files from S3, etc.
