The first vaguely usable version of Hubris is out on Hackage now.
* now capable of building dynamic libs so that you don't need to
have GHC installed on the production server.
* extensible marshalling through a pair of typeclasses
* automatically generated interface to Haskell from Ruby rather
than the hacked-up manual packing/unpacking solution the first version
hubris :module => 'Data.ByteString', :packages => ['bytestring']
It requires the ghc 6.12 release candidate, and if you're on Mac,
you'll need to apply the cabal patch at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/hackage/ticket/591
and the ghc patch at http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/3550
You'll need to follow the installation instructions at http://github.com/mwotton/Hubris
, as it needs a little extra info about ruby headers etc.
Let me know if it works, if it breaks, if I've missed an obvious
better way, if it's at all useful to you...
