Hey all,

Just wanted to post a quick note here about a package I've started with 
various little utilities that I find generally useful enough to be used 
across different yesod sites.

The best explanation is probably by way of example, so here's what it 
provides so far:

  Y.G.Gravatar : fetch a gravatar image for an email address
  Y.G.Links    : concise internal/external link-widgets
  Y.G.Markdown : a slightly altered version of yesod-markdown 
  Y.G.Paginate : paginate a large list of items
  Y.G.Search   : a type class engine behind search pages
  Y.G.Shorten  : a type class to shorten a variety of...
  Y.G.Time     : prints UTCTime as "one hour ago", etc

That last one was taken from haskellers.com (hope you don't mind 

The package has been on hackage[1] for a bit and the source is on 
github[2]. Feel free to contribute if you've got your own goodies.
