Haskell resources

with 3 comments

As one of my new year resolution, I started to learn a new language: Haskell. Why? It is different. It is so different from most of the languages that I knew, that at first the syntax seems so unnatural. However, after a few try-out, I cannot help thinking that I may be able to do something really serious using this brilliant language.

Here are some resources, for my own convenience, and for yours in case you are also a geeky person: center of the Haskell world

GlasGow Haskell Compiler   The de facto state of art Haskell compiler 

Real World Haskell   You can read this fantastic e-book on-line for FREE! Great for an introduction with just enough details

Haskell Wiki   We just can’t get enough of wiki’s!


Haskell’    The “research branch” of haskell language. You definitely want to check it out if you are interested in the future of Haskell.

Haskell 98 Report    The definitive resource of almost everything about the language. 

Hoogle    The Haskell API search engine which searches through GHC documentation (I might be wrong on this). (Thanks to randomdeterminism for reminding me of this important one).

Hayoo    Another API search engine which searches through HackageDB (I might be wrong on this too.)

HackageDB    Haskell package database, a gold mine where you can always find treasure and pleasure

Books on Google   Books search using google.

Yale Haskell Group     These people had involved in the development and implementation of the language from the very beginning.

  1. Also check out which is good to search for functions if you only remember the name or to search all functions with a type signature.

    • thanks for the link. There are actually other resources. I will make a longer list this weekend. However, compared to other languages such as Python, Haskell info seem to be relatively less google-friendly. and I can be very wrong on this.
