simple-conduit alternatives and similar packages

Based on the "Conduit" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of simple-conduit or a related project?

Add another 'Conduit' Package

README

A brain-dead effectful streaming library, just to see how much we can get away with, using as little as possible. I.e., the one-legged centipede version of conduit. :-)

Features conspicuously lacking:

- Conduits are not Monads, which omits a lot of important use cases
- No leftovers

Features surprisingly present:

- Much simpler types; Void is no longer needed, for example
- No special operators are needed; conduit pipelines can be expressed
  using only function application ($)
- Performance beats conduit in simple cases (139ms vs. 259ms)
- Early termination by consumers
- Notification of uptream termination
- monad-control can be used for resource control
- Prompt finalization
- Sources are Monoids (though making it an instance takes more work)

What's interesting is that this library is simply a convenience for chaining monadic folds, and nothing more. I find it interesting how much of conduit can be expressed using only that abstraction.
