About

This is th-format, a Haskell package implementing support for format strings using Template Haskell quasi quoters. It requires the GHC extension QuasiQuotes to be enabled. Parsing is implemented using Earley.

This package is BSD3 licensed.

Examples

Using th-format, you can use naive variable interpolation instead of verbosely concatenating strings manually. Thus, instead of

putStrLn $ "Client \"" ++ show client ++ "\" has requested resource \"" ++ show resource ++ "\" at date " ++ show date ++ "."

one can directly write:

putStrLn $ [fmt|Client "$client" has requested resource "$resource" at date $date|]

There are currently two supported ways of interpolation:

  1. Simple interpolation, as in [fmt|Variable foo contains $foo|].
  2. Expression interpolation, as in [fmt|The toggle is ${if toggle then ("on" :: Text) else "off"}|]
