Do you think we are missing an alternative of typed-wire or a related project?
Language independent type-safe communication
Motivation / WIP Notice
Here are some details on the library:
- I wrote this because I have more and more micro-service architectures. The simplest form is a Haskell (REST-Api) Backend talking with an Elm/Purescript/... frontend. I got really tired of defining all data types in Haskell, Elm, PureScript, ... and writing JSON parsing/serialization functions for them in all languages. typed-wire attempts to solve this/my problem: It generates type definitions and matching JSON parsing/serialization for all target languages from a definition file. It can also generate API definitions, but this feature is not finished yet.
- It's not ready yet - it is still missing some planned features, testing and documentation
- It's used in production at one of my projects to ensure DRY type-safe communication between an Elm client and a Haskell server (www.bahn-buddy.de , german)
- If anyone thinks this is cool, needs it too and would like to help out please shoot me an email :-)
