Creating a macOS app with Haskell and Swift

Forums > Swift

Hello all! I’d like to share one of my recent successful endeavours into creating native applications with Haskell. I’ve started researching interoperability (with batteries) between Haskell and Swift, to be able to leverage Apple’s SwiftUI library for designing native applications with Cupertino-approved UI while implementing the data and logic of the application in Haskell.

So far it’s going great. I’ve written a preliminary blogpost on how to setup an XCode project and Haskell library such that functions from Haskell can be called at all from Swift (dealing with linking, headers, etc.). The part about calling Haskell functions from Swift easily will come in due time in later iterations of this blogpost series. As a little spoiler I’ll add that the new Swift 5.9 Macro system and Template Haskell go a looong way.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to post the link to the blog, so instead I added a link to the github repo that is associated with the blogpost: https://github.com/alt-romes/haskell-x-swift-project-steps

Happy to have your feedback, Rodrigo
