Welcome to Rel8! Rel8 is a Haskell library for interacting with PostgreSQL databases, built on top of the fantastic Opaleye library.
The main objectives of Rel8 are:
Conciseness: Users using Rel8 should not need to write boiler-plate code. By using expressive types, we can provide sufficient information for the compiler to infer code whenever possible.
Inferrable: Despite using a lot of type level magic, Rel8 aims to have excellent and predictable type inference.
Familiar: writing Rel8 queries should feel like normal Haskell programming.
- Writing queries with
The Haskell API documentation describes how individual functions are types are to be used.
