I wrote this using reflex-dom, to check the capabilities of Haskell for the web. Some of it is still painful (long build times, no way to use repl/ghicd, bloated exes, extremely scant documentation), while writing FRP is alluring.

Joachim Breitner wrote on the matter and provides some relief.

I wrote an article on travel friendly music keyboards.

animascii (2018-03-16 06:22:00)

I finally published animascii, a textfile-based ascii animator.

Writing it was a nice experience, making me acquainted with some lesser-known parts of cabal workflow.

Enjoy, feedback and bug reports welcome!

Can I read, Daddy? (2018-01-07 08:42:00)

The resolution for 2018 is to read more good books. But why start with War and Peace, when you can have a gentler foray into becoming a bibliophile?

Short good books.

Aeolus (2017-05-19 07:35:00)

Last weak I discovered a terrific Linux/OSX organ emulator, Aeolus. In the words of the author, Fons Adriaensen, the aim is “to arrive at a synthesised (i.e. not sampled) pipe organ sound that should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it.”

I can vouch for both the “good enough” and “enjoy playing it” parts. I tested the synthesis playing a small choralprelude by Walther on a single midi keyboard (errors mine):
