  1. FYI, the facebook platform has been very unstable since the recent update. So if you get timeouts or other wackiness, it is almost certainly facebook’s fault. Probably because they used PHP instead of Haskell 😉

      congrats! as a haskell coder who works at facebook this is awesome to see. maybe when happstack hits 1.0 we can switch over.

    Well done stepcut. This is indeed a milestone for Haskell web dev.

  3. Looks like FB is doing the buggy thing, because i’m getting a blank content area on that url. =(

    Is the code somewhere public? I’m sure I’m not the only curious facebooking haskeller.

    Any plans for a facebook-api package on Hackage?

  7. The haskell-facebook api is here:

    It is complete alpha quality right now, undocumented, missing features, and likely to change. But, useful none-the-less.
