#Haskell URL

Repository | Issue Tracker | Hackage

HURL resolves URLs to the Text or ByteString data they reference, alongside it's MIMEtype. It is capable of resolving data to the charset specified by the MIMEtype, and will convert any errors to response data.

It's main function is Data.Network.Fetch.fetchURL, which takes a "Session" initialized by Data.Network.Fetch.newSession.

#Supported URI schemes

HURL can resolve the following URL schemes:

Each of these protocols can individually be turned on or off at compiletime.

#Desired URI schemes

Integration of the following URL schemes would be appreciated:

  • ftp(s): - Outdated Haskell implementations exists.
  • magnet: - Outdated/incomplete Haskell implementation exists.
  • gopher: - Would want to pair with a Markdown-to-HTML parser to restore semantics lost in Rhapsode's conversion to audio.
  • xdg-icon: - Custom, looks up images according to icon-theme-spec
  • idsc:/mdsc: - being developed by @cwebber@octodon.social.
  • Dispatch to apps on Mac OS X, Windows, Android, and/or iOS.
