eksdee44645dBut how long where the three lines? Lines in Haskell can get pretty long.
nzeetee4925dSorry to disappoint.... It was just a metaphor.
But there were probably 20 lines of code and infinite fucking about to manage dependencies.
Apparently dependencies in Haskell sucks!
for comparison how many lines are needed in Java Script? 😄
vocuzi47115dAlan Turing must be proud.
@nzeetee Cabal is well named, it's a good way to end up in hell.
Things got a bit better with stack... But still, the truth is that package management is a hard problem. (Read this: https://medium.com/@sdboyer/...)
And what happens when you throw Haskell devs an unsolvable problem? They won't interpret it dynamically... They just label it unsolvable, throw a type error, respond with _|_, and they'll go on philosophizing about category theory while drinking whiskey in front of their fireplaces.
