These all use light-weight green threads and so do not require you to use CPS (continuation passing style) in your code...

Haskell.

Its funny, was listening to nodeup podcast and they were admitting that if they can't do it in js, they'll just put another hack in so they can.

Hey Hamish,

Just remembered I never replied to your email you sent me ages ago.

Whats the maturity of these frameworks like? It seems like Yesod gets a lot of good press, with Snap coming in second. I'd not heard of happstack before but looks like its been around around....

You mentioned in your email you work on Leksah, does it provide any support for these web frameworks at all? Or does it limit itself to just being a "haskell IDE"?

Mark

I have only used Happstack and Yesod, they are both great.  Snap is supposed to be very nice too.  You can mix and match a fair bit.  For instance Happstack's Acid State library is very cool and I like Yesod's Shakespearean Templates (some Haskell purists do not)...

The only place we have gone out of our way to support any of them is to add syntax highlighting for Yesod's Shakespearean Templates.
