Eta - Modern Haskell on the JVM
The Eta programming language is a dialect of Haskell which runs on the JVM and has the following goals:
- accessibility for beginners from imperative languages, especially Java
- compatibility with GHC 7.10.3's Haskell.
Visit eta-lang.org for instructions on getting started.
Active development is taking place in the following areas:
- Concurrent runtime
- Interactive REPL
- Metaprogramming (TemplateHaskell support)
- Core library support
- Boilerplate generation for Java FFI imports
- Platform-specific installers

We would like to specifically thank the following groups/people:
- GHC HQ for providing a base for us to work on.
- Alois Cochard for his codec-jvm package that we use for code generation.
- Christopher Wells for his JAR packaging utility.
- Brian McKenna for his bug fixes in the codegen/runtime and implementation of basic IO facilities.
- Sibi for helping out with porting packages and setting up Travis.
- Anton Gushcha for giving detailed bug reports on the Java FFI.
- Balaji Rao for contributing to the design & implementation for some parts of the FFI.
- Javier Neira for making Eta work on Windows and testing extensively across multiple Windows verisons.
Thank you guys!
