About WebGear

Webgear is a framework to build HTTP APIs in Haskell. WebGear helps to run these APIs as a web application, automatically generate OpenAPI documentation, and extract other static information about the APIs in general.

WebGear is built on a philosophy that users need not be experts on advanced Haskell features to use a web framework. While WebGear internally uses many advanced language extensions, considerable effort is spent in exposing only a small portion of it in user APIs so that you need not be an expert to use them. It also has comprehensive documentation and examples that shortens the learning curve.

WebGear is very flexible, allowing you to build your project the way you want. It is very easy to extend or completely replace most of the components to make it work the way you need it to.
