A Guide to GHC's Extensions - Jannis' Word Discounter
he latest official version of the Haskell standard was published in 2010. Since then, GHC, the most popular Haskell compiler, has grown almost 100 extensions which modify the language, sometimes quite drastically. Many of them have proven popular, to the point where it’s rare to find a library on Hackage that doesn’t use any extensions.

This is a problem for students of Haskell since most teaching materials only cover the base standard, leaving learners to fend for themselves in the extension jungle. This guide aims to make the journey a little easier. To that end, I sort GHC’s extensions into four tracks:

The basic track contains extensions that are generally simple and either commonly used or particularly useful for Haskell beginners. I also consider most of these extensions future-proof, in the sense that a future Haskell standard would probably include them without major changes.
The advanced track contains extensions that are useful, but either more complex or less popular than the ones in the basic track. This includes a bunch of ‘special interest’ extensions that are only relevant if you want to do particular things with Haskell.
The questionable track contains extensions that you probably shouldn’t use – either because they are actively unhelpful (badly designed or deprecated), or because they%2

Exploring Nix & Haskell Part 1: Project Setup – Christian Henry

a good time to pause and write about it before I either forget what I’ve learned
or forget why I found it difficult in the first place.
