HAML vs Haskell: What are the differences?

Developers describe HAML as "HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku". Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content. On the other hand, Haskell is detailed as "An advanced purely-functional programming language". .

HAML and Haskell can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Clean and simple" is the top reason why over 66 developers like HAML, while over 72 developers mention "Purely-functional programming " as the leading cause for choosing Haskell.

HAML is an open source tool with 3.44K GitHub stars and 544 GitHub forks. Here's a link to HAML's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, HAML has a broader approval, being mentioned in 113 company stacks & 40 developers stacks; compared to Haskell, which is listed in 33 company stacks and 47 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to HAML and Haskell?
Slim
Slim is easy to use for both beginners and professionals. Slim favors cleanliness over terseness and common cases over edge cases. Its interface is simple, intuitive, and extensively documented — both online and in the code itself.
PHP
Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
Java
Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!

#Inlinecss

When we rebooted our front-end stack earlier this year, we wanted to have a consolidated and friendly developer experience. Up to that point we were using Sass and BEM. There was a mix of HAML views, React components and Angular. Since our ongoing development was going to be exclusively in React, we wanted to shift to an inline styling library so the "wall of classnames" could be eliminated. The ever-shifting landscape of inline CSS libraries for React is sometimes difficult to navigate.

We decided to go with Glamorous for a few reasons:

1) Previous team experience with this library 2) We can write our styles in plain JavaScript (which brings many benefits) 3) It supports server-side rendering 4) It has great composition patterns

As you may or may not know, Glamorous has ceased active development and been mostly superseded by Emotion. We are planning to migrate to either Emotion or @styled-components in the near future, and I'll write another Stack Decision when we get there!

Why I am using Haskell in my free time?

I have 3 reasons for it. I am looking for:

Fun.

Improve functional programming skill.

Improve problem-solving skill.

Laziness and mathematical abstractions behind Haskell makes it a wonderful language.

It is Pure functional, it helps me to write better Scala code.

Highly expressive language gives elegant ways to solve coding puzzle.

Personally, I really like HAML. Not having to use open and close tags is a huge time saver. As a result, writing markup with HAML is much more pleasant. HAML essentially forces you to be very strict about spacing, organization, and structure. It also makes the markup easier to read. Protip: I use this pretty frequently: htmltohaml.com

Don't worry, be type-safe.
