Haskell vs Markdown: What are the differences?

What is Haskell? An advanced purely-functional programming language. .

What is Markdown? Text-to-HTML conversion tool/syntax for web writers, by John Gruber. Markdown is two things: (1) a plain text formatting syntax; and (2) a software tool, written in Perl, that converts the plain text formatting to HTML.

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

"Purely-functional programming " is the top reason why over 72 developers like Haskell, while over 345 developers mention "Easy formatting" as the leading cause for choosing Markdown.

Asana, Code School, and GoSquared are some of the popular companies that use Markdown, whereas Haskell is used by thoughtbot, DoxIQ, and Wagon. Markdown has a broader approval, being mentioned in 756 company stacks & 718 developers stacks; compared to Haskell, which is listed in 33 company stacks and 47 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Haskell and Markdown?
Scala
Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
Clojure
Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
Erlang
Some of Erlang's uses are in telecoms, banking, e-commerce, computer telephony and instant messaging. Erlang's runtime system has built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance. OTP is set of Erlang libraries and design principles providing middle-ware to develop these systems.
Rust
Rust is a systems programming language that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and complete control over the lifecycle of memory.
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.

We’re using Markdown parsers for Reviews, Blog Posts, and Stack Description (the text you’re reading right now). We’re using Bootstrap Markdown for content input (except for reviews) and RedCarpet for rendering in certain places.

Markdown represents a highly portable and lightweight text formatting. I had converted all of my Wordpress posts to Markdown prior to migrating over to Jekyll and eventually to Hugo. The fact that many generators support Markdown means that my content remains portable regardless of the platform/engine I use.

What you see is not what you get, never it is.

Documentation is better in Markdown format. You don’t need anything special to read it.

It is compact, portable, comparable.

Markdown is my text file format of choice.

Because it is almost an effortless markup language without ever having to write an HTML tag. Of course, you'll want to use it in environments that make it look pretty (GitHub, etc.)

Using StackEdit to edit markdown files for blog roll and about sections. MD files are stored in Google Drive and pushed to GH pages through StackEdit.

Don't worry, be type-safe.
