What is Yesod?
Yesod believes in the philosophy of making the compiler your ally, not your enemy. We use the type system to enforce as much as possible, from generating proper links, to avoiding XSS attacks, to dealing with character encoding issues. In general, if your code compiles, it works. And instead of declaring types everywhere you let the compiler figure them out for you with type inference.
Yesod is a tool in the Frameworks (Full Stack) category of a tech stack.
Yesod is an open source tool with 2.2K GitHub stars and 349 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Yesod's open source repository on GitHub
