Haskell Alternatives

    Haskell is described as 'advanced purely-functional programming language. An open-source product of more than twenty years of cutting-edge research, it allows rapid development of robust, concise, correct software' and is a popular app in the Development category. There are more than 25 alternatives to Haskell for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Windows, Mac, BSD and Android. The best alternative is Python, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Haskell are Java (Free Personal, Open Source), PHP (Free, Open Source), C (programming language) (Free, Open Source) and C++ (Free, Open Source).

      Python vs Haskell opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Python is still a legitimate alternative to Haskell, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      While they can be both used for programming all kind of software and even look a bit similar, they are totally different in core functionality. Speaking of static typing vs dynamic typing, no one would want to switch to a dynamic typed language after experiencing Haskell.

      Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class-based, object-oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible.

      Java does not support tail call optimization-- an extremely important FP feature. Java didn't even have lambdas until recently. Java does not run natively like Haskell. Java almost requires OOP whereas Haskell is functional. Java's type system is very different (even inferior) from Haskell's.

    1. C is a general-purpose computer programming language. C is one of the most widely used programming languages of all time.
      C (programming language) vs Haskell opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      C does not guarantee type safety, does not guarantee immutability nor thread safety, does not have functional quality of life improvements like list comprehensions etc.

    2. C++ is a statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm, compiled, general-purpose, powerful programming language. It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises a combination of both high-level and low-level language features.


    3. Go, also called golang, is a programming language initially developed at Google in 2007 by Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, and Ken Thompson.
    4. Featuring - algebraic data types - pattern matching - closures - type inference - zero-cost abstractions - guaranteed memory safety - concurrency without data races - minimal runtime - efficient C bindings
      Rust vs Haskell opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Data in Rust is immutable by default which matches Haskell's behavior. Rust's type system is similar to Haskell's. Rust support tail call optimization. Rust's option type supports basically the same error handling paradigm as Haskell's Maybe. Rust does not really use classes, but rather supports the definition of a data type and functions/methods that operate on that data type. Rust and Haskell both support pattern matching. Rust and Haskell both compile to native.

      C# is a multi-paradigm programming language encompassing strong typing, imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented (class-based), and component-oriented programming disciplines.
    5. Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. Ruby originated in Japan during the mid-1990s and was initially developed and designed by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto.
