Snap: A Really Fast Haskell Web Framework

The new Snap web framework for Haskell is now packaged for Arch Linux.

You can install it automagically with, e.g.:

$ sudo bauerbill
            --trusted-users arch-haskell
            --build-as $USER
            --noconfirm
            --aur
            -S haskell-snap-server

And dive into the quick start:

$ cd /tmp
$ mkdir site
$ cd site
$ snap init
$ cabal install
$ site 8000

Then visit http://localhost:8000/ to serve up your new web project.
