That's awesome. Reading though your thoughts in the article I would agree that it looks more as a Java-like program. But it's great that Haskell can accommodate this kind of programming style although it tends to be unmaintainable.

I think the true power of Haskell shines when you leverage monads, lenses and the other functional programming tools.

I tend to write more articles to make it easier to read and understand Haskell especially coming from a Imperative/OOP background.

It would be interesting to see how you would refactor the code of the project to demonstrate a more functional approach to application design, if it makes sense for such a small codebase. Maybe I need a larger project to experiment with functional tools.
