ANNOUNCE: Turbinado V0.1

Posted to the Haskell mailing list:

I'd like to announce Turbinado, a very young and raw MVC web framework
for Haskell.  While the framework doesn't exactly copy Ruby on Rails,
it certainly rhymes...  It's very early days for Turbinado, but the
framework is moving along nicely.  There are still issues to be ironed
out and architectural details to be decided, so help/contribution would be
very much appreciated.

Turbinado can be found at:
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.turbinado.org/" target="_top">http://www.turbinado.org</a>

The source can be found at:
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://github.com/alsonkemp/turbinado/tree/master" target="_top">http://github.com/alsonkemp/turbinado/tree/master</a>
(see the /App directory for the code for www.turbinado.org)

Turbinado:
* Provides a fast web server (based on HSP; see
<a rel="nofollow" href="http://turbinado.org/Home/Performance%29;" target="_top">http://turbinado.org/Home/Performance);</a>
* Provides a straightforward organization for your website (courtesy
of Rails);
* Uses simple HTML-like templating (courtesy of HSX);
* Is easily extensible (courtesy of an Environment built out of _Map
String Dynamic_, not the most type-safe of beasties; Help!);
* Configurable routing (see Config/Routes.hs).

Turbinado is currently lacking:
* Documentation...
* An easy install...
* A database ORM based on HDBC (visibly incomplete and ugly in
Turbinado/Database/ORM);
* Many more HTML helpers;
* Controllers for partials (lightweight "controls" ala ASP.NET);
* Strong error reporting and handling;
* Lots of functionality and plugins;
* ... the favorite feature that you want to develop for Turbinado ...
