timing-convenience, a Haskell package

I’ve been working on packages to make it easier to write in my favorite scripting language, Haskell. The first to make it on Hackage is timing-convenience.

Install as usual:

cabal install timing-convenience

Then you can get the time three days ago:

import Data.Time
import Data.Time.Convenience

main = timeFor 3 Days Ago >>= putStrLn . show

(See why I call it a scripting language? I’d like to see Perl be that obtuse!)

I used this in my script that generates my This Week in Open Source series of blog posts on the thoughtbot blog. I also made use of my github package, which is still under development.
