DistributionThe Fudgets library is available for download free of charge.
Fudgets was mostly developed in 1991-1996. After that, only maintenance work and some minor additions have been made. It works with the Haskell Platform.
As a GUI toolkit, Fudgets is built on top of Xlib from the X11 Window system, which means it works best on GNU/Linux and other Unix-like system that use the X11 Window system natively. Fudgets can be used on other systems as long as there is some X11 compatibility layer. For example, you can compile and use Fudgets on macOS if you install XQuartz.
The most recent snapshot of the source code is
(which is a Cabal package). Some notes about this snapshot:
- Tested with ghc-7.6.3, ghc-7.10.2, ghc-8.4.4, ghc-8.6.5 and ghc-8.10.2.
- Eliminated the dependecy on the old
hbc-librarypackage, so a simple
cabal installcommand should now be enough to compile and install fudgets from source.
- There are
.debpackages for Ubuntu 20.04, in case you want to use the library or try the demos without compiling everything from source.
- the Fudget Library Reference Manual has been updated to match the current sources.
For other recent snapshots and more details, see
- 1997-present: numerous snapshots available.
- May 2000: version h13u available. It works with HBC 0.9999.5 (which has not been officially released) and GHC 4.06. (To compile with GHC, you also need hmake. The installation procedure for the GHC version has not been automated.)
