GHCJS is a Haskell to JavaScript compiler based on GHC. Among the improvements in the past year are official Cabal integration, support for CPU profiling and an overhaul of the ghcjs-base library. A recent addition is an experimental REPL, making it easier than ever to interact with Haskell in a browser or node.js environment. I will discuss the current state of the project, and explain what impact recent developments like ECMAScript 6 will have on how various Haskell concepts are translated to JavaScript. I'll demonstrate the GHCJS development tools and libraries with some examples of interacting with the JavaScript environment, with a focus on concurrency and event handling.
