Just out of curiosity, why did you choose to implement the Wasp compiler in Haskell?

It is a combination of reasons -> on one hand, brother and I have been playing with Haskell for some time and wanted to use it on a bigger project. On the other hand, Haskell is a really good fit for writing compilers, and has a good ecosystem of libraries that support the use case of building a compiler. If not in Haskell, I think we would probably consider doing it in TypeScript, which would make sense from the side that Wasp users are mostly coming from the JS background.
