Announcing: Unagi-bloomfilter

I just released a new Haskell library called unagi-bloomfilter that is up now on hackage. You can install it with:

$ cabal install unagi-bloomfilter

The library uses the bloom-1 variant from “Fast Bloom Filters and Their Generalization” by Yan Qiao, et al. I’ll try to write more about it when I have the time. Also I just gave a talk on things I learned working on the project last night at the New York Haskell User Group:

It was quite rough, but I was happy to hear from folks that found some interesting things to take away from it.

Thanks to Gershom for inviting me to speak, for my company Signal Vine for sponsoring my trip out, and to Yan Qiao for generously answering my silly questions and helping me understand the paper.

P.S. We’re hiring haskell developers

Signal Vine is an awesome group of people, with interesting technology and problems to solve, and we’re looking to grow the small development team. If you have some experience with haskell (you don’t have to be a guru) and are interested, please reach out to Jason or me at:
