Hazel Grove

We are designing Hazel, a structure editor rooted in the principles of type theory.

Projects

Research Vision

Our research vision is described in the following paper, which will be presented at SNAPL 2017 in early May.

Hazelnut

To start, we have developed a core calculus, Hazelnut, that establishes 1) principles for reasoning statically in the presence of holes and type inconsistencies, and 2) a semantics of typed edit actions.

Research Paper (POPL 2017)

Hazelnut is described in a research paper published at POPL 2017.

Mechanization

We have mechanized the metatheory of Hazelnut using the Agda proof assistant.

Implementation

HZ is a simple reference implementation of Hazelnut, written in OCaml and compiled to JavaScript using js_of_ocaml.

Hazelnut Live

We are currently working to understand how one might run the incomplete programs that Hazelnut produces, and how one might interact with these running programs.

Workshop Presentation

An extended abstract and annotated slides for a talk on this topic given by Ian at the Off the Beaten Track (OBT) workshop at POPL 2017 are available.
