Dog Park Snaplet Tutorial Henry Laxen March 15, 2013

This purpose of this document is two-fold. One is to help me remember what and why I did, and second, to provide to you, gentle reader, a complete and relative simple example of writing a web application using the wonderful Snap Framework in Haskell.


Here at Lake Chapala we have a wonderful new dog park where we bring our big dobie baby, Athena, to blow off some steam. It is very handy to know in advance who is going or not going to the dog park, so I decided to create a small web app that lets people know.


One of the main goals was that I wanted everything to be as simple as possible, both for me as the administrator, and for the users who were not very computer literate. Thus I decided that:
  1. I would store the data in a format that would make it easy to edit in emacs.
  2. I would make authentication brain dead simple, and thus highly insecure
  3. As easy as I could think of to use the system, hence cookies and email
So with that as background, lets start at the bottom and look at the Types.

First we get the extensions and imports out of the way:

«types imports»
{-# LANGUAGE DeriveDataTypeable #-}
{-# LANGUAGE FlexibleContexts  #-}
{-# LANGUAGE GeneralizedNewtypeDeriving #-}
{-# LANGUAGE MultiParamTypeClasses #-}
{-# LANGUAGE OverloadedStrings #-}
{-# LANGUAGE PackageImports #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TypeSynonymInstances #-}
{-# LANGUAGE TemplateHaskell #-}
{-# LANGUAGE RankNTypes  #-}
{-# OPTIONS_GHC -fno-warn-missing-signatures #-}

module DogPark.Types where
import Control.Monad.IO.Class ( MonadIO )
import Control.Monad.State.Class ( MonadState )
import Data.Text ( Text )
import Data.Time ( UTCTime )
import Data.ByteString.Char8 ( ByteString )
import qualified Data.Map as M ( empty )
import Data.Map ( Map )
import Data.Default ( Default(..) )
import Lens.Micro.Platform ( makeLenses )
import Snap.Snaplet.Heist ( Heist, SnapletISplice )
import Snap ( Handler, Snaplet )
import Snap.Snaplet.Session ( SessionManager )
import Data.IORef ( IORef )
import           Control.Exception.Lifted
One hint I can give you is after you have finished coding, run your module through ghc with the -ddump-minimal-imports option. If the import list is too long, I leave it out, but if it is small I use it so that I can remember what came from where.

At the very bottom is the Message type. The TooSoon message came about because sometimes users got confused or thought that their message wasn't sent, and went ahead and clicked on the message button again. I now detect that, and rather than spamming the users, tell the sender that his message has indeed been sent, and it is not necessary to send another. The timeout is 5 minutes.

«types Message»
data Message = IAmGoing | IAmNotGoing | TooSoon | Custom Text | NoMessage
  deriving (Show, Read, Ord, Eq)

showMessage :: Message -> Text
showMessage IAmGoing    = "we are going to the dog park"
showMessage IAmNotGoing = "we are NOT going to the dog park"
showMessage TooSoon = "I have already notified everyone, don't worry"
showMessage NoMessage = "No Message"
showMessage (Custom b)  = b

instance Default Message where
  def = NoMessage
A dog has an id, a name, and perhaps a photo. If the photo is missing, I output the name instead.
«types Dog»
type DogId = Int
data Dog = Dog {
    _dogId        :: DogId
  , _dogName      :: Text
  , _dogImage     :: Maybe Text }
  deriving (Ord, Eq)

showsDog :: Dog -> String -> String
showsDog (Dog a b c) =
  showString    "Dog "
  . shows a . (' ':) 
  . shows b . (' ':) 
  . shows c . ('\n':) 

readsDog :: String -> [(Dog,String)]
readsDog s =
  [ (Dog a b c , rest) |
        ("Dog", x1) <- lex s,
      (a, x2) <- reads x1,
      (b, x3) <- reads x2,
      (c, rest) <- reads x3
instance Show Dog where
  showsPrec _ = showsDog

instance Read Dog where     
  readsPrec _ = readsDog

instance Default Dog where
  def = Dog 0 "" Nothing

The owner field is a little more complicated. Some people have multiple email address, hence the list of Text for the email. Also, before the owner's first visit, the _ownerRecent field is Nothing, since he hasn't make any recent visits. The show and read instances make it nice for emacs. This and the Recent type are the only data that are stored.
«types Owner»
type OwnerId = Int
data Owner = Owner {
    _ownerId         :: OwnerId
  , _ownerName       :: Text
  , _ownerImage      :: Maybe Text
  , _ownerEmail      :: [Text]
  , _ownerRemind     :: Bool -- True if wants daily reminder
  , _ownerWantsEmail :: Bool -- True if wants messages
  , _ownerRecent     :: Maybe Recent
  }  deriving (Ord, Eq)

showsOwner :: Owner -> String -> String
showsOwner (Owner a b c d e f g) =
  showString    "Owner "
  . shows a . (' ':) 
  . shows b . (' ':) 
  . shows c . (' ':) 
  . shows d . (' ':) 
  . shows e . (' ':) 
  . shows f . (' ':) 
  . shows g

readsOwner :: String -> [(Owner,String)]
readsOwner s =
  [ (Owner a b c d e f g, rest) |
        ("Owner", x1) <- lex s,
      (a, x2) <- reads x1,
      (b, x3) <- reads x2,
      (c, x4) <- reads x3,
      (d, x5) <- reads x4,
      (e, x6) <- reads x5,
      (f, x7) <- reads x6,
      (g, rest) <- reads x7
instance Show Owner where
  showsPrec _ = showsOwner

instance Read Owner where     
  readsPrec _ = readsOwner

instance Default Owner where
  def = Owner 0 "" Nothing [] False False Nothing

The HasId class is shared by owners and their dogs. It gives us a way to get from an id (Int) to name and Maybe Text (photo) of the object. This is handy for using the same code to disply button widgets and Text describing an owner or their dog.
«types HasId»
class HasId a where
  theId :: a -> Int

instance HasId Dog where  
  theId = _dogId

instance HasId Owner where  
  theId = _ownerId

class HasId a  => HasButton a where  
  buttonName  :: a -> Text
  buttonImage :: a -> Maybe Text

instance HasButton Dog where
  buttonName    = _dogName
  buttonImage   = _dogImage

instance HasButton Owner where
  buttonName    = _ownerName
  buttonImage   = _ownerImage

People and the dogs travel in packs. Hence when an owner decides to come to the park, he may be accompanied by other owners, and some or all of his dogs. Hence the list fields in the Recent data type.
«types Recent»
data Recent = Recent {
    _recentLoggedInOwner :: OwnerId
  , _recentOwnerIds      :: [OwnerId]
  , _recentDogIds        :: [DogId]
  , _recentTime          :: UTCTime  
  , _recentMessage       :: Message }
  deriving (Ord, Eq)

instance Default Recent where
  def = Recent 1 [] [] someTime NoMessage

someTime :: UTCTime
someTime = read "2013-01-01 00:00:00.000000 UTC" :: UTCTime

showsRecent :: Recent -> String -> String
showsRecent (Recent a b c d e ) =
  showString    "Recent "
  . shows a . (' ':) 
  . shows b . (' ':) 
  . shows c . (' ':) 
  . shows d . (' ':) 
  . shows e . ('\n':) 

readsRecent :: String -> [(Recent,String)]
readsRecent s =
  [ (Recent a b c d e , rest) |
      ("Recent", x1) <- lex s,
      (a, x2) <- reads x1,
      (b, x3) <- reads x2,
      (c, x4) <- reads x3,
      (d, x5) <- reads x4,
      (e, rest) <- reads x5

instance Show Recent where
  showsPrec _ = showsRecent

instance Read Recent where     
  readsPrec _ = readsRecent

type RecentVisits =  [Recent]
The first time I wrote this, I locked out owners who misidentified their dogs. This was to prevent spammers. Well, there weren't any spammers, but there were several frustrated owners, so I removed the lockout code. I should probably remove the corresponding data, but I'm leaving it here as a reminder. OwnersAndTheirDogs is a pair of lists that associates a list of owhers (who belong to the same family) with a list of dogs (the dogs they may be bringing to the dog park.) This list is maintained by me as part of the code.
«types OwnersAndTheirDogs»
newtype OwnersAndTheirDogs = OwnersAndTheirDogs 
    { unOwnersAndTheirDogs :: ([OwnerId],[DogId]) } 
    deriving (Show, Read, Ord, Eq)

instance Default OwnersAndTheirDogs where
  def = OwnersAndTheirDogs ([],[])

newtype  LockoutMap = LockoutMap (Map ByteString UTCTime)

instance Default LockoutMap where
  def = LockoutMap M.empty

Everything stored permanently on disk goes here.
«types Stored»
data Stored = Stored {
       _storedOwners     :: [Owner]
     , _storedDogs       :: [Dog]
     , _storedRelations  :: [OwnersAndTheirDogs]
  }   deriving (Show, Read, Ord, Eq)
Everything you need to know about an Owner, including his family and his dogs, referenced by an ownerId.
«types AboutOwners»
data AboutOwners = AboutOwners {
    _ownersThis   :: Owner
  , _ownersFamily :: [Owner]
  , _ownersDogs   :: [Dog]
  }   deriving (Show, Read, Ord, Eq)
type OwnerMap = (Map OwnerId AboutOwners) 
Everything the Snaplet needs to run.
«types DogParkState»
data DogParkState = DogParkState {
       _dogParkHeist        :: Snaplet (Heist DogParkState) 
    ,  _dogParkSession      :: Snaplet SessionManager
    ,  _dogParkOwnerMap     :: IORef OwnerMap 
    ,  _dogParkStored       :: Stored  }
type DogParkData = ([Owner] , [Dog] , OwnerMap)
type DogParkHandler a = Snap.Handler DogParkState DogParkState a                   
type DogParkSplice    = SnapletISplice DogParkState
type DPS m a = (MonadIO m, MonadState DogParkState m) => m a
All the different errors that can occur when we process a reminder. The user is sent an encrypted link in an email message. In order for the link to be valid, it must decrypt property, not be expired, and contain a valid ownerId.
«types RemindError»
data RemindError = ParameterMissingError |
                   URLDecryptionError |
                   URLReadError |
                   URLExpiredError  |
                   RemindError String

  show ParameterMissingError = "The q parameter was missing"
  show URLDecryptionError = "URI was not properly decrypted"
  show URLReadError = "URI could not be read"
  show URLExpiredError = "The URI has expired"
  show (RemindError s) = s

Starting now I'm leaving our the imports for the different packages. Some constants I use throughout the app. dogError is just a synonym for error. We warn the user if he reposts a message sooner than 5 minutes. By default, we display the ten most recent visits.
«primitives Constants»

instance Default Stored where
  def = Stored [] [] []

tooSoonForAnotherMessage :: NominalDiffTime    
tooSoonForAnotherMessage = 60*5 -- 5 minutes

-- lockoutTime =  60*60 -- 1 hour

displayRecents :: Int
displayRecents = 10

dogError :: String -> a
dogError = error
relationMap creates a map from ownerIds to an OwnersAndTheirDogs which is then used to create an actual OwnerMap. lookupById is a helper function that looks up an id in a list that is an instance of HasId, which currently is just ownersList and dogsList, and returns the corresponding object. startOwnerMap takes a Stored, which is kept on disk and as an IORef, and uses it to create an OwnerMap. Once we have an OwnerMap, everything we need to know about an owner is quickly accessible.
«primitives Maps»
relationMap :: [OwnersAndTheirDogs] -> Map OwnerId OwnersAndTheirDogs
relationMap = foldr foldOwners def 
    foldOwners od@(OwnersAndTheirDogs (listOfOwners,_)) m =
      foldr (\a b -> M.insert a od b) m listOfOwners

lookupById :: HasId a => Int -> [a] -> Maybe a
lookupById key listWithKey  = lookup key zipWithKeys
    ids = map theId listWithKey
    zipWithKeys = zip ids listWithKey

startOwnerMap :: Stored -> OwnerMap
startOwnerMap (Stored ownersList dogList relations) = foldr mkOne M.empty ownersList
    family = mapMaybe (`lookupById` ownersList)
    dogs   = mapMaybe (`lookupById` dogList)
    mkOne owner oMap = case M.lookup (_ownerId owner) (relationMap relations)  of
      Nothing -> dogError $ "Expected to find " ++ show owner ++ " in OwnerMap"
      Just (OwnersAndTheirDogs (o,d)) ->
        M.insert (_ownerId owner) (AboutOwners owner (family o) (dogs d)) oMap
The dogMap never changes while the Snap app is running, since it can only be modified externally. Thus dogMap is pure. Often you want to convert from an id to the actual object. That is what dogFromMap and ownerFromMap do, however ownerFromMap needs access to the "current" version of the map, which could be changed by user input, hence it is impure. Oftentimes, we have already accessed the current ownerFromMap hence I added ownerFromMapPure. getAllOwners returns a list of all of the owners, which is read from the current ownerMap. Finally, getOwnerMap reads the IORef where the current ownerMap is stored and returns it.
«primitives fromMap»
getDogMap ::  DogParkHandler  (Map DogId Dog)
getDogMap = do
  stored <- use dogParkStored 
  let dogs = stored ^. storedDogs
  return $ M.fromList $ zip (map _dogId dogs) dogs

dogFromMap dog = do 
  dMap <- getDogMap
  return $ fromJust (M.lookup dog dMap)

ownerFromMap :: OwnerId -> DogParkHandler Owner
ownerFromMap ownerid = fmap (`ownerFromMapPure` ownerid) getOwnerMap

ownerFromMapPure :: OwnerMap -> OwnerId -> Owner
ownerFromMapPure oMap ownerid  = fromJust (oMap ^.at ownerid) ^. ownersThis

dogFromMapPure :: (Map DogId Dog) -> DogId -> Dog
dogFromMapPure dMap dog = fromJust (M.lookup dog dMap)

getAllOwners :: DogParkHandler [Owner]
getAllOwners = do

  return $ map _ownersThis (M.elems ownerMap)

A Recent only contains the ids of the family and their dogs, to make storage more compact. What we really want, however, is the corresponding owners and dogs. That is what setupRecent returns. getRecents returns a list of Recents, ordered by most recent visit.
«primitives Recent»

setupRecent :: Recent -> DogParkHandler ([Owner], [Dog])
setupRecent recent = do
  oMap <- getOwnerMap
  dMap <- getDogMap
    actualOwners = map (ownerFromMapPure oMap) (recent ^. recentOwnerIds)
    actualDogs = mapMaybe (`M.lookup` dMap) (recent ^. recentDogIds)
  return (actualOwners, actualDogs)

getRecents :: DogParkHandler [Recent]
getRecents = do
  om <- getOwnerMap
    recents = mapMaybe (view (ownersThis . ownerRecent)) (M.elems om)
    byTime a b = _recentTime b `compare`  _recentTime a
  return $  sortBy byTime recents
In several places we need to ask who is the family or the dogs of a particular owner. We also need to know if a particular dog belongs to a particular owner.
«primitives Relations»

relationsOf :: Owner -> DogParkHandler AboutOwners
relationsOf owner = do
  om <- getOwnerMap
  return $ fromJust (om ^.at (owner ^. ownerId) )

familyOf :: Owner -> DogParkHandler [Owner]
familyOf owner = fmap (view ownersFamily) (relationsOf owner)

dogsOf :: Owner -> DogParkHandler [Dog]
dogsOf owner = fmap (view ownersDogs) (relationsOf owner)

namesOf :: HasButton a => [a] -> [Text]
namesOf = map buttonName

hasDog :: Owner -> DogId -> DogParkHandler Bool
hasDog owner dId = do
  theDogs <- dogsOf owner
  let ids = map (view dogId) theDogs
  return $  dId `elem`  ids
These are functions that manipulate the dog park data that is stored on disk. Since I manually add a new owner and their dogs to the data file, I need to merge that data with the exisiting data that may have been owner modified, namely the ownerWantsEmail and ownerRemind booleans, and the ownerRecent recent visit data.

These functions make debugging functions that need access to the Snaplets DogParkState much easier. dps sets up an initial DogParkState, and tdps runs a fuction that needs such a state and returns the result.

This module implements the daily reminder functionality. I use crontab to send everyone a daily reminder about visiting the dogpark if they wish to have such a reminder. The reminder (usually) looks like this:
Dear Henry,
This is your daily reminder to let people know about your plans.
Please click on the appropriate link below.
The last time Nadine and Henry came with Athena, Adonis, and Aphrodite.
Please click here if you are GOING.
Please click here if you are NOT GOING.
Hope to see you there.
Nadine and Henry

The meat and potatoes of the app is here of course. I'll briefly describe what each of the routes is doing here.

index If the user is known (ie has a known cookie) he is presented with a form and invited to check the boxes of the people and dogs are are (or are not) visiting the dog park today. He can also construct a custom message. If the user is not known, a page full of photos of current owners is presented, and the user is asked to click on the photo of themself.
owner or changeOwner Same as index with an unknown owner. Owner photos are displayed and the user is asked to click on their photo.
runOwner The photos of all the dogs are presented, and the owner is asked to click on one of the photos of the dogs that belong to him.
runDog If the dog belongs to this owner, he is now authenticated and receives a known cookie. He is sent to a page that prompts him to send a message of whether or not he is coming to the dogpark. If the dog does not belong to this owner, he is sent to the lockout page, which now just tells him to select a different dog.
message Displays a list of the ten most recent visits, and asks the user to click on a button and tell others if they are going or not. This is the same as a successful runDog
sendMessage handles the sending of the message, the updating of the DogParkState, the logging of the visit, and sends the user to the index page with an acknowlegement that his message has been sent.
reload reloads the ownerMap from the file stored on disk. I have to run this if I update the owner and dog data via emacs
remind broadcasts a reminder message to all users who want a reminder. In order to prevent spammers, this handler requires that the url is sent from localhost
bulk I added this because some people just don't bother. When I get to the park, I can see show is there, and if I GET this url, I'm presented with a page full of checkboxes, ordered by families and their dogs. I can click on all the ones who are present, when i POST the result, and email is sent out to all the users letting them know who is already at the park.
run This is the url pointed to by the reminder message. If the "q" parameter is valid, it is as if the user pressed the IAmGoing or IAmNotGoing button after being authenticated.

All output to be rendered passes through renderDogs. It takes three arguments. If the owner is authorized, the first argument is all the info about this particular owner. The second argument is the name of the template to render. The third argument is a list of any additional splices to attach before doing the rendering. Ususally this is null or an acknowledgement splice. simpleRender just takes the template name as its arguemnt.

Here is where we authenticate an owner. handleRunOwner gets the ownerDog parameter from the request, and makes sure the owner exists. It then stores the owner id in the session cookie and renders the photos of the dogs. handleRunDog checks that the dog really belongs to the owner saved in the session. If he does, he is now authenticated, and receives a known cookie. He is then redirected to the message page. If not, then he is redirected to a lockout screen.

The message we receive is either a standard message or a custom message, but not both. We first check for a standard message, then for a custom. The sanitizeBalance function makes sure the text returned in a custom message isn't malicious. The message sending handler is a little more complicated. It sets up a Recent object based on what the user returned, and also looks for any changes in the user's preferences, about receiving reminders and notifications. The handleSendMessageCommon is shared with the handleRun code when the user clicks on a reminder message. It handles setting up the acknowledgment splice, updating any modified user preferences, notifying the other users, and adding this visit to the visit log.

handleRun is called when the user clicks on his reminder email message. If the url is valid, others are notified about his intentions and the index page is rendered reflecting this user's new input.

These functions handle notifying users about one or more families who are currently at the park. The owners and the dogs are returned as a space seperated list of numbers represending the ownerId and dogId respectively. getIntParams parse these and returns them as Ints. bulkMessage takes a list of owners and dogs, and returns text nameing them. Then bulkNotify is used to send out the emails to people who want notifications.

Please note, I left out some functions that I reuse frequently, which are in a module called Common. These aren't specific to this application, but are available in the tar archive if you want to look at them.
