Hi! I'm Hong Minhee, a software engineer from Seoul. You've reached
here, my website. I write some
free/open source software, which are mostly
written in Haskell, Python, and TypeScript. I'm an advocate of
free/open source software and Open Web.
My professional interests are decentralized peer-to-peer networks
and statically typed functional programming languages.
I also have outside interests on etymology, East Asian languages (CJK), Chinese characters,
and further, Unihan.
I've occasionally written about programming and few other topics
in mostly Korean (and sometimes English):
Note that both links above lead to the same page.
Depending on the locale settings of your web browser or OS,
you'll see the blog in either Korean or English.

The best method to contact with me is by email:
email@example.com. (But please ask your questions
in a corresponding mailing list or Stack Overflow instead of
my personal email address if they are about my projects.)
Here's my Discord username too:
My PGP public key is:
is a .NET library for creating multiplayer online game in decentralized
fashion, which means the whole gameplay occurs on a peer-to-peer network
among equal nodes rather than an authorized central server.
- Bencodex is a serialization format
that extends BitTorrent's Bencoding. It aims to force normalization (i.e., bijection between
values and their encodings) and cover common data types similar to JSON
data model at a time, while still be a superset of the original Bencoding
(i.e., every valid Bencoding representation is also a valid Bencodex
representation). I wrote the specification and implementations in
several languages too:
- libsass-python is
a SASS/SCSS package for Python.
- Wand is a
ctypes-based simple ImageMagick API binding for Python.
- Seonbi (선비) is an
HTML preprocessor that makes typographic adjustments and transformations
from Korean mixed script (國漢文混用) to Hangul exclusive writing (한글전용).
- Jikji (直指) is a small
toolkit for building your own static site generators on
- sphinxcontrib-httpdomain is a Sphinx domain for describing HTTP
- wikidata is a
Wikidata client library for
- Geofront is
a simple SSH key management service.
- Et cetera:
- Nirum is an IDL compiler
and RPC/distributed object framework for microservices.
- aitertools is
a well-tested collection of utility functions dealing with
asynchronous iterables in TypeScript for Deno.
- json-hash is
a Deno package to deal with JSON data with cryptography.
It implements JCS, JSON digests, and
JSON Merkle hashes.
- SQLAlchemy-ImageAttach is a SQLAlchemy extension for attaching
images to entity objects.
- checkmate is a
small program to generate human-readable checklists from a given patch
(or pull request).
is a Pythonic interface to fzf, a CLI fuzzy finder.
- sphinxcontrib-autoprogram is a Sphinx extension for documenting
CLI programs in automated way.
- submark is a small
CLI program (and also a GitHub action) to extract some particular
section from a given CommonMark/Markdown document.
- mediawiki-rc-mastodon-bot is a small program relays RecentChanges
from a MediaWiki site to a Mastodon account.
