2016-08-09 22:40:54 +0200 <mgsloan> Oh actually, upgrading Cabal would effectively have that effect anyway
2016-08-09 22:29:36 +0200 <mgsloan> Maybe try "stack setup --upgrade-cabal" ?
2016-08-09 22:28:58 +0200 <mgsloan> Yes, though right now stack doesn't have a good way to downgrade Cabal version, only upgrade :/
2016-08-09 22:27:35 +0200 <mgsloan> Gurkenglas: I'm pretty sure that's a non-deterministic Cabal bug, unfortunately https://github.com/haskell/cabal/search?q=package.cache+&type=Issues&utf8=%E2%9C%93
2016-08-09 22:08:39 +0200 <adarqui> yesod devel didnt work with cabal , but works with 1.28.x.0
2016-08-09 22:07:47 +0200 <adarqui> trying to downgrade cabal, maybe somehow it got upgraded and yesod needs a lower version
2016-08-09 20:05:34 +0200 <glguy> iphy: If you're using GHC 8.0.1, you should be using cabal-1.24
2016-08-09 20:02:37 +0200 <iphy> cabal: You need to re-run the 'configure' command. The version of Cabal being used has changed (was Cabal-, now Cabal- Additionally the compiler is different (was ghc-8.0, now ghc-7.10) which is probably the cause of the problem.
2016-08-09 20:02:19 +0200 <iphy> https://travis-ci.org/iphydf/pokemon/builds/150997317#L837 <- how can this happen? there is no change of anything between those two cabal calls
2016-08-09 17:48:57 +0200 <Gurkenglas> (cabal cant build old-time, stack can, so im trying to get stack to do the things that work with cabal and not with stack)
2016-08-09 14:18:05 +0200 <yamadapc> Just keep your cabal file in version control so it doesn't overwrite something you want to keep
2016-08-09 14:09:30 +0200 <yamadapc> It's just much easier to write & parse, though there's quite a lot of tooling for working with .cabal manifests
2016-08-09 14:06:17 +0200 <yamadapc> One can now convert cabal files onto hpack's package.yamls with: curl -F "cabalfile=@./`echo *.cabal`" https://hpack-convert.herokuapp.com

2016-08-09 13:56:08 +0200 <estonoboo> cabal sounds funny V:
2016-08-09 13:55:48 +0200 <kamyarinanloo> Gurkenglas: No apparently stack does not supporty GHC 8 yet. I have to use cabal
2016-08-09 13:53:44 +0200 <ongy> kamyarinanloo: I can simply install hindent with cabal on ghc-8. But that's in a clean sandbox.

2016-08-09 11:41:44 +0200 <puregreen> people install libraries with cabal as well, so what stack can/can't do doesn't matter
2016-08-09 08:44:04 +0200 <kadoban> Do any people recommend Haskell Platform anymore? Isn't it just stack or cabal-install and manually install GHC or whatever now?
2016-08-09 08:35:16 +0200 <ertes> estonoboo: the library cabal comes with GHC, while the utility cabal is more like a convenience
2016-08-09 08:32:51 +0200 <srhb> estonoboo: It's a library for building and also an executable (from cabal-install) for installing packages.
2016-08-09 08:32:29 +0200 <estonoboo> also what's cabal?
2016-08-09 08:13:47 +0200 <ongy> talking about hoogle, I noticed that the hoogle vim plugin has a local version of the database, can I limit the scope of that database to e.g. my cabal sandbox?
2016-08-09 06:44:03 +0200 <dmwit> In this case, I meant a yaml or cabal file or whatever is needed to list dependencies. If it can be done on the command line, then that's great.
2016-08-09 06:42:30 +0200 <dmwit> ...or just `cabal install fgl`. Then boring old ghci will have it lying around.
2016-08-09 06:38:49 +0200 <Axman6> are you in a directory with a haskell package already? (are there any .cabal files?)
2016-08-09 06:37:19 +0200glguyfigured it out https://github.com/haskell/cabal/issues/2997
2016-08-09 06:34:07 +0200 <glguy> Anyone know how one specifies extra-lib-dirs for dependencies when building with cabal's new-build?
2016-08-09 02:55:09 +0200 <monochrom> I think Hackage was after Cabal.
2016-08-09 02:52:33 +0200 <Sonarpulse> Does Hackage predate the minimum Cabal version field in Cabal files?

2016-08-08 23:26:45 +0200 <Cale> x1f577: sigh, profiling support is turned off by default in cabal, so if you don't turn it on right away, you eventually end up reinstalling all your packages to support profiling.
