2016-05-02 19:08:57 +0200 <tobiasBora> And I can't manage to install the library : "cabal install simd" and "stack install simd" both give me errors :
2016-05-02 18:49:25 +0200 <dfeuer> I can't remember how to run these silly tests without the full cabal test, and yech.
2016-05-02 16:19:08 +0200 <merijn> I'm getting a lot of "failed to install" errors from cabal but all the logfiles are empty...

2016-05-02 13:08:33 +0200 <bloomyGloom> i'll sandbox that cabal hell into a dev's corner when i'm done with this.

2016-05-02 12:47:00 +0200 <martinvlk> I am basically bulding with different flags than the ones used normally and listed in the cabal file
2016-05-02 12:31:58 +0200 <lyxia> martinvlk: there is a field in .cabal files for options specific to your library
2016-05-02 11:52:25 +0200 <maerwald> is there a cabal value for the project directory?
2016-05-02 10:43:11 +0200 <sgronblo> But I understand with cabal I have to figure out my version range manually and manually update .cabal?
2016-05-02 10:42:51 +0200 <sgronblo> So can someone tell me what their procedure for adding a dependency to their .cabal file is? With npm I would just do npm install --save the_dependency
2016-05-01 22:42:17 +0200 <zeitgeist7> I am having issues with cabal install hoogle
2016-05-01 18:46:47 +0200 <latenite> Hi folks, how do I install system wide using cabal? For now it it only in the (root) users directory https://gist.github.com/anonymous/14ff0975275c38b933d10bf662290252
2016-05-01 16:28:59 +0200 <hpc> srhb: which on windows will happen to be %appdata%/cabal/bin
2016-05-01 16:28:37 +0200 <hpc> srhb: ~/.cabal/bin
2016-05-01 16:16:35 +0200 <srhb> latenite: Given a Haskell infrastructure (ghc, cabal-install) on your computer, you write cabal install flaccuraterip
2016-05-01 15:57:21 +0200 <hexagoxel> troydm: also, you need a `cd paranoia` in your usage. apart from that, package seems fine (it installs cleanly with cabal-install).
2016-05-01 15:25:02 +0200 <ClaudiusMaximus> troydm: afaik, not much beyond "open source license", and "passes cabal check"
2016-05-01 03:07:19 +0200 <maerwald> haskell does not have USE flags, except a few packages that misuse cabal flags
2016-04-30 21:10:47 +0200 <geekosaur> note that there *are* tools to generate various distributions' packaging from cabal files
2016-04-30 21:06:44 +0200 <geekosaur> I don't think so. about the only Haskell projects that use anything like that are cabal and stack
2016-04-30 20:42:34 +0200 <ertes> if yes, cabal upload
2016-04-30 20:40:28 +0200 <ertes> suppi: you can use the website or the 'cabal' tool
2016-04-30 20:39:47 +0200 <ertes> suppi: if you have a 'library' and 'executable' section in your cabal file, just upload it normally
2016-04-30 17:59:57 +0200 <geekosaur> I think cabal has that coming soon as well
2016-04-30 17:59:10 +0200 <jonsesy> one thing that i find annoying with cabal sandboxes is that if i use some huge library, such at gtk2hs, in several unrelated projects (and i do), it has to be recompiled from scratch on each one
2016-04-30 17:58:41 +0200 <ertes> it depends on how your deployment process works: cabal-install is bad at deployment
2016-04-30 17:53:53 +0200 <jonsesy> i've been away from haskell for a while, stopping just when stack started to appear. is it preferred now over cabal sandboxes?

2016-04-30 14:24:17 +0200 <muesli4> I found https://github.com/pbrisbin/cabal-test-hunit but it is apparently not on hackage.
2016-04-30 14:23:28 +0200 <muesli4> Hi, what's the best way to include HUnit into a cabal test suite?
2016-04-30 14:00:59 +0200 <sgronblo> `cabal run` /= `./.cabal-sandbox/mybinary` ?
2016-04-30 03:55:48 +0200 <watChmeFly> I'm not using cabal
2016-04-29 23:36:39 +0200 <jophish> unless you can specify this as a command line argument, it's probably best to write a sed script to modify the .cabal file
2016-04-29 23:28:37 +0200 <MichaelK> jophish: do you know how to make stack on travis work with the fpcomplete mirror of hackage? I suppose I could write a script to modify the cabal file, but that seems too roundabout
