    Look here: hie-bios (its the library used by haskell-language-server to get to know your project better, iirc).
  • Portable Haskell with VS Code?

    Yeah the same happened to me with previous versions of the Haskell IDE Engine that used Stack, so I ended up with several snapshots under \~/.stack that took a lot of space. Nowadays I just install HLS, Cabal and a single HLS-supported GHC with ghcup. It's a huge difference. I think there is a Windows-supported equivalent of ghcup, but I have not used it. If you also have Stack installed, remember that you can place a [`hie.yaml`](https://github.com/mpickering/hie-bios#explicit-configuration) file in your project root that can [force HLS to use cabal](https://github.com/mpickering/hie-bios#cabal) instead of stack in your project (this was needed last time I checked, complex configurations would need tuning this file a bit, though).

    You can provide an alternative stack.yaml to HLS, with the specific configuration for the ide, although you have to write down an explicit hie.yaml file, take a look to https://github.com/mpickering/hie-bios#stack

    Please consider testing dev builds with the WIP new vgs-bios feature, inspired by the amazing hie-bios. It reads your project hie.yaml and supports multi-component/multi-package projects.
