    You can try using hint (instead of ghci) though I'm not sure it has the breakpoint functionality.

    with haskell.nix, well, you've found the github issue, you need to put the apecs package in the right nix incantation.

  • Seeking a Project Lead for Matchmaker - Haskell Foundation

    Yes please! Right now all of my open-source projects (most notably hint and recursion-schemes) are about to drop into barely-updated mode, and while I knew this would happen and have been working towards finding co-maintainers, I am now realizing that it wasn't enough. I think such a website would definitely have helped, and I am hoping that once it launches, I'll be able to use it to find some co-maintainers to tide over my projects until I become available again.

    hint's API takes a string, not an AST (I plan to fix this). Internally, hint delegates to the ghc library, which does expose a parser which you can use if you want. hint exists to provide a friendlier API than the ghc library for interpreting Haskell code, but it does not expose a friendlier API for parsing Haskell code.
