  • Why does Nix have Haskell packages that are incompatible with GHC for a given version?
    3 projects | /r/haskell | 29 Dec 2022
    I'm not a great haskeller but I found haskell.nix better for Haskell projects, like the commenter on Discourse suggested. I've had a few issued regarding package versions with nixpkgs that haskell.nix solved.
  • Simple GHC stack for a novice

    FWIW, there's also libraries like haskell.nix that solve the caching problem.
  • Any up-to-date cross-compiling methods for Raspberry Pi?

    I would try haskell.nix.
  • Take the Nix Pill

    If you want to hurt your brain, check out haskell.nix. That's some good stuff right there ^^

    The haskell.nix framework is good for this.

    One cool thing is that this will enable GHC builds using ucrt instead of vscrt in the future. Concretely, together with NixOS/nixpkgs#171418 and its follow-up NixOS/nixpkgs#173498), this will e.g. allow haskell.nix to upgrade to a newer wine pin for TH cross compilation: https://github.com/input-output-hk/haskell.nix/blob/dd13e822529ae5342494969bce8a457522a60100/overlays/wine.nix

    If you are somewhat comfortable with nix: https://github.com/input-output-hk/haskell.nix supports GHCJS 8.10.x (in particular 8.10.7).
  • What's all the hype with Nix?

    I also prefer stack for development, but I use nix to deploy to production. This way, I can install ad-hoc system dependencies locally and play with them during development as well as enjoy the bits and pieces of Haskell ergonomics stack affords, and once I'm happy with what I have, I "nixify" those dependencies as part of the project nix configuration and send them to production without fear. I use IOHK's excellent haskell.nix infrastructure to nixify my stack-based Haskell project, which makes it trivial to maintain a nix configuration that's always in sync with my stack configuration.

    And stuff like haskell.nix is supposed to let you configure things with stack or cabal or whatever tool you find most convenient, and let nix do the rest.
  • Another Haskell and Nix setup
    3 projects | /r/haskell | 7 May 2021
    /u/ItsNotMineISwear mentioned haskell.nix, which does generate a Haskell package set based on either a stack.yaml file, or the Cabal solver. This would solve some of your problems, but then possibly introduce others.

What are some alternatives?
