How do I figure out dependency version bounds for my library (when publishing on Hackage)?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/haskell

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time
  • Mergify - Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • strong-path

    Strongly typed paths in Haskell

    I wrote a strong-path package, which I published on Hackage. I am using Stack to build it: I have stack.yaml and package.yaml as sources of truth, while strong-path.cabal is generated by Stack but I also commit it into vcs.

  • semver

    Semantic Versioning Specification

    It sounds like you are writing about SemVer. Hackage packages use PVP - Package Version Policy in which the first two components of a version number denote the major version.

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.

  • cabal-install-parsers

    Scripts and instructions for using CI services (e.g. Travis CI or Appveyor) with multiple GHC configurations

    If you're on github, I'd look at , which generates a GH actions template from the tested-with: fields in the cabal file.
