ide-haskell-cabal package

The ide-haskell-cabal package provides a build backend for ide-haskell package based on cabal or stack.

It supports easy switching between multiple versions of GHC by having a set of configuration settings for each version of GHC, plus a drop-down box to pick a GHC version. For each GHC version you can specify:

  • The path (either adding to your system path or replacing it completely)
  • The sandbox file (cabal CABAL_SANDBOX_CONFIG environment variable)
  • The build directory (cabal --builddir parameter). This defaults to dist/.

It also provides support for ide-haskell's build target selection by reading and parsing the .cabal file and extracting the available targets (it uses a thin ghcjs-compiled wrapper around the Cabal library to read the .cabal file).
