Hazel: Automatic Bazel rules for third-party Haskell dependencies

DEPRECATED: Hazel development has been moved upstream to rules_haskell. This repository has been archived.

Hazel is a Bazel framework that manages build rules for third-party Haskell dependencies.

Rather than manually writing BUILD files (and checking them into your source repository), Hazel only requires you to specify the set of third-party dependencies and their versions. Hazel autogenerates everything else at build time, including automatically downloading Cabal packages from Hackage, parsing their .cabal files and creating Haskell build rules.

Hazel uses the rules_haskell package.

Status

Hazel is still experimental, and its API is subject to change. Most Hackage packages will not yet build with it; however, a small number have been verified so far as a proof of concept.

Setting up a new project

First, run the Stackage.hs script to generate a list of all packages in a particular LTS release or nightly snapshot:

./Stackage.hs lts-10.5 packages.bzl
./Stackage.hs nightly-2018-07-09 packages.bzl

That packages.bzl file should be checked into your repository.

Then, add some rules_haskell-related boilerplate to your WORKSPACE file, as described in their README:

http_archive(
    name = "io_tweag_rules_nixpkgs",
    strip_prefix = "rules_nixpkgs-cd2ed701127ebf7f8f21d37feb1d678e4fdf85e5",
    urls = ["https://github.com/tweag/rules_nixpkgs/archive/cd2ed70.tar.gz"],
)
RULES_HASKELL_SHA = "f6f75f4b551202bff0a90e026cb572c181fac0d8"
http_archive(
    name = "io_tweag_rules_haskell",
    urls = ["https://github.com/tweag/rules_haskell/archive/"
            + RULES_HASKELL_SHA + ".tar.gz"],
    strip_prefix = "rules_haskell-" + RULES_HASKELL_SHA,
)
# Replace with a more recent commit, as appropriate
HAZEL_SHA=dca41ff6d9ce7a00e4af91ebe621f0c939e7e465
http_archive(
    name = "ai_formation_hazel",
    strip_prefix = "hazel-dca41ff6d9ce7a00e4af91ebe621f0c939e7e465",
    urls = ["https://github.com/FormationAI/hazel/archive/{}.tar.gz".format(
              HAZEL_COMMIT)],
)

load("@io_tweag_rules_nixpkgs//nixpkgs:nixpkgs.bzl", "nixpkgs_git_repository", "nixpkgs_package")

nixpkgs_git_repository(
    name = "nixpkgs",
    # A revision of 17.09 that contains ghc-8.2.2:
    revision = "c33c5239f62b4855b14dc5b01dfa3e2a885cf9ca",
)

nixpkgs_package(
    name = "ghc",
    repository = "@nixpkgs",
    attribute_path = "haskell.packages.ghc822.ghc",
    # NOTE: this uses the ghc bindist template provided by Hazel
    build_file = "@ai_formation_hazel//:BUILD.ghc",
)

load("@io_tweag_rules_haskell//haskell:repositories.bzl", "haskell_repositories")
haskell_repositories()

register_toolchains("@ghc//:ghc")

Finally, in WORKSPACE, load packages.bzl and feed its contents to haskell_repositories macro:

load("@ai_formation_hazel//:hazel.bzl", "hazel_repositories")
load("//:packages.bzl", "core_packages", "packages")

hazel_repositories(
    core_packages = core_packages,
    packages = packages)

Using Hazel in build rules

The hazel_repositories macro creates a separate external dependency for each package. It downloads the corresponding Cabal tarball from Hackage and construct build rules for compiling the components of that package.

Note, that Haskell package names are case-sensitive while Bazel workspace names are case-insensitive on case-insensitive file systems. For the generated workspace names to be case-insensitive we include a hash of the original package name. Query for targets @all_hazel_packages//:haskell_{package_name} to determine the generated workspace name.

For example:

# Discover the generated external workspace for the vector package.
bazel query 'deps(@all_hazel_packages//:haskell_vector, 1)'
# --> @haskell_vector__820387517//:bzl

# Build all components of a single package, as well as all of its dependencies:
bazel build @haskell_vector__820387517//:all

# Build all components of all third-party packages:
bazel build @all_hazel_packages//:all

To depend on a third-party package in a BUILD file, use the macros provided by hazel.bzl:

load("@io_tweag_rules_haskell//haskell:haskell.bzl", "haskell_test")
load("@ai_formation_hazel//:hazel.bzl", "hazel_library")

haskell_library(
    name = "Foo",
    srcs = ["Foo.hs"],
    deps = [
        hazel_library("base"),
    ],
)

haskell_test(
    name = "bar",
    srcs = ["Main.hs"],
    deps = [
        ":Foo",
        hazel_library("base"),
        hazel_library("vector"),
    ],
)
