Install fails with lts-7.0 #199

LTS Haskell 7.0 (gcc-8.0.1) just came out and unfortunately this now seems to mean that haskell-vim-now does not install properly anymore. (I was able to trace the problem to the codex package, see issue 63).

Here's where I think haskell-vim-now has a bug: Even if I carefully setup the global stack project (.stack/global-project/) to use LTS-6.12 via

stack --resolver lts-6.12 setup

so that I can successfully install the codex package via

stack --resolver lts-6.12 install codex

I still have a failure of

bash /tmp/

as follows:

--- Setting up GHC if needed...
Downloaded ghc-8.0.1.                                      
Installed GHC.                                                                 
    Stack bin path: /Users/mmayer/.local/bin
    Stack global path: /Users/mmayer/.stack
    Stack global config location: /Users/mmayer/.stack/global-project/stack.yaml
    Stack resolver: lts-7.0
    /Users/mmayer/.config/haskell-vim-now/.stack-bin -> /Users/mmayer/.local/bin
--- Installing helper binaries...
Plan construction failed.
*** Binary installation failed with error 1.
*** Aborting...

Somehow the scripts pick up LTS-7.0 (ghc-8.0.1) along the way, and the installation fails.

I'm using a clean Ubuntu VM, and I have the same issue on Mac OS X.

This is fixed as far as codex is concerned, I believe: aloiscochard/codex#63 (comment)

I had the "Binary installation failed with error 1." error during installation:

Running this:

$ stack --resolver lts-6.12 setup

and then editing a line in ~/.stack/global-project/stack.yml to lts-6.12:

resolver: lts-6.12

the installation then worked.

Edit: Ubuntu 16.04

I think we once again need extra-deps section: extra-deps: [codex-].

Oh, and stack's error message is totally informative..
