flycheck-hdevtools

NOTICE: This package is currently unmaintained, and may or may not work

This library provides a flycheck checker for Haskell source code using hdevtools.

hdevtools is a syntax and type checker which caches information in persistent background daemons, and thus checks faster than plain GHC.

Installation

You'll need Emacs 24 for flycheck, so the recommended way to get flycheck-hdevtools is as a package from the MELPA repository. The version of haskell-hdevtools there will always be up-to-date.

If you insist on doing things the hard way, first ensure flycheck is installed, then download this code and add the directory to your Emacs load-path.

Then, in your init.el:

(eval-after-load 'flycheck
  '(require 'flycheck-hdevtools))

Make sure that the hdevtools binary is present on Emacs' exec-path, or customize flycheck-haskell-hdevtools-executable to point to the hdevtools binary.

Usage

When flycheck is enabled (e.g. with global-flycheck-mode), Haskell buffers will be automatically checked using this checker.
