+ <longdescription>
+ &#39;hdevtools&#39; is a backend for text editor plugins, to allow for things such as
+ syntax and type checking of Haskell code, and retrieving type information, all
+ directly from within your text editor.
+ The advantage that &#39;hdevtools&#39; has over competitors, is that it runs silently
+ in a persistent background process, and therefore is able to keeps all of your
+ Haskell modules and dependent libraries loaded in memory. This way, when you
+ change only a single source file, only it needs to be reloaded and rechecked,
+ instead of having to reload everything.
+ This makes &#39;hdevtools&#39; very fast for checking syntax and type errors (runs just
+ as fast as the &#39;:reload&#39; command in GHCi).
+ In fact, syntax and type checking is so fast, that you can safely enable auto
+ checking on every save. Even for huge projects, checking is nearly instant.
+ Once you start using &#39;hdevtools&#39; and you get used to having your errors shown
+ to you instantly (without having to switch back and forth between GHCi and your
+ editor), and shown directly on your code, in your editor (without having to
+ wait forever for GHC to run) you will wonder how you ever lived without it.
+ In addition to checking Haskell source code for errors, &#39;hdevtools&#39; has tools
+ for getting info about identifiers, and getting type information for snippets
+ of code.
