cabal2macpkg

This is (will be) a tool to turn cabal libraries into Macintosh packages. Cabal2macpkg is in its very early stages, and doesn't work yet, sorry.

Status

Rough outline of the process:

  1. find a .cabal file in the current working directory
  2. run "cabal build; cabal haddock" into a staging area
  3. run "cabal register --gen-script" to generate a registration script that will be run by the OS X installer
  4. turn the staging area into a mac package file using the OS X developer tools

I've gotten up to number three here.

A consequence of this quick n' dirty approach is that in order to build the installer for a cabal package, you need to have already installed all of its dependencies on the build machine.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
