Hasky Stack

License GPL 3 MELPA Build Status

This is an Emacs interface to the Stack Haskell development tool.

Root menu

Build sub-menu

Package action menu


Download this package and place it somewhere, so Emacs can see it. Then put (require 'hasky-stack) into your configuration file. Done!

It's available via MELPA, so you can just M-x package-install RET hasky-stack.


Bind the following useful commands:

(global-set-key (kbd "<next> h e") #'hasky-stack-execute)
(global-set-key (kbd "<next> h h") #'hasky-stack-package-action)
(global-set-key (kbd "<next> h i") #'hasky-stack-new)
  • hasky-stack-execute opens a popup with a collection of stack commands you can run. Many commands have their own sub-popups like in Magit.

  • hasky-stack-package-action allows to perform actions on package that the user selects from the list of all available packages.

  • hasky-stack-new allows to create a new project in current directory using a Stack template.

Switchable variables

There is a number of variables that control various aspects of the package. They can be set with setq or via the customization mechanisms. This way one can change their default values. However, sometimes it's desirable to quickly toggle the variables and it's possible to do directly from the popup menus: just hit the key displayed under the “variables” section.

Switchable variables include:

  • hasky-stack-auto-target—whether to automatically select the default build target (build sub-popup).
  • hasky-stack-auto-open-coverage-reports—whether to attempt to automatically open coverage report in browser (build sub-popup).
  • hasky-stack-auto-open-haddocks—whether to attempt to automatically open Haddocks in browser (build sub-popup).
  • hasky-stack-auto-newest-version—whether to install newest version of package without asking (package action popup).


There is a number of customization options that are available via M-x customize-group hasky-stack.
