Haskell IDE Engine for Nix

This project provides cached Nix builds for Haskell IDE Engine for GHC 8.6.5 and 8.8.3.

Installation

Installation is done with your projects nix-shell environment. Both haskell.nix and the nixpkgs Haskell infrastructure are supported. If you don't have a nix-shell environment for your project yet, I recommend using haskell.nix.

If you just want to get started, see the templates for fully working example projects.

haskell.nix Projects

In short, to install HIE for your haskell.nix project, apply the all-hies nixpkgs overlay and add { hie = "unstable"; } to the tools argument of shellFor. If you want to use the prebuilt binaries, use the all-hies cachix. Read the rest of this section for more details.

Applying the overlay can be done as follows in a recent haskell.nix version

let
  # Pin all-hies
  all-hies = fetchTarball {
    # Insert the desired all-hies commit here
    url = "https://github.com/infinisil/all-hies/tarball/000000000000000000000000000000000000000";
    # Insert the correct hash after the first evaluation
    sha256 = "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000";
  };

  # Assuming nixpkgs and haskellNix are defined here

  # Import nixpkgs with both haskell.nix's overlays and the all-hies one
  pkgs = import nixpkgs (haskellNix.nixpkgsArgs // {
    overlays = haskellNix.nixpkgsArgs.overlays ++ [
      (import all-hies {}).overlay
    ];
  });

  /* ... */
in /* ... */

Adding HIE to the environment is done like this in your shellFor call

shellFor {
  packages = p: [ p.my-package ];
  tools = {
    hie = "unstable";
  };
}

Configuring the all-hies cachix can be done with these instructions, or if you have cachix installed already:

$ cachix use all-hies

Note that for haskell.nix in general, cachix use iohk saves a lot of building time if you use the same nixpkgs as IOHK's CI.

See the haskell.nix stack template or haskell.nix cabal template for a fully working example including a working stack/cabal version and a hoogle database.

nixpkgs Haskell infrastructure

In short, to install HIE for your project using nixpkgs Haskell infrastructure, apply the all-hies overlay and add the hie Haskell package to the nativeBuildInputs argument of shellFor. If you want to use the prebuilt binaries, use the all-hies cachix. Read the rest of this section for more details.

Applying the overlay can be done as follows

let
  # Pin all-hies
  all-hies = fetchTarball {
    # Insert the desired all-hies commit here
    url = "https://github.com/infinisil/all-hies/tarball/000000000000000000000000000000000000000";
    # Insert the correct hash after the first evaluation
    sha256 = "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000";
  };

  # Assuming nixpkgs is defined here

  # Import nixpkgs with the all-hies overlay
  pkgs = import nixpkgs {
    # Pass no config for purity
    config = {};
    overlays = [
      (import all-hies {}).overlay
    ];
  };

  /* ... */
in /* ... */

Adding HIE to the environment is done like this in your shellFor call:

shellFor {
  packages = p: [ p.my-package ];
  nativeBuildInputs = [
    haskellPackages.hie
  ];
}

If you don't use shellFor, you can change your Haskell environment derivation like this instead:

envWithHIE = env.overrideAttrs (old: {
  nativeBuildInputs = old.nativeBuildInputs ++ [ haskellPackages.hie ];
})

Configuring the all-hies cachix can be done with these instructions, or if you have cachix installed already:

$ cachix use all-hies

See the nixpkgs infra template for a fully working example including a working cabal version and a hoogle database.
