Using the stable version
The Emacs front-end is available from stable MELPA. This package should always be compatible with the latest version of ghc-mod from hackage.
To use stable stable MELPA add this to your
(require 'package) (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "http://melpa-stable.milkbox.net/packages/")) (package-initialize)
With this configuration you can install the Emacs front end from MELPA (the
package is called
ghc there, not
ghc-mod) and install the
ghc-modi binaries from hackage by doing:
% cabal update && cabal install ghc-mod
Nix & NixOS
The installation is a little more involved in this environment as Nix needs some ugly hacks to get packages using the GHC API to work, please refer to this stackoverflow answer:
Using the development version
The easiest way to hack on ghc-mod is compile it, then add
dist/build/ghc-modi to your
PATH and add the
elisp/ directory to your
Make sure you're not using the MELPA version of
ghc.el otherwise you might get
all sorts of nasty conflicts.
If you have any problems, suggestions, comments swing by #ghc-mod (web client) on Freenode. If you're reporting a bug please also create an issue here so we have a way to contact you if you don't have time to stay.
Do hang around for a while if no one answers and repeat your question if you still haven't gotten any answer after a day or so. You're most likely to get an answer during the day in GMT+1.
