IMPORTANT

This package is now obsolete. It has been superceded by try-reflex.

ghcjs-setup

NixOS users, please read the important note below before continuing

To install, do this:

git clone https://github.com/ryantrinkle/ghcjs-setup
cd ghcjs-setup
./ghcjs-setup

This will install the Nix package manager, grab the ghcjs package information, build everything, then give you access to a sandbox with ghcjs and node.js available. The first time you run it, the build process will take a long time - up to several hours. After that, it should only take a few moments.

You will need sudo access in order to install Nix (unless you are on NixOS). However, you should run the script as yourself, not root - it will prompt for your password when necessary.

Note: Enabling the binary cache on NixOS

When using Nix on NixOS, only root can add binary caches to the system. This will force ghcjs-setup to rebuild GHCJS from scratch, which takes hours. To enable the binary cache, you can add the following line to your /etc/nixos/configuration.nix:

  nix.trustedBinaryCaches = [ "https://ryantrinkle.com:5443" ];

If you already have a trustedBinaryCaches option set up, just add https://ryantrinkle.com:5443/ to the existing list.

Once it's been added, run sudo -i nixos-rebuild switch to make the change take effect, then run ghcjs-setup as normal.
