#Haskellers Full source code for the haskellers.com website. Use as a base for your own Haskell/Yesod applications or as a sample application to help with learning Haskell/Yesod

System Requirements

You must have Haskell, Yesod and Postgresql installed.

Instructions for installing Haskell and Yesod are available at http://www.yesodweb.com/page/quickstart

You will also need to install libicu-dev. This can be installed on debian based machines with:

apt-get install libicu-dev


  1. Download the source code to an appropriate folder. Just run:
    git clone https://github.com/snoyberg/haskellers.git`

Alternatively download the zip archive at https://github.com/snoyberg/haskellers/archive/master.zip and extract to a suitable folder.

  1. cd to the haskellers directory created above.

  2. Download and install local copies of all the libraries needed by haskellers.com. using the Stack tool:

    stack install yesod-bin cabal-install --install-ghc && stack build
  3. create a new postgresql database for the haskellers data. Just run:

    sudo su - postgres
    psql template1
    CREATE USER <username> WITH PASSWORD '<pwd>';
    CREATE DATABASE <dbname>;
  4. Copy config/db/postgresql.yml.example to config/db/postgresql.yml, and edit the latter to reflect the choices you made in step 4.

  5. Copy config/db/google-email.yaml.example to config/db/google-email.yaml and config/db/facebook.yaml.example to config/db/facebook.yaml

  6. Copy config/db/aws.example to config/db/aws, and in the latter replace SOME-ACCESS-KEY and SOME-SECRET-KEY with random, unguessable strings.

  7. Start the haskellers application by running stack exec -- yesod devel.
