Create zero configuration web apps with Haste.App that don't require a web server.
Note that haste-standalone has been merged into Haste.App -- unless you are using Haste version 0.5.x or older, you should not be using this repository!
cabal install /path/to/cloned/haste-standalone
Build your Haste.App application as usual, but replace
runStandaloneApp; compile with Haste and GHC to obtain your binary and
Now run your binary with the
--embed option, followed by the name of the
$ ./my_app --embed my_app.js foo.html bar.jpg ...
If you're on Windows, this will fail spectacularly. If you're on Linux or OSX,
your binary should now contain all the files you specified. To check that
everything worked, use the
--list-files option to list all embedded files:
$ ./my_app --list-files *my_app.js foo.html bar.jpg

Now you can launch your web application simply by executing it. On start,
it will print the host and port on which your application is served.
For more information and configuration options, run any binary built with
haste-standalone with the
