Arch Haskell News: Feb 16 2009

A regular update of Haskell in Arch Linux

Arch now has 926 Haskell packages in AUR.

That’s an increase of 27 new packages in the last 8 days, or 3.38 new Haskell apps a day. Well done everyone!

Noteworthy updates

Installing Packages from AUR

To install AUR packages, we recommend yaourt, as in:

yaourt --noconfirm  --lightbg --aur -S haskell-haha

You may want to alias that command line. Here’s an example from this week’s releases:

The reason to use yaourt over cabal-install is that AUR packages correctly resolve all versions and, more importantly, C library and other system dependencies. Packages will also be pulled from the binary releases in [extra] and [community] where available, saving you build times.

New and Updated Packages

We now present package info sorted by category — let us know if this helps!

Functional reactive grapefruit

Grapefruit is a new suite of libraries for functional reactive-style GUIs layered on top of GTK (via gtk2hs), announced today. Besides being a modern FRP gui library, it notably uses arrow syntax to describe gui components.

Arrow syntax is a bit of a rarity in Haskell code:

    addA f g = proc x -> do
                    y <- f -< x
                    z <- g -< x
                    returnA -< y + z

Will build the computation:

All the components are packaged here for Arch Linux.

In other funky Haskell gui news, haskell-haha has also been released and packaged for Arch, and lets us do vector graphics in ascii in the terminal…. hell yeah!
Here’s a video of haha at work, and how to get it via cabal (yaourt also works fine):

SDL bindings for Haskell

Packages for the Haskell bindings to SDL are now available in Arch.:

Simple DirectMedia Layer is a cross-platform multimedia library designed to provide low level access to audio, keyboard, mouse, joystick, 3D hardware via OpenGL, and 2D video framebuffer. It is used by MPEG playback software, emulators, and many popular games, including the award winning Linux port of “Civilization: Call To Power.”

Many parts of the library are available:

The new Haskell game library is built on top, as is the new purely functional user interface library.
