Arch Haskell News: Mar 14 2009: 1000 Haskell Packages

We’ve reached a milestone: more than 1000 Haskell packages packaged up for Arch Linux.

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!

happstack: a refreshingly innovative web application server

Happstack is a refreshingly innovative web application server written in Haskell. Leveraging the MACID state system, Happstack offers robust and scalable data access without the headache of managing a traditional RDBMS such as MySQL.

The first release was this week. You can now get AUR packages for it:

You can follow the emergence of Happstack in these posts,

  1. Look, HAppS may be alive again!

  3. Happstack 0.1 release scheduled for Wednesday
  4. Mathew Elder joins patch-tag.com as a partner
  5. Happstack 0.1 Released (one day early!)

patch-tag.com is already running on it.

Haskell wiki stack in Arch

The unified Haskell network, web and wiki stack is now in AUR:

  • happs-server, the standalone web appliance kit
  • haskell-salvia, the other standalone web appliance kit for Haskell
  • filestore, the unified darcs/git file versioning API
  • orchid, the Haskell wiki library
  • gitit, the mediawiki-alike standalone wiki system using markdown

and related libs. So you should be able to run either wiki system (gitit or orchid) out of the box now. gitit makes a good case for an automatic dependency resolver, too…

The new unified filestore API project was announced earlier today.
