Guidelines, and community info, for Haskell on Arch Linux.
  
Goals:
+
* [http://archhaskell.wordpress.com/ Arch Haskell News]
 +
* [http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Haskell_package_guidelines Arch Haskell Wiki]
 +
** [[/Arch_Haskell_Group_Maintainership]]
 +
** [http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Libraries_released_with_GHC Libraries shipped with GHC]
  
* all hackage packages into AUR or community.
+
[[Category:Community]]
* automatic conversion of new cabal packages to AUR packages
+
* make Arch Linux the most up to date Haskell platform around

=== Guidelines ===

+
We're working on a tool to automate PKGBUILD generation.
+
 
+
* darcs get http://code.haskell.org/~dons/code/cabal2arch
+
 
+
Or:
+
 
+
* cabal install cabal2arch
+
 
+
====Libraries ====
+
 
+
In general, each .cabal file should map to one PKGBUILD. The following conventions hold:
+
 
+
* libraries have their cabal names prefixed with "haskell-"
+
* all haskell dependencies are statically linked, so can go in the makdepends field.
+
* all libraries have a dependency on 'ghc'
+
 
+
Registering Haskell libraries is done via a register hook:
+
 
+
<haskell>
+
build() {
+
    cd $startdir/src/cabal2arch-0.1
+
    runhaskell Setup configure --prefix=/usr || return 1
+
    runhaskell Setup build                  || return 1
+
    runhaskell Setup register  --gen-script || return 1
+
    runhaskell Setup unregister --gen-script || return 1
+
    install -D -m744 register.sh  $startdir/pkg/usr/share/haskell/$pkgname/register.sh
+
    install    -m744 unregister.sh $startdir/pkg/usr/share/haskell/$pkgname/unregister.sh
+
    runhaskell Setup copy --destdir=$startdir/pkg || return 1
+
    install -D -m644 LICENSE $startdir/pkg/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE || return 1
+
}
+
</haskell>
+
 
+
====Executables ====
+
 
+
* Have their normal name
