We're working on a tool to automate PKGBUILD generation.

1.2.1 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:

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
}

1.2.2 Executables

  • Have their normal name
