The following is a wiki page to centralize discussion of how to improve Haskell on Mac OS X. The name "strike force" comes from dons' post on reddit and the comments therein.

Contents

1 Goals

1.1 Make GHC 64 bit

  • [2965] is the main ticket, with lots of CC: people
  • [4163] gives some cross-compiling hope

1.2 Reduce the number of OS X Trac tickets

Operating System == Mac OS X tickets on Trac

2 Information

2.1 Wiki

2.2 Installing Haskell

2.2.1 How Haskell is on OS X today

The simplest methods are currently:

  • Binary GHC framework (/Library/Framework)
  • Binary Haskell platform framework (/Library/Framework)
  • MacPorts (/opt/local)
  • Fink (/sw)
  • Homebrew (symlinked into /usr/local ?)

2.2.2 Manually compiled

ChrisKuklewicz 11:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC) I use MacPorts for the infrastructure and compile ghc against /opt/local but with --prefix=/opt/ghc-6.12.3 to keep it separate.

2.2.3 Dynamic Linking

working in GHC HEAD, not in any released version.


2.2.4 Difficult libraries on OS X

Libraries needed for ghc

  • iconv (older version in /usr is incompatible with new version from MacPorts)
  • readline (faked in /usr, provided by framework or MacPorts)
  • gmp (framework or MacPorts)

Libraries needed for other packages? gtk?

2.3 OS X code integration

Write Haskell in XCode?

Write ObjectiveC against GHC.Framework?

FFI for Objective C from Haskell?

2.4 Seeking a volunteer to help or take over the HP binary installer project

If anyone has some time to invest in Haskell infrastructure and the willingness or knowhow to hack around OSX installer issues, please email greg@gregorycollins.net. I'm looking for someone to assume maintainership of the project.

2.5 Improvements?

A cabal2pkg that maintains proper dependency tracking?

Discussion forum for all this?
