Build Status

Haskell Bindings for Amazon Web Services (AWS) General Reference

API Version 0.1


Assuming that the Haskell compiler GHC and the Haskell build tool cabal is already installed run the following command from the shell:

cabal install --enable-tests

Running Tests

cabal test

Normalization of the date header breaks the AWS test suite, since the tests in that test suite use an invalid date.

Date normalization is enabled by default but can be turned of via the cabal (compiletime) flag normalize-signature-v4-date. When date normalization is enabled the official AWS Signature V4 test-suite is skipped excluded from the tests. In order to include this test-suite run the following shell commands:

cabal configure --enable-tests -f-normalize-signature-v4-date
cabal test
