The cabal2nix package

[Tags: bsd3, program]

The cabal2nix utility converts Cabal files into Nix build instructions. The commandline syntax is:

 Usage: cabal2nix [options] url-to-cabal-file
   -h             --help                   show this help text
                  --sha256=HASH            sha256 hash of source tarball
   -m MAINTAINER  --maintainer=MAINTAINER  maintainer of this package (may be specified multiple times)
   -p PLATFORM    --platform=PLATFORM      supported build platforms (may be specified multiple times)
                  --no-check               don't run regression test suites of this package
                  --jailbreak              don't honor version restrictions on build inputs

 Recognized URI schemes:

   cabal://pkgname-pkgversion       download the specified package from Hackage
   cabal://pkgname                  download latest version of the specified package from Hackage
   http://host/path                 fetch the Cabal file via HTTP
   file:///local/path               load the Cabal file from the local disk
   /local/path                      abbreviated version of file URI

The only required argument is the path to the cabal file. For example:

 cabal2nix http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive/cabal2nix/1.56/cabal2nix.cabal
 cabal2nix cabal://cabal2nix-1.56

If the --sha256 option has not been specified, cabal2nix calls nix-prefetch-url to determine the hash automatically. This causes network traffic, obviously.
