The cabalg package

[Tags: library, mit, program]

Short alias for installing cabal package from git source repository.


$> cabalg

is just a shorthand for

$> mktemp
$> git clone --single-branch --depth=1 --quiet <tempdirname>
$> cabal install <tempdirname>/<cabalfilename>

It also supports arbitrary git revisions mentioning like

$> cabalg

Necessary arguments could be passed to 'cabal install' with -- delimiter like

$> cabalg <repo1> ... <repoN> [-- <cabal-install args>]

Please notice, that --single-branch flag comes with git-1.7.10 ( and later, so you probably want to have it.

It's supposed to be Windows-compatible (not sure about the tests)
