cabalg: alias for cabal install from given git repo

[ library, mit, program, unclassified ] [ Propose Tags ]

cabalg is an alias for installing cabal package from a git source repository.


$ git clone
$ git clone
$ cabal install foo/foo.cabal bar/bar.cabal baz.cabal

could be abbreviated by

$ cabalg -- biegunka.cabal

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)
