Build Status

A feature rich calculator repl.


  • Arithmetic
  • Standard mathematical functions

    • Static plots (no animation)
    • Dynamic plots (for multiple argument functions)


Linux users

From hackage:

stack install gtk2hs-buildtools
PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH" stack install calculator

From the repo:

stack install gtk2hs-buildtools # From a directory with no stack.yaml
cd /path/to/calculator/repo
PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH" stack install

Windows users

This should work, assuming the PATH variable is set correctly:

cmd> stack install gtk2hs-buildtools
cmd> stack install calculator
