  • Changed description from

    The @cabal2nix@ utility converts Cabal files into Nix build instructions. The
    commandline syntax is:
    > Usage: cabal2nix [options] url-to-cabal-file-or-repo
    >   -h             --help                   show this help text
    >   -v             --version                print version
    >                  --hackage-db=FILEPATH    path to the local hackage db in tar format
    >                  --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)
    >                  --jailbreak              don't honor version restrictions on build inputs
    >                  --no-haddock             don't run Haddock when building this package
    >                  --no-check               don't run regression test suites of this package
    >                  --no-hyperlink-source    don't add pretty-printed source code to the documentation
    > 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.cabal                abbreviated version of file URI
    >   <git/svn/bzr/hg URL>             download the source from the specified repository
    The only required argument is the path to the cabal file. For example:
    > cabal2nix
    > cabal2nix cabal://cabal2nix-1.73
    If the @--sha256@ option has not been specified, cabal2nix calls
    @nix-prefetch-url@ to determine the hash automatically. This causes
    network traffic, obviously.
    If the argument refers to a source repository instead of a cabal file,
    cabal2nix will use that source repository to fetch from instead of hackage.
    Currently, cabal2nix supports directories, archives (fetched via http or https) and
    git, mercurial, svn or bazaar repositories.
    This package is no longer maintained on Hackage. Users of Nix can
    install the latest version by running:
    > nix-env -i cabal2nix
