runhs

Stack wrapper for single-file Haskell programs.

Declare package dependencies in the source code of your single-file Haskell program. Easily and reliably run your program, compile it, or load it in GHCi or Ghcid.

Install

  1. First, install Stack.

  2. Add Stack's install directory to your PATH.

    • Windows: Installing Stack automatically adds its install directory to your PATH.

    • Most Linux: echo 'export PATH="${HOME}/.local/bin:${PATH}"' >> ~/.profile && export PATH="${HOME}/.local/bin:${PATH}"

    • MacOS Pre-Catalina: echo 'export PATH="${HOME}/.local/bin:${PATH}"' >> ~/.bash_profile && export PATH="${HOME}/.local/bin:${PATH}"

    • MacOS Catalina and newer: echo 'export PATH="${HOME}/.local/bin:${PATH}"' >> ~/.zshrc && export PATH="${HOME}/.local/bin:${PATH}"

  3. Finally, install runhs: Download the appropriate executable for your platform from the Releases page and put it somewhere on your PATH, or stack install runhs.

Usage

Add a block comment (the front matter) at the start of any single-file Haskell program in the following format:

{-
resolver: lts-16.6
packages:
  - bytestring
  - containers
-}

The front matter must be the first block comment in your file, and the comment delimiters {- and -} must appear on their own lines, just as above.

The resolver property is required and must be a valid Stackage resolver. The packages property is required if your Haskell program depends on external packages, but may be omitted if your Haskell program does not.

Once you have the appropriate front matter at the top of your file, you may load your program in Watch Mode or in Interactive Mode (a.k.a. REPL Mode) in GHCi, or run your program as a script, or compile your program, using the following command format.

runhs (watch|repl|script|compile) <file> [<args>]
