Readme for stack2cabal-1.0.12

[back to package description]

Gitter Haskell CI Docker build Hackage version license


This is forked of tseenshe/stack2cabal and the current hackage package.


Clone the repo and build with either cabal or stack or see the release page for binaries.


Docker pulls Docker stars Docker image size

docker pull hasufell/stack2cabal:latest


To convert a stack.yaml to cabal.project simply cd to the project directory and run:


This will also create a cabal.project.freeze based on the stack resolver.

Also see stack2cabal --help for further options.


docker run --rm \
  -v /etc/passwd:/etc/passwd:ro \
  -u `id -u`:`id -g` \
  -v `pwd`:`pwd` \
  -w `pwd` \
  --tmpfs "$HOME/.cache" \


  • Hackage packages that are specified as git repositories in e.g. extra-deps might have a different version than the stack resolver. Therefore stack2cabal will download all repos and ignore their package names when generating cabal.project.freeze. This can take some time depending on your project. Pass --no-inspect-remotes to skip this.
