I updated my “How to Install the Haskell Platform on Arch Linux” post.
I’ve found two things recently that you may like to know if you’re a haskell-ite:
- Haddock isn’t in the Haskell-Core repos anymore, so you need to build from Cabal (unless I’m missing something…)
- I’m preferring to build Pandoc with Cabal Install, as I’m finding it easier to keep current with it.
- Random: Pandoc + iPython is awesome.
If you don’t already have Haskell up and running on your Arch or Arch-based system (like Manjaro, Antergos, Arch Bang, or other) then Read My Post on how to do that.
THEN, do this to get Pandoc running globally:
$ sudo cabal update
$ sudo cabal install --global pandoc
This takes a LONG time, be patient. Pandoc is HUGE… because it does everything: makes coffee, spots you on biceps-curls, and translates any format of writing to just about any other.
