Workspace rules (GHC binary distributions)

Macros and Functions

ghc_bindist

Create a new repository from binary distributions of GHC.

The repository exports two targets:

  • a bin filegroup containing all GHC commands,
  • a threaded-rts CC library.

These targets are unpacked from a binary distribution specific to your platform. Only the platforms that have a "binary package" on the GHC download page are supported.

Examples

In WORKSPACE file:

load("@rules_haskell//haskell:ghc_bindist.bzl", "ghc_bindist")

# This repository rule creates @ghc repository.
ghc_bindist(
  name    = "ghc",
  version = "8.2.2",
)

name

A unique name for the repository.

version

The desired GHC version.
