So I know the somewhat very basics of haskell, and for a small program that I wanted to do I found a function in a library (the function was
Data.List.Split, which was it's own confusing thing since for the looks of it the package name is
So I tried to look for a package manager, which lead me to stack. Now I tried to work with it but I don't want to build a massive project, I just want to experiment around a bit.
- I do not understand the whole project structure (there is a lot of indirection and I can't tell even to which file I should be writing my code, it's a small thing I only want one file and one function from one lib).
- Why is there not a simple package installer alternative, I feel the tool is getting in my way more than it's helping.
- I find that this is more of a general haskell thing but I do agree that although it's hard documentation is good the soft one is lacking and I think it's what I'm feeling now. # TL;DR: I don't understand stack
PS: Sorry if this is too long this is my first post, I'm not sure how this works
