This Cabal Git repository contains the following packages:

  • [Cabal](Cabal/README.md): the Cabal library package ([license](Cabal/LICENSE))
  • [cabal-install](cabal-install/README.md): the package containing the cabal tool ([license](cabal-install/LICENSE))

The canonical upstream repository is located at https://github.com/haskell/cabal.

Installing Cabal (by downloading the binary)

Prebuilt binary releases can be obtained from https://www.haskell.org/cabal/download.html. The cabal-install binary download for your platform should contain the cabal executable.

Installing Cabal (with cabal)

Assuming that you have a pre-existing, older version of cabal-install, run:

cabal install cabal-install

To get the latest version of cabal-install. (You may want to cabal update first.)

To install the latest version from the Git repository, clone the Git repository and then run:

(cd Cabal; cabal install)
(cd cabal-install; cabal install)

Installing Cabal (without cabal)

Assuming you don't have a pre-existing copy of cabal-install, run:

cabal-install $ ./bootstrap.sh # running ./bootstrap.sh from within in cabal-install folder.

For more details, and non-unix like systems, see the [README.md in cabal-install](cabal-install/README.md) and [Contributing Guidelines](CONTRIBUTING.md).

*Note that all licence references and agreements mentioned in the Cabal-ide-backend README section above are relevant to that project's source code only.
