Test the grammar

Haskell grammar for tree-sitter.

Note This grammar needs at least tree-sitter 0.19.4 and C++-14.

Building with nvim-treesitter

When installing the grammar from source, be sure to include the scanner in the source files:

lua <<EOF
local parser_config = require "nvim-treesitter.parsers".get_parser_configs()
parser_config.haskell = {
  install_info = {
    url = "~/path/to/tree-sitter-haskell",
    files = {"src/parser.c", "src/scanner.cc"}
  }
}
EOF

Depending on what compilers are installed in your system, it may be necessary to force nvim-treesitter to use a specific one to satisfy the C++-14 requirement (see this issue for more info):

lua require'nvim-treesitter.install'.compilers = { "clang" }
" or
lua require'nvim-treesitter.install'.compilers = { "clang++" }

or

lua require'nvim-treesitter.install'.compilers = { "gcc" }

Building on MacOS

If you get loads of C++ errors when building the parser, a workaround might be to install GCC with homebrew, in addition to selecting gcc as the compiler used by tree-sitter, as described for Neovim in the previous section.

First, run this command in a terminal:

$ brew install gcc

This may not be enough, since clang might still be used by default. You can find out whether the gcc executable is linked to something else with:

$ ls -l $(which gcc)

If this doesn't point to something like gcc-11, you can remove it (if it is a symlink) and/or link the real gcc-N binary to a bin directory that's at the head of your $PATH, something like:

ln -sf /opt/homebrew/bin/gcc-11 /usr/local/bin/gcc

or this for earlier versions of homebrew.

ln -sf /usr/local/bin/gcc-11 /usr/local/bin/gcc

Bugs

CPP

Preprocessor #elif and #else directives cannot be handled correctly, since the parser state would have to be manually reset to what it was at the #if. As a workaround, the code blocks in the alternative branches are parsed as part of the directives.

Layout

NondecreasingIndentation is not supported (yet?).

Operators on newlines in do

A strange edge case is when an infix operator follows an expression statement of a do block with an indent of less or equal the do's layout column:

f = do
  readSomething
  >>= doSomething

The >>= causes the do's layout to be terminated, resulting in an AST similar to

f = (do readSomething) >>= doSomething

This is checked heuristically, probably unreliably.
