- on lion (and snow leopard i suppose), make sure you are using a 64 bit install of ghc. Also, unless you are suggesting an edit to these directions, please go ask people on the relevant mailing list or wiki for help :)
- Tested on ghc 7.2.2, assumes you have standard developer things installed on mac, like x11 and stuff
- Also tested on GHC 7.0.4 (Haskell Platform) with XCode 4.3.
- These notes were originally brought to you by Carter Schonwald; the “I” probably refers to him. Eric Kow will refer to himself in the third person).
- gtk2hs 0.12.2 won't build with ghc 7.4.1, but the current darcs repo for gtk2hs does build
- on 7.4 there seems to be a problem when in ghci and drawing to a window, but not when rendering to pdf. I don't know why this is, but if you do, let me know. I'll update this as i have more info
Install gtk and cairo via HomeBrew
brew install glib cairo gtk gettext fontconfig brew deps gtk # see below brew deps gtk | xargs brew link brew link cairo gettext fontconfig gtk-demo # just to see what happens
Brew may complain, who cares, this makes your life easier (at least if you're living in a haskell world :p )
NOTE: you will need to make sure that all these Brew libs are built, and linked in
Unpack libfreetype, and then run
brew install stow mkdir /usr/local/stow ./configure --prefix /usr/local/stow/freetype-2.4.8 make make install cd /usr/local/stow stow freetype-2.4.8
This will install the static and dynamic library files for lib freetype in
/usr/local/(../include and ../lib) , which is what you'll want, though this will contribute to brew doctor complaining, but again, this is the easiest way. Eric Kow has added stow to this mix because he thinks that making this easily reversible may be a good thing.
Install Haskell gtk
cabal install gtk2hs-buildtools cabal install gtk
This should work sans complaints!
Install something using Cairo, eg, this plott.hs
cabal install chart-gtk ghc --make plott.hs # see link above ./plott
Try out some other cool libraries like diagrams!
