Had an issue install brew install haskell-platform

Needed to run brew install ghc --build-from-source --cc=gcc-4.8 before installing haskell-platform.

Refer to Homebrew/legacy-homebrew#22847.

Homebrew now has pandoc and pandoc-citeproc formulae, which makes the whole thing much less complicated.

I had an issue as follows.And I should do for that?

BilltekiMacBook-Air:~ bill$ tlmgr install etoolbox
TeX Live 2013 is frozen forever and will no
longer be updated.  This happens in preparation for a new release.

If you're interested in helping to pretest the new release (when
pretests are available), please read
Otherwise, just wait, and the new release will be ready in due time.

brew install pandoc
worked when brew update

What's the need to install haskell ?? ...
Just do brew update and brew install pandoc.

I was starting from scratch (no LaTeX), so I had to do the following:

$ brew tap phinze/cask
$ brew install brew-cask
$ brew cask install mactex
  • In this version, pdflatex is broken, so I had to go to my Applications/TeX folder and run FixMaxTeX2013.pkg. Or see this stack exchange link
  • Now I'm ready to install pandoc as above
$ brew update
$ brew install pandoc

@arvindraghavan, this is an awesome routine. just wanted to add that after I followed your steps texbin wasn't on my path, which I then fixed with:

ln -s /usr/local/texlive/2014/bin/x86_64-darwin /usr/bin/texbin

Copy link

This line not work anymore:

~$ brew install haskell-platform
Error: No available formula for haskell-platform
We no longer package haskell-platform. Consider installing ghc
and cabal-install instead:
brew install ghc cabal-install
A binary installer is available:

if you have installed port, simply type this
(works quickly on my OS X Yosemite)

$ sudo port install pandoc
