@romanzolotarev Is there a pre-built package for ElmLang on OpenBSD? Is compiling the haskell from source the only option for someone who wants to work with Elm on OpenBSD?

I found your patch for compiling Elm 0.19 in the Elm Slack. Thanks for that and your posts about OpenBSD!

@rex Elm package is not available. Building Elm 0.19 is not that hard really.

# pkg_add ghc

(move cabal to /usr/local/cabal)


# cabal update
# git clone git@https://github.com/elm/compiler elm-compiler
# cd elm-compiler

(patch elm-compiler to remove elm-react)

# cabal install



@romanzolotarev Much easier than I was making it out to be.

I found ghc, but didn't see that cabal could be installed as a package until now. I was compiling ports and everything for no reason.

I'm also unfamiliar with haskell/cabal, so I didn't know the commands to build it.

Thanks for the help, it looks like it's up and running, now.
