An advanced, general-purpose, purely-functional programming language with non-strict semantics and strong static typing.


To install Haskell libraries and build Haskell projects, you will likely want to install cabal – a system which aids in the packaging, distribution, and installation of Haskell libraries and applications.

If you’ve chosen to install the Haskell Platform, then you already have Cabal installed. Otherwise, you can install it by:

$ sudo dnf install cabal-install

You can then install packages from Hackage by using:

$ cabal install <package name>

Note that Fedora offers a large number of Hackage packages in its official repositories as RPMs. You can always try installing a Hackage package via dnf first using:

$ sudo dnf install ghc-<package name>
