06:38:32<wvd>hi
06:39:25<wvd>If I use happs, do I have to use it via its built in httpd or could I host it using apache?
06:51:38<vegai>wvd: there's something about that in http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/HAppS_tutorial#How_to_deploy_your_application.3F
06:52:12<vegai>the rails folks deploy with a reverse proxy often, too
16:41:07<pythonist>Where do I find syb-with-class >= 0.4? HAppS-Data depends upon it...
16:44:23<pythonist>I found the answer myself: http://happs.org/HAppS/syb-with-class
16:44:59<pythonist>My next question: how could I know?
16:52:09<Saizan>you could by looking at searchpath's module map
16:52:21<Saizan>not the best..
16:54:26<pythonist>sorry the dumb question, but what are you talking about?
16:56:27<Saizan>http://www.searchpath.org/default.map
16:57:56<pythonist>I was using cabal instead...
16:58:05<pythonist>cabal install
16:58:27<pythonist>Should I have used sp? Is sp somewhat preferred to cabal?
16:59:21<Saizan>cabal is the haskell standard
17:00:07<pythonist>Nonetheless, it failed to install the correct version of syb-with-class...
17:00:22<Saizan>sp is preferred by alexj and may be easier to use for happs
17:00:39<Saizan>pythonist: with which error?
17:01:19<pythonist>Saizan: wait.. I just finished compiling HAppS-HTTP
17:04:01<pythonist>Saizan: here you find it http://hpaste.org/5324
17:04:47<Saizan>well
17:04:58<Saizan>the 0.3 package is supposed to fail
17:05:14<Saizan>you're supposed to install from the repo
17:05:45<pythonist>Is this mentioned anywhere?
17:05:59<gbacon>on the HAppS page :-)
17:06:19<gbacon>step 3 under Getting Started
17:06:43<gbacon>it's nice because it does the dependency chasing for you
17:07:01<pythonist>gbacon: As I said, I wasn't using sp, but cabal...
17:07:10<pythonist>gbacon: I'll give sp a try...
17:07:22<gbacon>pythonist: you'll be glad you did
17:07:59<pythonist>gbacon: but, provided that's good to have alternatives, why sticking to sp when cabal is somewhat standard in the Haskell world?
17:08:50<gbacon>sp also watches for changes in your web service's source
17:09:13<gbacon>chasing dependencies by hand is a d-r-a-g
17:14:57<pythonist>gbacon: Is sp general or HAppS specific?
17:16:03<pythonist>gbacon: it seems to rely on the map file...
17:18:17<Saizan>pythonist: the dependency is on 0.4, the one on hackage is 0.3, so.. you can still use cabal to install syb-with-class from the repo.
17:19:14<Saizan>pythonist: it does rely on the map file. sp can be general but it's used only by happs afaik
17:20:46<pythonist>Saizan: I just tried the sp way and it's very easy to get a HAppS apps up and running,
17:21:29<Saizan>it is :)
17:22:14<pythonist>Saizan: I think it'd useful for those wanting to use cabal to mention the correct location for syb-with-class somewhere in the home page...
17:22:37<pythonist>... or, alternatively, upload 0.4 to the HackageDB...
17:23:53<Saizan>yeah, may be worth mentioning to the maintainer
17:27:49<pythonist>Do you use HAppS for any project?
17:32:01<Saizan>i've a small site in happs, but i haven't ported it to recent versions yet
18:31:50<guenni>I set up a windows machine for all my Haskell stuff (VM), mainly because Hugs in Win, should I switch to Unix instead (Linux, FreeBSD)?
18:31:56<pythonist>C/win 6
18:33:25<pythonist>guenni: I use Haskell (ghc) both on Windows and Linux... I prefer the latter, but ghc should work fine under Win...
18:35:00<pythonist>guenni: BTW, you question doesn't seem related to HAppS... maybe the #haskell channel is a better place to ask.
18:35:17<guenni>yep, it's just that the Happs web site seems to use linux cli a lot
19:09:42<dv\\>i imagine setting happs up on windows would be a nightmare
19:10:49<gbacon>dv\: no, pretty easy, at least with cygwin
19:11:20<gbacon>dv\: just gotta remember to put things where the Win32-native ghc can find them
