The Haskell Platform is a collection of software packages, tools and libraries that create a common platform for using and developing applications in Haskell. With the Haskell Platform, Haskell follows the same principle as Python: "Batteries included".[2]


The Haskell Platform aims to unify Haskell development tools into a single package, consisting of a compiler, compiling tools and many standard libraries, therefore making it easier to develop and deploy full-featured Haskell-driven applications.

Packages included[edit]

Currently it consists of:[3]


It is available for Ubuntu,[6] Arch Linux,[7][8] FreeBSD,[9] Gentoo Linux (x86-64 and x86),[10] Fedora,[11] Debian (stable)[12] and NixOS. One-click installers exist for OS X[13] (only Intel) and Microsoft Windows.[14]


Originally,[when?] the Haskell Platform aimed at a 6-months release cycle.[15] Starting with 7.10.2,[when?] it will follow the release cycle of GHC and use the same version numbering scheme.[citation needed]
