Getting Yesod to run on OSX

Just so you know if you want to read on or not: Yesod is a web application framework written in Haskell, which obviously expects you to write stuff in Haskell.

Okay, um, there isn’t much to say as the whole thing went pretty painless.

And frankly, you can pretty much follow the quickstart guide word by word, there has been no apparent difference to setting this up on a Linux box.

While I was at it, I decided to install SublimeHaskell - For an optimal feature set it wants you to install a couple of Haskell packages. Take note that for some reason it couldn’t find ghc-mod in the path even though I was able to call it from a terminal. However, there is a sublime package setting where you can provide additional paths to be considered…

"add_to_PATH": ["/Users/flq/.cabal/bin"]

Some of the steps surrounding cabal take quite some time, time will tell if this gets better considering that everything is now downloaded and built.
