intero in all
haskell-mode buffers by default, enable
intero-global-mode, by using
M-x customize or by adding
(intero-global-mode 1) to your Emacs start-up files.
Intero will then activate for all projects, and for files without a
stack.yaml, it will assume the “global” project. If you want to use an
alternate stack yaml configuration file (for example, when developing
for multiple GHC versions), use
M-x intero-stack-yaml to switch
file. When switching configuration, you will asked whether you want to
preserve this choice across emacs sessions for the given project.
Some users prefer to enable Intero selectively. The custom variables
intero-whitelist are provided for this
purpose, and are honoured by
If the parent directory of a Haskell file is listed in
intero will not be enabled for that file,
unless a parent directory of that file is also listed in
intero-whitelist. In other words, whitelist entries take
precedence. You can therefore blacklist
/ to disable
intero in all
projects unless they are whitelisted.
Intero support for other editors and IDEs
Although not supported by the Intero maintainers, integrations with other editors exist:
If you would like to build support into a new editor or IDE, please see TOOLING.md.
Issues are split into low/medium/high priorities which dictates which ones will be implemented first.
