Manage sandboxed Haskell build environments http://github.com/creswick/cabal-dev

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
cabal-dev is a tool for managing development builds of Haskell projects. It supports maintaining sandboxed cabal-install repositories, and sandboxed ghc package databases.
By default, it uses a cabal-dev directory under the current working directory as the sandbox.
For most packages, just use
cabal-dev instead of
cabal, and you will get a sandboxed build that
will not install anything (even automatically installed
dependencies) into the user or global ghc package
If your build depends on patched or unreleased libraries, you can add them to your sandboxed build environment by installing them to the sandbox directly:so
cd /path/to/dependency cabal-dev install --sandbox=/path/to/sandbox
Then build your library/application with the specified sandbox.
