cloud-haskell: The Cloud Haskell Application Platform

[ bsd3, control, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Cloud Haskell is a set of libraries that bring Erlang-style concurrency and distribution to Haskell programs. This project is an implementation of that distributed computing interface, where processes communicate with one another through explicit message passing rather than shared memory.

This package is just a convenient wrapper around the distributed-process-platform, distributed-process and network-transport packages, so they can be installed with a single cabal install cloud-haskell command.

The package also comes with flags to enable different Network.Transport and Cloud Haskell (network topology) backends.

Manual Flags


Enable the network-transport-tcp Network.Transport backend


Enable the simplelocalnet cloud haskell (topology) backend


Enable the p2p cloud haskell (topology) backend


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info

Cloud Haskell meta-project

Build Status

Cloud Haskell is a set of libraries that bring Erlang-style concurrency and distribution to Haskell programs.

This repository includes references to all other official Cloud Haskell packages for conveniently building them all from a single location. Use this repository as a starting point for hacking on Cloud Haskell packages (see CONTRIBUTING).

Those users that do not use package snapshots (such as Stackage) can use the .cabal file in this repository to install a consistent set of versions of all Cloud Haskell packages. Snapshot users don't normally need this .cabal file, and should add Cloud Haskell packages directly as dependencies.


Installation from Hackage

$ cabal install cloud-haskell

Building from source

Clone this repository locally using git or hub:

$ hub clone --recursive haskell-distributed/cloud-haskell


$ cd cloud-haskell
$ stack build

You will need stack installed and reachable from your $PATH.

Updating the source

To hack on the latest versions of all packages,

$ git submodule update --remote
