hup: Upload packages and/or documentation to a hackage server

[ bsd2, distribution, documentation, library, program, web ] [ Propose Tags ]

Command-line application (plus an associated library) for uploading Haskell packages or documentation to a hackage server.

Some sample command invocations: hup packbuild builds a source distribution .tgz file, ready for uploading; hup packup somefile.tgz uploads it to a hackage server (https://hackage.haskell.org/, by default); and hup packboth combines both steps.

Flags like [-c|--candidate] allow you to upload a candidate package instead.

Requires that stack (https://www.haskellstack.org) be installed.

See the README for further details (at https://github.com/phlummox/hup#readme)

hup Hackage version

Build Status Windows build status

Small program for building and uploading packages and documentation built with the stack build tool to a hackage server.

For instance, to build and upload package documentation to https://hackage.haskell.org/ for a package candidate:

$ hup docboth --candidate --user myHackageUserID --password myHackagePassword

Instead of providing a password on the command line, you can set the HUP_HACKAGE_PASSWORD environment variable and hup will use that as the password.

In addition to stack, hup requires the cabal executable, but will install an appropriate cabal if it doesn't find one in the binaries for the package snapshot your project is using.

Installation

The recommended install method is to run:

$ stack --resolver=lts-11 build --copy-bins hup

On Linux, this will install hup to your ~/.local/bin directory -- ensure that it's on your PATH, and you're good to go.

Quick usage

Try:

$ cd /path/to/my/project
$ stack build
$ hup packboth -u myHackageUserID -p myHackagePassword
$ hup docboth -u myHackageUserID -p myHackagePassword

Usage

  • hup [COMMAND] ... [OPTIONS]

    Build and/or upload packages or documentation to a hackage server. A server url should be of the format PROTOCOL://SERVER[:PORT]/, and defaults to https://hackage.haskell.org/ if not specified.

    A password can also be given in the HUP_HACKAGE_PASSWORD environment variable instead of on the command line.

    'hup --help=all' will give help for all commands.

  • Commands:

      packbuild  Build source distribution .tgz for a package.
      packup     Upload FILE as a package (or candidate package).
      packboth   Build source distribution .tgz and upload as package (or
                 candidate package).
      docbuild   Build documentation for a package.
      docup      Upload FILE as documentation.
      docboth    Build and upload documentation for a package.
    
  • Common flags:

      -v --verbose          be verbose
      -h --help             Display help message
      -V --version          Print version information
         --numeric-version  Print just the version number
    

    '--help=bash' will output code for bash command-line completion.

Library API

For documentation of the library, see the Hackage documentation.

Troubleshooting

I get an error during upload that says "...: does not exist (no such protocol name: tcp)"

This is not actually a bug in hup, but is found in e.g. Docker containers that don't have all the packages needed for networking - see e.g. here on StackOverflow.

You will need to install networking packages appropriate for your distro - on Ubuntu, something like ca-certificates, libgnutls28 (or another version of the GNU TLS library), and netbase.

I get some sort of error when building documents that says "...haddock: internal error: ... hGetContents: invalid argument (invalid byte sequence)"

Again, this isn't actually a bug in hup, but happens (e.g. in Docker containers) when the system locale is not properly set up (see a bug report here arising from a similar issue). Annoyingly, haddock depends on the locale being properly set, though it doesn't really seem necessary.

Try running locale-gen "en_US.UTF-8" to generate an appropriate UTF-8 locale, and export LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8" so that the locale can be found from environment variables.

Bash command-line completion

To enable bash command-completion:

Run

$ hup --help=bash > hup.complete

then either "source hup.complete" or ". hup.complete".

Defaults

Uses "https://hackage.haskell.org/" as the default server location, but see the DefaultServerUrl module if you want to patch this to something else before installing.

Bugs and limitations

  • Some very basic tests of library and app functionality are run on MS Windows and MacOS virtual machines using GitHub and Appveyor's CI/CD capabilities, but no extensive testing on those platforms is performed.

Feature requests

So that actual bugs and defects aren't cluttered by other issues, proposed features and feature requests are maintained as closed issues on GitHub with the labels "enhancement" and "incomplete" (see here).
