ZuriHac 2019 - GHC Track

Hey Matthew,

Could you do me a big favor and record/document this session? Unfortunately
I won't make it to the ZuriHac, but I'm highly interested in improving my
GHC workflow.

Currently I'm working in a cycle of:

1. read code in haskell-code-explorer [1]
2. modify it in Emacs (currently only syntax highlighting, no type checking)
3. look at ghcid if the types match
4. goto 1 or use hadrian to build

I guess this may be improved by the haskell-ide-engine.

Of course would it be amazing, if all talks could be recorded.

BTW - If any of the other readers has a better setup, please share. I found
very little about IDE setup for GHC in the Wiki or Internet and the
"standard" dante or intero approaches don't seem to work, at least not out
of the box.

Best regards,

Sven
