I work on Mac OS X.

On one machine I have Haskell Platform installed. On the other I have ghc, cabal-install, and various packages installed by hand.

To edit, I use SubEthaEdit with a Haskell mode for editing. 

To run, I use various command line (via standard OS X Terminal) tools. I use ghci for poking around, and debugging in the small. For most of my projects, even small ones, I create .cabal files and unit test/quick check suites, then use cabal to build and test.
