Hayoo requires about 5GB of RAM for indexing complete Hackage at the
moment. I don't think is feasible to run a local Hayoo to index Hackage.
On the other hand, one might think about a Hayoo which indexes the local
Cabal sandbox. Unfortunately, this is not our top priority.

The new Hayoo is based on the Hunt-Framework, which is not ready to be
released at the moment. We're going to make a separate announcement for
Hunt then. in the meantime, you can have a look at the GitHub repository

I could publish the serialized index of Hayoo, if you want to set up a
local Hayoo despite the memory usage.
