Hi all,

vim-hsimport is a Vim plugin that automatically creates import
statements for Haskell source files for the symbol/identifier under the

vim-hsimport can create import statements for the whole module, for only
the desired symbol/indentifier and is also able to create qualified
module import statements.

By using hdevtools in conjunction with a cabal sandbox, dynamically
only the modules of packages are considered, which your project depends on.

vim-hsimport does also consider the modules of your current project.

If the symbol/identifier is contained in multiple modules, then a
selection dialog is shown.

In conjunction to the hsimport command the Vim plugin also uses the
command hdevtools and the Vim plugin vim-hdevtools.

Currently you need to use forks of hdevtools and vim-hdevtools to get a
working version of vim-hsimport, please see the installation section for

Currently the biggest issue is if and how modules of your current project are
considered for the import, please see the issues section.
