IDE-backend + Atom editor

JP Moresmau
Hello, when the open sourcing of IDE-backend was announced (https://www.fpcomplete.com/blog/2015/03/announce-ide-backend), one thing mentioned was Atom support, and indeed the home page for the client (https://github.com/chrisdone/ide-backend-client) mentions Atom. But is there a project out there I can use that brings the two together? The ide-haskell (https://atom.io/packages/ide-haskell) Atom plugin still relies on ghc-mod as far as I can tell.

I saw edsko tutorial on writing Atom plugin in Haskell (http://edsko.net/2015/02/14/atom-haskell/), so it seem we are tentalizingly close to have Atom + Haskell implemented in Haskell, and I'd like to give it a go if there's anything available out there (and maybe help if needed).

Thanks!

Re: IDE-backend + Atom editor

Michael Sloan
Hello!

I don't know if there's any code around integrating atom and ide-backend.  The new work-in-progress School of Haskell implementation directly uses ide-backend-client.  It turned out to not be very hard to get it working with GHCJS and using websockets.

In particular, the ide-backend-common[1] package builds with GHCJS!  This is the package which defines the protocol types and serialization instances.

I needed to modify ide-backend-client a bit to allow me to use it with websockets.  Since atom is local, maybe ide-backend-client's default of using stdin / stdout is fine.  However, it might be helpful that my ide-backend-client branch[2] makes it into a library and allows the caller to specify actions for sending / receiving messages.  The current state of that branch also requires a special branch of ide-backend[3].

I'm glad you're interested in this! I'm happy to help out with it!

-Michael
