Inspired by ImplicitCAD FAQ ImplicitCAD provides a Haskell API, so you can also design objects in Haskell.


Let’s get started

Note: as of 8.0.1 there are two download options available — minimal and full. The minimal option is currently the generally recommended one. It does not include any additional global libraries beyond those packaged with ghc, though it does include all tools. This ensures maximal compatibility with a variety of library sets. The full option is useful for those who prefer the “classic” platform behavior with a broader set of preinstalled libraries, and especially serves those well who want full-featured installers in situations where network connectivity should not be taken for granted.

Note also: the stack tool has been evolving relatively rapidly. Users who wish to ensure they are running the latest version may want to consider running “stack update” and ensuring the proper path for stack-installed binaries is in their environment.

Haskell Platform

Generic Linux

This is a generic distribution of the Haskell Platform. While it should work on most modern Linux distributions, you may want to investigate use one of the distribution-specific options listed on the right.

The latest version of the Haskell Platform for Linux is 8.0.1.

8.0.1 Minimal tarball

Install by running:

        tar xf ...downloaded archive...
        sudo ./install-haskell-platform.sh
