Inspired by the recent blog series of Lars Lillo Ulvestad on using IHP with Elm, we added a new IHP project template. You can use it by passing the
--elm flag to the
ihp-new command to do the initial project setup needed for elm:
$ ihp-new --elm my-new-elm-project
If you already have used ihp-new before: You likely need to update the ihp-new command before the elm flag is working. Run
nix-env -f https://ihp.digitallyinduced.com/ihp-new.tar.gz -i ihp-new to update it.
This will generate a new IHP project, install elm and wire it up in your
Layout.hs. You'll be greeted with the usual welcome page - but with a small addition
Elm is working!.
You can now start hacking on your elm project. All the elm files are located in the
elm directory. Open
elm/Main.elm and start hacking! :)
There's also a new Elm Guide in the IHP documentation.
