Install package ide-haskell-hoogle. Refer to Atom Flight Manual for details on installing packages.

Package requires hoogle executable, plus you will need to build hoogle database for hoogle itself to work.


Install hoogle

You can use cabal, stack, or your favorite package manager.


cabal install hoogle


stack install hoogle

Build local hoogle database

You have a choice between installing basic database and extended database.

Installing extended database will take a lot of time and memory!

To install basic database, run

hoogle data

To install extended database, run

hoogle data all

Point the package to hoogle executable

You don’t need to do this if hoogle is in PATH, i.e. if you can type hoogle in the terminal, and won’t get ‘File not found’ error.

Open Atom’s settings, Packages, find ide-haskell-hoogle, then set Hoogle Path to full path to hoogle executable. For example, if your hoogle executable is located in /home/user/.local/bin/ directory, put /home/user/.local/bin/hoogle into Hoogle Path.
