This package allows you to write Rust inline in your Haskell source using quasiquotes. Here is a short example. For more examples, check out the examples folder.

-- examples/Hello.hs
{-# LANGUAGE TemplateHaskell, QuasiQuotes #-}

module Main where

import Language.Rust.Inline import Data.Int

extendContext basic setCrateRoot []

main = do putStrLn "Haskell: Hello. Enter a number:" x

If you want to use this with GHCi, make sure to pass in



This currently depends on a GHC feature that will be available in GHC 8.6. Until then, you'll have to build GHC yourself or get a binary. For the latter, you can install one of GHC's nightly builds.

$ curl | tar xz
$ cd ghc-*
$ ./configure && make install

With that installed, something like the following should work

$ cabal new-build -w /usr/local/bin/ghc-8.5.20180423
$ cabal new-test  -w /usr/local/bin/ghc-8.5.20180423

Running the examples is only a matter of threading through the right package databases. With a new enough Cabal,

does this for you.
$ cabal new-exec -w /usr/local/bin/ghc-8.5.20180423 ghc -- -threaded -package inline-rust examples/Hello.hs
[1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( examples/Hello.hs, examples/Hello.o )
Linking examples/Hello ...
$ ./examples/Hello
Haskell: Hello. Enter a number:
Rust: Your number is 42
Haskell: Rust says number plus 1 is 43
