editor-open

You know when you run git commit, and an editor pops open so you can enter a commit message? This is a Haskell library that does that.

This library isn't very portable. It relies on the $EDITOR environment variable. The concept only exists on *nix systems.

Installing

If you're using this library, I assume you're familiar with the basic infrastructure of Haskell programs. If not, check out Bitemyapp's guide.

Just add editor-open to the build-depends: field in your project's .cabal file.

Alternatively, you can just do a one-off installation with:

cabal install editor-open
