2.1. Installing Clash

Check out clash-lang.org/install to install the latest stable release of Clash, or to setup a Clash project.

2.1.1. Get Clash from source

Get the source code using Git and enter the cloned directory:

git clone git@github.com:clash-lang/clash-compiler.git

# Alternatively, if you haven't setup SSH keys with GitHub:
# git clone https://github.com/clash-lang/clash-compiler.git

cd clash-compiler

To check out a released version, use:

git checkout v1.2.3

To checkout a release branch use:

git checkout 1.2

Note that release branches might contain non-released patches. Cabal

To use Cabal you need both Cabal and GHC installed on your system. For Linux and MacOS users we recommend using ghcup. Windows users are recommended to use the Haskell Platform.

To run clash use:

cabal v2-run --write-ghc-environment-files=always -- clash

If this fails, make sure you’ve got an up-to-date package index:

cabal update Stack

Install Stack and run:

stack run -- clash Nix

Or use Nix to get a shell with the clash and clashi binaries on your PATH:
