Git Question

Haskell stack and version control

I'm new to Haskell and Stack. When creating a new project using

stack new
which files should be checked in to git (or any other VCS)? The whole dir?

Answer Source

You should check in stack.yaml, your-project-name.cabal and Setup.hs, as they are necessary for building your project in a reproducible way. The src, app and test directories should also be committed, as they in principle are where your source code will live (you can of course rearrange the structure of the default project if you wish to do so). On the other hand, you should ignore the .stack-work directory, as it contains the build output and other volatile pieces of data.
