hdevtools is a backend for text editor plugins, to allow for things such as
syntax and type checking of Haskell code, and retrieving type information, all
directly from within your text editor.
The advantage that hdevtools has over ghc-mod is that it runs silently
in a persistent background process, and therefore is able to keeps all of your
Haskell modules and dependent libraries loaded in memory. This way, when you
change only a single source file, only it needs to be reloaded and rechecked,
instead of having to reload everything.
This makes hdevtools very fast for checking syntax and type errors (runs
just as fast as the ":reload" command in GHCi).
In fact, syntax and type checking is so fast, that you can safely enable auto
checking on every save. Even for huge projects, checking is nearly instant.
In addition to checking Haskell source code for errors, `hdevtools` has tools
for getting info about identifiers, and getting type information for snippets
of code.

* Build-depend on ghc-ghci, as Info.getIdentifierInfo relies on
interpreter-specific functions.

* Rebuilt against current version of libghc-ghc-paths-dev,
which is necessary for it to be able to load modules built with ghc
