PostgREST is a standalone web server that turns your PostgreSQL database directly into a RESTful API. The structural constraints and permissions in the database determine the API endpoints and operations.

  Introducing PostgREST

  Using PostgREST is an alternative to manual CRUD programming. Custom API
  servers suffer problems. Writing business logic often duplicates, ignores or
  hobbles database structure. Object-relational mapping is a leaky abstraction
  leading to slow imperative code. The PostgREST philosophy establishes a single
  declarative source of truth: the data itself.

I'd appreciate getting haskell@ on hook when adding new Haskell ports.

In the Makefile

- "SKIP_CABAL_PLIST=       yes" should be removed, along with "sbin/postgrest" from pkg-plist.
- do-install target shouldn't contain INSTALL_PROGRAM part. Doesn't USES=cabal install this executable automatically?

postgrest is a web server, custom installation is made for remove unnecessary shell wrapper.

You mean wrapper generated by USES=cabal? What's wrong with it?
Comment 7 Dmitry Wagin 2020-05-26 13:52:05 UTC
(In reply to Gleb Popov from comment #6)

wrapper is not needed.

(In reply to Dmitry Wagin from comment #7)

Most of Haskell ports don't need them, but that's not a reason to introduce additional complexity to ports. Please, provide a patch with changes I requested.
Comment 9 Dmitry Wagin 2020-05-26 14:11:28 UTC
(In reply to Gleb Popov from comment #8)

Generating files that will not be used is wrong.
Comment 10 Gleb Popov freebsd_committer 2020-05-26 14:44:51 UTC
Okay, since you're the maintainer I'll leave that to you.

IMHO complexity same + generated file
