To get started with Shake, you need to:
- Install the Haskell Stack.
stack install shake
stack exec -- shake --demo, which should produce something similar to the trace below.
- To repeat the build after the initial demo, run either
stack exec ./build.sh(on Linux) or
stack exec build.bat(on Windows) in the demo directory.
