And yet again I prepare myself to climb the dependent types mountain, this time for this Saturday's Idris workshop in Dublin (that was in May :P, as I said forgot to post this).

$ brew install haskell-stack
will get you stack, which can sometimes be used to compile stuff you care about.
$ stack setup
$ stack install idris
Luckily enough actually worked for me at the first try, while
