The build artefacts of new-* are placed in a "dist-newstyle" directory.
Another common mistake with 188.8.131.52 is that `cabal new-build` won't do much at all if run in some parent directory. You might need to `cabal new-build ./my-blog/` and then get the artefacts somewhere (burried) in ./my-blog/dist-newstyle/... (I believe there is some improvement regarding behaviour in the parent directory in master already; certainly was planned.) Hope that helps. -- lennart On 16/09/16 13:40, Ramakrishnan Muthukrishnan wrote: > I have a fairly simple hakyll based blog website that I usually build > with cabal sandbox. > > Today I tried the new-configure/new-build commands.
