h1. How to run your own Hellage index
First, see [[use]] for installing Hellage.
Then, see [[/hellnet/hspawn/use#metatrees]] for information how to create your own meta key.
bc. $ hellage-genmeta mykey hackage
Where @mykey@ is your key alias and @hackage@ is your meta name.
This will download index and packages from [http://hackage.haskell.org] and store links in your meta. If download of certain package is stalled for too long, feel free to interrupt the program; next time it will start where it ended, only need to re-download index.

h1. How to use Hellage
This may be insanely difficult. Or not.
If you can't build from source, get the [[../hspawn/jumpstart]] package.
First, "install Hellnet":/hellnet/hspawn/build. If you manage it, the rest is simple:
bc. $ cabal install hellage
or, @git clone git://git.bitcheese.net/hellage && cd hellage && runghc Setup.hs install@ and have fun.
h2. Actually use it
First, you need to add at least one Hellnet node to your nodelist. You can use bitcheese.net:6666 for now.
bc. $ hell-nodes handshake bitcheese.net 6666
Then you need to run hellage daemon on your machine:
bc. $ hellage 8da7ec91e46c4b1444bd1b1a151a038a0544fad23266111a8a84178efb9499cb756a265bbe456bd9ec9ba309bf146f8453ba17201ff968e181e36b5efe54fc1f hackage
Here, *8da7ec...* is my encryption key ID and *hackage* is meta name of hellage. If you plan to use this (or any other) key often, you can create an alias:
bc. $ hell-meta alias add voker57_key 8da7ec91e46c4b1444bd1b1a151a038a0544fad23266111a8a84178efb9499cb756a265bbe456bd9ec9ba309bf146f8453ba17201ff968e181e36b5efe54fc1f
and then refer to this key as "voker57" everywhere:
bc. $ hellage voker57_key hackage
This command will run hellage on its default port, which is 6609. If you want to change it, run hellage with -p 64657.
*WARNING WARNING*: Currently hellage does not bind to localhost, thus anybody with access to port can use it. Use firewalls or whatever to protect.
Now, let's add hellage to cabal's sources:
bc. $ editor ~/.cabal/config
Search out the @remote-repo:@, comment it out and add hellage:
bc. -- remote-repo: hackage.haskell.org:http://hackage.haskell.org/packages/archive
Update the hellage index:
bc. $ wget http://localhost:6609/update -O- 2>/dev/null
If result is "Failed" then something went wrong and hellage won't work. Check node connectivity.
Then, run @cabal update@ to get package index:
bc. $ cabal update
If everything was OK, then you can download packages now:
bc. $ cabal install empty
Congratulations! You got hellage up and running.
* If you don't like to keep a terminal emulator constantly running, i suggest using "daemontools":http://packages.debian.org/sid/daemontools or "dtach":http://dtach.sourceforge.net/ or "screen":http://www.gnu.org/software/screen/ for daemonizing hellage.
* You can update hellage via hellage!
