An editor agnostic minimal IDE for your shell. Think pulp -w build on steroids.


npm i -g pscid


Start pscid in a terminal in the root folder of your project.

pscid will show you errors and warnings (one at a time) whenever you save a PureScript source file. This makes for a nice iterative workflow.

Type b inside pscid's terminal window to build your project. This looks up the build script inside your package.json and failing to find that will run pulp build.

Type t inside pscid's terminal window to test your project. As with building this looks up the test script in package.json first, and falls back to pulp test otherwise.

Type q to quit pscid.


Some warnings carry a suggestion from the compiler (for example redundant imports). pscid will prompt you to press s inside the terminal window when it encounters such a warning, and automatically apply the suggestion for you.

CAREFUL: This modifies the file in place.

If something goes horribly wrong you might lose your uncommited changes. Commit often and trust in the types I guess...

  • -p The port to use. Defaults to 4243
  • --include -I <dir;dir;...> Additional directories for PureScript source files, separated by ;
  • --censor-codes <UnusedTypeVar,...> Warning codes to ignore, seperated by , (just like in purescript-psa)
  • --test Runs your tests after every successful rebuild


pscid utilizes to format and enrich the errors and warnings emitted by the compiler.
