How I use tmp-postgres

PATH="/usr/lib/postgresql/11/bin/:${PATH}" \
  cabal v2-repl \
  --build-depends tmp-postgres==1.34.1.0
ghci> import Database.Postgres.Temp
ghci> Right db <- start
ghci> toConnectionString db
"host=/tmp/tmp-postgres-socket-559194f2 dbname=postgres port=35013"
<do stuff with that information>
ghci> stop db
