  • Show HN: Imba – I have spent 7 years creating a programming language for the web

    Thanks for sharing, I really like projects like this. And the website is really informative.

    I find it less of a new language and more of a JS preprocessor, removing lots of the cruft and integrating XML-tags and CSS in a very neat way.

    What I miss:

    1) I feel the web is shifting to more type checking. TS, Elm, Kotlin.js... I personally also prefer more typesafety, especially if the project grows in LOC/team size.

    2) Compared to JSX, Imba does a much better job in integrating adjacent technologies. Though I much prefer these to be integrated in an eDSL fashion. For example how Elm does HTML templating (in Elm) or Kotlinx.html[1].

    Just taste i guess. Good luck with yr project!

    I do use kotlinx.html and while there is a lack of the documentation about the tags, most of them are already implemented (as far as I know they are automatically generated) and the ones that aren't automatically generated can be implemented manually in your own project.

    Recently I wanted to try doing Kotlin Fullstack with , I looked at several HTML Template Engines and came across kotlinx.html. I really wanted to use it to make my whole stack type safe, but the few wiki pages that you call "documentation" really had me struggling to use it. Like I didn't even find a whole list of all tags you have. I really expected different from a offical Jetbrains Kotlin library, not to mention there is a complete lack of tutorials for this library, I switched to mustache because they have way better documentation.

What are some alternatives?
