  • (strongly typed) functional language compilers running in browser
    3 projects | /r/functionalprogramming | 31 Mar 2023
    there're a lot of languages that can target js/wasm these days, some of which are even self-hosting (ghc) and can target browser (ghcjs), a lot are written in haskell which again can target browser but the closest to my request i've found is an old thread of idris supposedely compilable by ghcjs and while there are plenty "run your code in browser (via server compilation)" services i've yet to see a working "running compiler in browser in browser example"
  • What's the current status with packages/libraries on Idris?
    4 projects | /r/Idris | 28 Nov 2021
    So apparently there's a package manager called Inigo, but there are only a few packages in it. There's an idris-hackers group on github, that's linked from the idris-lang.org page. None of those libraries appear in Inigo though. So seems that Inigo isn't really a thing people are using.
  • Record dot syntax has been merged
    8 projects | /r/haskell | 10 Mar 2021
    As of 2013, Idris does not want to even support user defined Unicode operators, for the usual reasons.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing Elm and idris you can also consider the following projects:

rescript-compiler - The compiler for ReScript.

haskelm - Haskell to Elm translation using Template Haskell. Contains both a library and executable.

purescript - A strongly-typed language that compiles to JavaScript

yew - Rust / Wasm framework for creating reliable and efficient web applications

reflex - Interactive programs without callbacks or side-effects. Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) uses composable events and time-varying values to describe interactive systems as pure functions. Just like other pure functional code, functional reactive code is easier to get right on the first try, maintain, and reuse.

haskell-names - Haskell suite library for name resolution

language-thrift - Haskell parser for the Thrift IDL format.

Vue.js - This is the repo for Vue 2. For Vue 3, go to https://github.com/vuejs/core

Cycle.js - A functional and reactive JavaScript framework for predictable code

Svelte - Cybernetically enhanced web apps

lens-toml-parser - Lenses for toml-parser

re-frame - A ClojureScript framework for building user interfaces, leveraging React
