  • Entering periods into Float fields is difficult, what's the better way to do it?

    If you're dealing with some kind of currency it's better to use a Decimal type which has few packages on the ecosystem.
  • Why is Elm documentation so poor?

    Anyways, between The Guide, Beginning Elm and the packages documentation, I think Elm is in a very good place documentation wise.

    Aside from syntax, what you probably need is https://package.elm-lang.org. Default (built-in) functions can be found at elm/core, while other stuff relating to building web application can be found at elm/browser. Take a look at other elm/... packages too, they are written by authors of elm.

    Can you explain what you are missing? The guide is not supposed to give you all the libraries/API - you can find that here: https://package.elm-lang.org/

    If you are looking for a complete API documentation you should be browsing https://package.elm-lang.org/ ; I still find it lacking compared to other programming languages, but it's definitely more complete that the starting guide.
  • Should I compose elements?

    There are two ways of structuring state. Record with each page's state in its own field OR a custom type with the variants containing the state for the page (this is what you see in elm-spa-example or package.elm-lang.org). The tabs you describe behave like the first approach.

    Elm is a strongly typed functional language, compiler, package manager, and framework. You write in the Elm language, and it compiles to JavaScript for use in the browser. The Elm compiler has 2 basic modes of development, and production. It optionally has a REPL if you want to test some basic code. The package manager uses it’s own website and structure using elm.json, instead of package.json. The framework is what Elm is most known for, and was the inspiration for Redux.
  • Should I Upload The Binary Or Build The Code On
    1 project | reddit.com/r/haskell | 28 Dec 2020
    I was considering doing just that, using nginx server. I was using Evan's git repo for Elm packages (website: https://package.elm-lang.org/) (git: https://github.com/elm/package.elm-lang.org ) where he does uses that. So I think I will try this first and then consider deploying the binary if I can. Thanks for the advice!
