    Can't speak to the others, but I'm pretty sure the F# team just doubled or tripled in size (it's still small though). Also the GitHub repo is very active: https://github.com/dotnet/fsharp .

  • Hot-reload in Fun.Blazor
    3 projects | dev.to | 27 Feb 2022
    I know csharp got hot-reload for blazor for a while, I also keep tracking on the fsharp issue and hope there is some miracle which can happen. But there is no progress here. So I decide to have a look for what I can do. To make dotnet watch work directly is too hard to me which required a lot of knowledge about FSharp.Compiler.Service and the IL format which csharp roslyn is using for patch the program for hot-reload.

    You can simply contribute to https://github.com/dotnet/fsharp/, the maintainers are very friendly to new contributors in my experience (though the codebase is old and often quite hard to understand).
