  • Comparing OCaml and Standard ML (2020)

    OCaml makes so much sense to me -- it's just a shame that the syntax has some weird decisions.

    I wish ReasonML (https://reasonml.github.io/) would come back -- it's a new syntax for the same language, kind of an Elixir/Erlang thing.

  • ReScript has come a long way, maybe it's time to switch from TypeScript?

    Ocaml is still a wonderful language if you want to look into it, and Reason is still going strong as an alternate syntax for OCaml. With either OCaml or Reason you can compile to native code, or use the continuation of BuckleScript now called Melange.

  • Melange for React devs book, alpha release
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Feb 2024
    Hey HN, at Ahrefs we have been working on an online book that hopefully helps React developers get up and running with Melange, an OCaml to JavaScript compiler. You can read more about Melange here: https://melange.re/.

    There are still a few chapters that we'd like to add before considering it "complete", but it might be already helpful for some folks out there, that's why we decided to publish it early.

    The book uses Reason syntax to implement React components using ReasonReact components. You can read more about both in:

  • ReScript: Rust like features for JavaScript
    2 projects | dev.to | 18 Jan 2024
    ReScript is "Fast, Simple, Fully Typed JavaScript from the Future". What that means is that ReScript has a lightning fast compiler, an easy to learn JS like syntax, strong static types, with amazing features like pattern matching and variant types. Until 2020 it was called "BuckleScript" and is closely related to ReasonML.

    This tracks with how I've seen "normal" languages converge on similar, flawed imitations of better type systems through tools and repurposed syntax. Thank you for confirming.

    Do you have any recommendations or warnings regarding general languages which reach in the opposite direction? Reason[1] and F#[2] are both examples: they attach pre-existing ecosystems and compile-for-$PLATFORM tools to OCaml-like typing.

    OCaml itself is also intriguing for personal projects. However, I'm worried the "GPL" in its standard library's LGPL license might scare people despite both the linking exception and Jane Street's MIT alternative.

  • Melange 1.0: Compile OCaml / ReasonML to JavaScript
    3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 12 Jun 2023
    ReasonML purely as a syntax layer on top of OCaml is still being updated and released[1]. Incidentally, I'm one of the maintainers of that project too :-)

    With this Melange release, we're hoping to somewhat revive ReasonML and channel some folks back to the community from the perspective of a vertically integrated platform that has seen major investment in the past few years.
