    DDlog is a programming language for incremental computation. It is well suited for writing programs that continuously update their output in response to input changes. A DDlog programmer does not write incremental algorithms; instead they specify the desired input-output mapping in a declarative manner.

    The relational model (and generally working at the level of sets/collections, instead of the level of individual values/objects) actually makes it easier to have this kind of incremental computation in a consistent way, I think.

    There's a bunch of work being done on making relational systems work this way. Some interesting reading:

    - https://www.scattered-thoughts.net/writing/an-opinionated-ma...

    - https://materialize.com/ which is built on https://timelydataflow.github.io/differential-dataflow/, which has a lot of research behind it

    - Which also can be a compilation target for Datalog: https://github.com/vmware/differential-datalog

    - Some prototype work on building UI systems in exactly the way you describe using a relational approach: https://riffle.systems/essays/prelude/ (and HN discussion: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=30530120)

    (There's a lot more too -- I have a hobby interest in this space, so I have a small collection of links)
