    To find the complete code of both applications follow the link. (For convenience, the links to the main files are Elm, Reflex).

  • obelisk

    Functional reactive web and mobile applications, with batteries included.

    For the Reflex example, we use the Obelisk framework. It allows implementing both the frontend and the backend and is also responsible for the server-side rendering and routing. We will use it as the build system only (we have no backend here).

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • reflex-dom

    Web applications without callbacks or side-effects. Reflex-DOM brings the power of functional reactive programming (FRP) to the web. Build HTML and other Document Object Model (DOM) data with a pure functional interface.

    dyn allows “using” a dynamic widget. The returned event activates each time the dynamic changes.

  • 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. (by reflex-frp)

    Reflex is the framework that allows creating reactive web applications in Haskell.

  • Elm

    Compiler for Elm, a functional language for reliable webapps.

    Elm is a functional programming language used to create reactive web applications. Elm applications must follow The Elm Architecture (TEA), i.e. a simple design pattern implying the code division into three parts – model, view and update:
