  • TypeScript-Website

    The Website and web infrastructure for learning TypeScript

    TypeScript is a JavaScript superset with optional type annotations checked during transpilation.

  • purescript

    A strongly-typed language that compiles to JavaScript

    PureScript is also a purely functional and statically typed language with a Haskell-like syntax.

  • 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)

    At present, here at Typeable we develop frontend in Haskell and use the web framework Reflex and the functional reactive programming (FRP). The source code in Haskell is transpiled into the JavaScript code using GHCJS.

  • Elm

    Compiler for Elm, a functional language for reliable webapps.

    Elm is a purely functional language that features static typing (and generally looks much like Haskell) and allows creating web applications in the declarative style called The Elm Architecture (TEA).

  • servant

    Main repository for the servant libraries — DSL for describing, serving, querying, mocking, documenting web applications and more!

    We use servant library that allows us to describe API at the type level and check during the compilation whether both the server handlers and the client functions use correct parameters of the required types and correspond to the current API version (if you forgot to change the client function at the frontend, it just won’t be built).

  • coffeescript

    Unfancy JavaScript

    CoffeeScript is a more expressive – as compared to JS – language supplemented with Python- and Haskell-style syntactic sugar.
