  • package.elm-lang.org

    website for browsing packages and exploring documentation

    Aside from syntax, what you probably need is https://package.elm-lang.org. Default (built-in) functions can be found at elm/core, while other stuff relating to building web application can be found at elm/browser. Take a look at other elm/... packages too, they are written by authors of elm.

    My book introducing you to Elm!

    I am continually perplexed how poor the official documentation is for Elm (https://guide.elm-lang.org). I love the language, I really enjoy working with it, but where does one go to see the complete API? In particular right now I'm trying to find more on setting various events and accessibility attributes in forms, and this is all I see on the official docs: https://guide.elm-lang.org/architecture/forms.html. Not even a label example on a form page? How is this considered good documentation for a language that has been around for a decade? Is there some secret handshake I need to learn to get access to more in-depth documentation of the language?

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
