    The compiler for ReScript.

    Sounds like you are mostly frontend. I can highly recommend ReScript https://rescript-lang.org/

    I learned a lot about functional programming from it.

    It is a more frontend focussed https://reasonml.github.io/ which is all based on OCaml. It has the same awesome type system and all the FP goodies while providing easy TS/JS interop and convenient escape hatches.

    It compiles (very fast) to highly efficient readable JS that you can use wherever.

  • reason

    Simple, fast & type safe code that leverages the JavaScript & OCaml ecosystems
