  • imba

    🐤 The friendly full-stack language

  • Recently I have been a huge fan of

    1. Imba (https://imba.io/)

  • haxeui-core

    The core library of the HaxeUI framework

  • Haxe Lang has some really nice UI frameworks including HaxeUI[1] and CoconutUI[2] which can both compile for the web using the javascript target. You get AOT type checking + compile-time macros. Haxe, I think, had the poor luck of coming about in the same general time as TypeScript which had a mega corporation propelling its hype and adoption.

  • urweb

    The Ur/Web programming language

  • derw

    An Elm-inspired language that transpiles to TypeScript

  • Tons of them, but I am most interested in the following for various reasons:

    PureScript[1] — been around a long time. Looks a lot like Haskell to me.

    Derw[2] — Elm-like, interesting integration with Typescript

    Amber[3] — smalltalk for js

    Rescript[4] — its been awhile since i last looked at this project (during a catastrophic rebrand) so I'm not sure where this project is at, but it did seem very promising to me at one point.
