  • How do large projects prevent breaking changes?

    Statically analyze source code to see if you made any breaking changes. Static analysis can't catch all issues, but can at least detect obvious ones like incompatible type signatures. I know that Elm does this automatically; not sure if this is common in other programming languages.
  • OCaml to JS

    The Elm programming language could be what you are looking for. It's more similar to Haskell, but I have heard a lot of good comments about it.

    When I first came across Evan Czaplicki's "Compiler Errors for Humans" article and approach (expressed his landmark FP front-end language, Elm) I was gob-smacked. I had never realised how, or why, I had grown to accept the ridiculous, complicated, and often unintelligible, junk that passed for compiler "messaging", as being the norm.
  • Can there be a world without javascript
    1 project | reddit.com/r/webdev | 31 Mar 2022
    I'm not a huge fan of javascript and the fragility of the language. There are of course many frameworks and libraries that aim to help, but I found that they just added additional complexity. Several years ago I tried elm (frontend language), and had an amazing experience. It was simple to get started, code was exceptionally robust, and I had fun programming again. While its not for every project, I think it is definitely worth checking out.

    Even spec was tricky to get going, probably because I'm a clj newb, but it didn't seem to help me much. I ended up going to Elm and absolutely loving it though.
  • Are there realistic alternatives for JavaScript in where it stands as a language?

  • Enjoying Gloomhaven As a Totally Blind Player
    1 project | reddit.com/r/Gloomhaven | 5 Mar 2022
    Thanks. :) I've done a bit more reading and think I'm starting to understand how some of these pieces fit together. It looks like the Virtual Gloomhaven board is open source, and I've reached out to the developers to see if they have any thoughts on improving its accessibility. It'swritten in Elm, a language I'm not all that familiar with, but it seems like most of the HTML is generated in one or two files.
  • Thoughts on TypeScript
    4 projects | dev.to | 4 Mar 2022
    Transpiled languages were nothing new to the web dev community. Let’s see - we had CoffeeScript, Flow, Elm, GWT counts? sure why not, and of course TS (and probably more I’ve neglected). So we must ask ourselves why TS won, right? Well, at least I did.

    Functional paradigm is also excellent for state management, React+Redux took most of its inspiration from elm and functional reactive programming.

    For those interested, all of the code is open source (of course). We developed the browser front-end with Elm-lang (which at first was tricky integrating with phantom wallet).
