  • Ocaml for web development

    Here is link number 1 - Previous text "Lwt"

    I do only very basic web development but have been generally happy with it. One problem I hit was that mssql only works with one of OCaml's async libraries (Async) whereas multipart forms only works with the other, incompatible, async library (Lwt).
  • From TypeScript to ReScript

    I have to admit I don't know much about ReScript and only have very basic exposure to OCAML, here is how you do await in it:

    https://github.com/ocsigen/lwt

    The `let* in` is a generic syntax for monads, it doesn't need a special one just for promise. This was in fact a debate back when async/await was in consideration for ECMAScript, but special syntax is hip so now we have `async/await` for Promise, `.?` for optionals and `flatMap` for arrays, basically the same thing.

  • Dream – Tidy Web Framework for OCaml and ReasonML
    10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 9 Apr 2021
    Dream doesn't have much of a system call dependency footprint itself. It's basically just a convention for plugging request -> response functions into a web server. Some of its native dependencies will have to be replaced by Node equivalents. Soon after that, it would be portable to Node.

    There is already work underway to port Dream to Mirage, to run in unikernels: https://github.com/aantron/dream/pull/22

    Lwt, Dream's promise library, is itself getting ported to run on top of libuv: https://github.com/ocsigen/lwt/issues/813

    libuv is, of course, the I/O library that powers Node, so it might be practical to run Dream as a native node module very soon after doing this.

    (As an aside, I'm supposed to work on that libuv project, but instead I've been working on Dream :P)
