Interactive programs without callbacks or side-effects. Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) uses composable events and time-varying values to describe interactive systems as pure functions. Just like other pure functional code, functional reactive code is easier to get right on the first try, maintain, and reuse. (by reflex-frp)

    There's other people around here who would like to know your opinion about these GUI frameworks! I haven't written a GUI in Rust personally, but my favorite GUI framework is not at all OOP:

    FRP solutions sound very attractive. But reflex seems to be stuck on the outdated GHCJS, and I haven't been able to get it to build. The newer JS output in GHC doesn't yet have DOM support. And even if I used one of those, figuring out how to interact with a LaTeX renderer might be tricky.

    I only have experience using Reflex, which I regard as the main contender for FRP UI libraries in the Haskell sphere. It's got a flashy website, but I think the documentation is a bit disorganized -- it took a long time for me to figure out how to get going with the library (you find some pieces of knowledge scattered here and there, if you look hard enough). My plan was to learn it well enough to onboard other people, but I don't think I could convince anyone who hasn't already decided that they're gonna make UIs in Haskell no matter the required effort.

    Once someone has spent a bunch of time with Haskell and sees the value, they will find Nix if it makes sense. Maybe they'll want to play with, or they'll discover they want a better way to package 3rd-party dependencies, or they start using NixOS and want to nix all the things, etc. etc. Or, maybe they'll never find a use for it, and that's okay.

    Reflex natively supports iOS, along with Android, desktop and web. I would recommend it for functional reactive programming in Haskell:

    It's been awhile since I've tried to get into Ubuntu Touch/Linux mobile development in earnest. I'm currently working on an app using the reflex framework that I hope to eventually target Android, iOS, Desktop, and Linux Mobile.

    If you're talking about the current Elm approach, I'm not sure. Otherwise, the paper I linked to notes some of the FRP libraries that existed at the time, some of which are still supported today (like reactive-banana), and otherwise I'd suggest looking at reflex, mentioned in the first post in this thread. I don't think it existed at the time the Elm paper came out.
