I’ve been looking into Elm a bit lately, and to my (very untrained eyes) it seems like a really cool language to build safe apps in, although someone who knows what their talking about might be able to judge that better (I see @dirvine is following their creator on twitter). It’s also a faily new language/community and might be easier to approach than more established communities.
Maybe get a safe-elm-api?
Anyone familiar/using Elm here in any way?
Edit: Since this became it’s own topic, might as well put in a video that showcases the actual code a bit as well. The live coding part of this vid starts around 15-16 min.
Elm seems like a very nice language. I built a Conway’s life inspired cellular automata simulator in elm a couple years ago. It was rather slow at the time (I don’t think their native map was very performant).
It was only through Elm that I really started understanding some of the principles of functional-reactive programming (not continuous time… I think that’s actually kinda pathological and certainly unnecessary for most scenarios). I guess Elm has officially migrated away from FRP, and I haven’t looked at it since then, but I hope they have kept their model of harnessing Mealy Machines to structure GUIs.
