Looking at the Elm language after reading this post from Jim Nielsen. Looks interesting, especially the model-view-controller pattern it’s uses for building web UIs. Yes, it’s not an approach that’s unique, and yes, it’s more-or-less the same pattern as one would use with React and Redux1. But I like how it seems baked into the language design. Not sure if that is was an accident (such a pattern generally works well with functional languages) or intentional, but the language seems quite suited for it. I’d be curious to try it out.
Ah well. 🤷
