The Pure Functional Web:
Around the time React became popular, JS programmers started to get the idea that pure functional programming might be a good way to write web apps. Most of them still haven’t moved on to actual pure functional languages, even if a ton of ideas have filtered back down to them from platforms like Elm. But you can: Elm exists, and PureScript beyond that. Let’s review the state of the art: the Elm architecture, the core ideas of which lay the foundations for almost everything in the space, and how these ideas have been developed further in PureScript. We’ll look at some real, practical examples, but don’t worry, there will also be category theory.
