Elm vs TypeScript Thoughts
View thoughts.markdown

Elm and TypeScript

  • Elm Task - An Elm specific implementation of Observables (more limited?)
  • TS and Elm - Once it compiles it usually runs (Provided you're following the warnings provided in either the compiler output (better) or editor (best) )
  • Editor and tooling support?
  • TS and Elm - Typed Langs
  • Most suitable for complete apps, not just a JS compiler
  • Enforces Reactive programming - Angular 2 (Observables) provides the same thing, just not forced.
  • Know TS, know JS. Able to contribute back to the community easier.
  • Object assignment kinda weird: { point | x = 42 } Reason? (overall weird sytnax)

Error using launchy with cucumber and spork.
View explain.markdown


This error occurs when I run this feature with spork. If I run it without spork, then it works as expected.
