Introduction This is the fourth in a series of articles exploring the Gleam programming language. The first article explored some of the most basic features of Gleam; just enough to say hello. The second discussed looping constructs, namely that gleam doesn’t have them. The third was supposed to be about parallel programming and OTP, but it ended up being more about looping and recursion. So this one is about parallel programming and OTP.
Introduction This is the third in a series of articles exploring the Gleam programming language. The first article explored some of the most basic features of Gleam; just enough to say hello. The second discussed looping constructs, namely that gleam doesn’t have them. This one was supposed to investigate how Gleam integrates with Erlang’s famous OTP library for concurrency and fault tolerance. But I got sidetracked and ended up doing a second article on recursion and tail recursion instead.
(Original published September 30, 2021. Updated May 7, 2022) Introduction Most of my Rescript series so far has been about combining Rescript with React using create-react-app. Now that I understand Rescript better, I’m not so sure create-react-app is a good fit for it. Mostly because it’s slow. Rescript compiles JSX natively, so we shouldn’t need slow and hard-to-configure webpack. Most of create-react-app is about hiding the configuration of webpack from the end-user.
Introduction This is the second in a series of articles exploring the Gleam programming language. The first article explored some of the most basic features of Gleam; just enough to say hello. Hello is basically the first thing we learn in any language (whether human or programming). This article explores looping in Gleam. More specifically, it explores the fact that Gleam doesn’t have any looping constructs. That’s right: none.
Introduction I was basically flat with an illness (yes, that one) on my back for two weeks in March. I could do little more than read articles on my tablet, and for reasons I cannot explain, I began chainsmoking the documentation for as many little-known languages as I could find. I honestly don’t know why. In the fog of illness, it just seemled a fun thing to do. I’m weird.
Introduction I’ve been writing plenty about Rescript this year, although I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus to focus on developing a couple (Rescript) open source libraries. I wanted to get back into blogging to answer one of the most confusing questions in the Rescript community: What is ReasonML and how does it relate to Rescript? However, it has grown into something quite a bit bigger. Instead, we’ll be talking about the relationships between a collection of several interrelated languages, and I’ll give my opinion on which you should use.
