Elm Language

Lou Mauget JavaScript, Programming, Single-Page Application, Technology Snapshot Leave a Comment

This blog is about my dalliance with Elm; a purely functional, statically typed language that has type inference. It compiles to JavaScript. Functional programming is compelling, but heretofore, I’d only woven cherry-picked techniques into large object-oriented projects. In FP parlance, I’m partially applied! The times, they are a-changin’.

In this article, I’ll:
– touch on the reasoning for giving a nod to functional languages and data immutability;
– move on to Elm; a blazing-fast, statically typed, purely functional browser-side language that compiles to JavaScript and follows the principles of functional reactive programming;
– survey background items and the Elm environment;
– show a simple type-and-click application, followed by a more realistic To-do application;
– end with my impressions from functional-programming semi-outsider point-of-view.

Part 5 of the Solid Foundations Learning Series
This is an in-depth learning series focused on a specific application: a JavaScript-based suite of single-page applications optimized for use in a microservice environment. We focus on telling the story of “why” and “how” it was built.

 —

In Part 4 of this series, we learned the why and how of adding single-page applications to our server-rendered application. In this blog, we take a small step to the side and talk about our Vue.js app that is added to the reference application. We will specifically focus on how the Vue.js components are added and how the routing is completed within the SPA.

Part 4: Adding Smaller SPAs to An Existing Application

In our prior segments of this series, we addressed being able to add in pages to the application and have them automatically registered with the navigation. We also discussed having Markdown content associated with different pages of the application.

In this segment, we will talk about the philosophy of using smaller single-page applications in place of large ones. We’ll discuss how to add in a single-page application to this application. And we will dive into a couple of the example single-page applications and talk about how they were built specifically….

This is an in-depth learning series focused on a specific application: a JavaScript-based suite of single-page applications optimized for use in a microservice environment. We focus on telling the story of “why” and “how” it was built.

In part one, we reviewed how the base application was created by using the Express Generator command line tool. We also reviewed the folder layout, look and feel, and an overview of what each section of the application does. In this post, we’re going to dive in a little deeper to the application and explain the why and how of the navigation setup for this application….
