    This article reminds me that I want to play with Coconut (http://coconut-lang.org/) some more.

      Great article. The “functional runtime” mentioned towards the end reminds me of Gary Bernhardt’s “functional core, imperitive shell” concept. He talks about it some in this talk: https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/talks/boundaries

      Gonna need to re-read a bit to get my head around the “actions as objects” idea, but good stuff overall.

        There is also a talk by @pushcx which explores a similar direction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFpXKLSREQo I found it very interesting.

          To give credit where it’s due, Bernhardt’s Boundaries talk directly inspired the experimentation that became that talk.

      2. 1

        Article talks about functional javascript. Probably a good time to talk about some of the functional babels.
