This is very exciting. Haskell has so much potential at the front-end and especially in a setting where code is shared with the back-end. I believe GHCJS being a fork and also the JS impedance mismatch with its lazy semantics have been holding it back. Here’s hoping for an upcoming Haskell front-end renaissance!
Haskell might be great for front end. All the composability you can get out of its type system, plus a powerful reactive programming ecosystem, and very easy refactoring.
Can’t wait for JS FFI
This isn’t just about Haskell on the front-end, but this is also a great route for server-side and embedded.
I haven’t written Haskell since college but this is cool as hell.
