    Congrats, Paul. This has been an insane journey so far

      Thank you! It’s been interesting for sure 😂

      Thought this was about Dark Basic at first! Interesting project. I got instantly distracted going through all your posts on Rust/F#/OCaml, since all are dear to my heart.

        Just to double check, is Darklang is still a closed sourced, subscription based platform?

        1. 8

          It is “source available”, not closed source. The repo is at https://github.com/darklang/dark, and nearly everything is done in the open (minus some security stuff). We have occasional contributors at the moment, some of whom are mentioned at the bottom of the article.

            Regarding subscription: the intent is to be similar to github or heroku - free for lots of uses, but also there are cloud bills and salaries to pay.

            Was Darklang the language used to get some team off of Elm and its limitations?

            1. 5

              We previously migrated off of Elm - that took much less time, about 2 months!
