An Introduction to Elm

Evan Czaplicki .GitBook. 2016-09-08
Elm is a functional language that compiles to JavaScript. It competes with projects like React as a tool for creating websites and web apps. Elm has a very strong emphasis on simplicity, ease-of-use, and quality tooling.
This guide will:
•Teach you the fundamentals of programming in Elm.
•Show you how to make interactive apps with The Elm Architecture.
•Emphasize the principles and patterns that generalize to programming in any language.
By the end I hope you will not only be able to create great web apps in Elm, but also understand the core ideas and patterns that make Elm nice to use.
If you are on the fence, I can safely guarantee that if you give Elm a shot and actually make a project in it, you will end up writing better JavaScript and React code. The ideas transfer pretty easily!
