The official elm-todomvc uses localStorage to persist state. Since most real-world elm apps will interact with a web api to persist state, this is a simple elm todo app demonstrating interaction with a simple json api server.
Additionally, the code here has about 10x the modularity of the official implementation.
This app is sparse on css on purpose.
The code is heavily-documented. If something is confusing, submit an issue or PR and I'll improve the documentation there if possible.
I recommend following roughly this order for checking out the code:
Main → Models → Messages → Update → View
then in the
Todos.[Models → Messages → Update → Commands → View → Edit]
then if you're feeling confident:
If you haven't installed Elm 0.18 yet, do so here.
elm-todo-rest-api 0.2.0 is compatible with Elm 0.18. If you're still on Elm 0.17, download elm-todo-rest-api 0.1.0 here.
First, clone this repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/andrewsuzuki/elm-todo-rest-api.git $ cd elm-todo-rest-api
Then install dependencies:
$ npm install $ elm package install
To play with the app, first start up the api:
$ npm run api
All changes will be reflected in
Then, in a new terminal window run the following to start a hot-reloading dev server through webpack:
$ npm run dev
Visit http://localhost:8000/ in your browser and you should see the app!
Make some changes and see what happens.
