This is functional programming pattern inspired by the Elm Architecture for building user interfaces.
To get it running:
git clone https://github.com/ccorcos/elmish.git cd elmish npm install ln -s .. node_modules/elmish node server.js open http://localhost:3000/
entry.js to select the example you want to run and work your way through the tutorial.
- It should be trivial to reuse UI components without rewriting them.
- You should be able to create N instances of your app side-by-side without iframes.
- Virtual DOM and data fetching requests ought to composable.
- Pure, Stateless, and Declarative
- The UI should be a pure function of state.
- There should be no side-effects tied to the render cycle.
- Declare what your want, not how to do it.
- No global variables.
- Serializable States and Actions
- Trivial event tracking
- Send states and actions to the server on any runtime exceptions.
- Record user sessions and run predictive testing.
- Time-travelling debugger.
- Record and save flows to different corners of the app.
- Generative testing by using the app.
