Writing web-applications requires a lot of skills: HTML, CSS, XML, JSON and Markdown, to name but a few! This library provides OCaml syntax extensions for these web formats by:
extending standard OCaml syntax with embedded web DSLs. It has a quotation mechanism which parses HTML, CSS or XML to OCaml, and also anti-quotations that form a template mechanism.
using type-driven code generation to generate markup directly from OCaml type declarations. It is possible to mix hand-written and generated code to deal with special-cases. Most of the work is done at pre-processing time, so there is no runtime costs and the generated OCaml code can be manually inspected if desired.

This library is in beta, and full documentation is still being written. Some repositories which use it include:
