Acknowledgments

  • Thanks to the OCaml team, obviously, without such a beautiful yet practical language, this project would not exist. The original type system was inherited from it with lots of modifications to fit with JS ecosystem better.
  • Thanks to ninja-build, ReScript also comes with a blazing fast build tool on top of it, ninja is a truly well engineered scalable build tool
  • Thanks to Bloomberg and Facebook. This project began at Bloomberg and was published in 2016; without the support of Bloomberg, it would not have happened. This project's funded by Facebook since July 2017

History

It was named BuckleScript and rebranded into ReScript in 2020. The major contributions from contributors include super_errors from Cheng and Cristiano, react_jsx_ppx from Ricky. Cristiano also contributed to several important patches in the upstream native compiler, in particular, the pattern match compilation.
