Elm: React Without Compromises

The world of front end development has been experiencing a major paradigm shift over the past few years. Frameworks have shifted from Model/View and Object-Oriented paradigm of Backbone, Ember, Angularjs v1, and dozens of similar smaller projects to a new paradigm embracing immutable data structures, virtual DOM, and functional programming. The primary catalyst for this has been Facebook’s React framework powered by the large budgets Facebook poured into engineering and advocacy, and perhaps seizing the opportunity created by the delays and rewrites associated with Google’s AngularJS v2 framework.
