about this item

Discover the Erlang-like Elm reactive programming language by using it in real-world applications. This unique book covers what Elm is, its fundamental building blocks, and using it to build a sample web application. Furthermore, Web Applications with Elm will cover what else Elm can potentially do and includes a handy language reference in the appendix.
After reading and using this book, you'll be building applications with Elm and will be able to apply it to your professional development efforts.  
Reactive programming is a "new" paradigm for programming web applications. Of course, the concept is not new: it has been around for almost 20 years. Elm is a functional language that is based on functional reactive programming - although this term is not used by the creator of the language anymore - and makes writing graphical interfaces and user interface interactions easier and less messy than with JavaScript. 
What You'll Learn 
  • Work with Elm and its development environment
  • Use Elm's building blocks such as API access, forms, security, styling, streaming, and JavaScript interfacing
  • Put it all together with a sample application and explanation that covers the implementation details
  • Utilize Elm beyond the web application by using it in mobile, server (node), and more
  • Discover the future of Elm and its opportunities

Web developers new to Elm, with some experience with Erlang recommended. This book is for others curious about Elm and its potential beyond web development.
