Sorry, but I totally don’t understand this post.

It’s exactly what you are saying: slightly different. There’s no major difference between these languages to actually justify preferring one over another (Elm, F#, reasonml). OTOH, there’s a huge benefit sharing the same language on frontend and backend, like seamless serialization of complex data types, shared business logic when necessary, shared data validation for web forms and backend etc. The more SPA your app is and the smaller the team, the bigger the benefit. I’d much prefer f# or reasonml on both sides (or in some cases even just javascript — it is a functional language after all) compared to a combination of two different languages. And a binding is much smaller cost to learn than a whole language.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
