Hey — Nice article :-)
Since there are a few things which seem a little bit one-sided, I want to provide some information on the
flow related part:
We also have a playground in flow, which runs in the browser: https://flowtype.org/try/
We sure do benefit from our tools, although it is not 100% apparent… maybe it is not apparent because of OCaml.
Although in my opinion, a programming language is not the major problem in contributing to the compiler itself..
It’s the complexity of the problem, we try to solve.
I don’t care in what language I need to write an AST-parser in… it’s usually the problem to understand how an AST-parser actually works…
Anyways, I personally like the choice of technology flow did and I am really happy to learn a lot from the OCaml community as well.
