I’m happy to announce the first good release of Purview. By good I mean I found myself having a good bit of fun writing a website with it.
The features, which are an assortment of things I’ve found nice across the ecosystem:
- Side-by-side styling for HTML
- State can be broken apart into smaller units, although you can still Elm it up and have one large event handler at the top
- Server side rendered
- Easy access to IO in handlers, with changes always run in green threads to avoid blocking
- Type safe events
- Basic hot reloading via ghcid
My focus has mostly been on the ergonomics of use, so it’s still missing plenty and performance has not been considered at all. One aim was to be able to call an existing library of code easily and get a website going quick!
I’d love to hear your thoughts and feel free to message me
