Just wanted to point out that the ReasonML issue that you brought up is valid... which is why the community said "We need to fix this!" and ended up creating ReScript!!!

rescript-lang.org/

Basically, ReScript is an effort to say "Yeah... this was confusing. Forget the rest and just focus on this piece, this is all you need".

Check it out... most of the downsides just disappear with this new direction, and the syntax is even closer to Javascript! Highly recommended, but I'm a fanboy so that's my disclaimer.

LMAO! Hopefully not! It seems like the community is in fact consolidating around ReScript, but... point taken!
