IHP and elm - towards a functional web

At digitallyinduced we are working on IHP, the fastest-growing, open-source haskell web framework out there, because we believe functional programming to be the future. We want to make it accessible to everyone, even functional-programming-beginners!

To reach that goal, we have recently added an elm template, which allows you to get started with elm perfectly set up and ready to go in a new IHP project.

Getting Started

Getting started is as simple as installing the ihp-new command, and then running:

ihp-new --elm my-new-project
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You'll get a fully set up IHP project with elm in a new folder called my-new-project. Check out the Guide to learn what to do with the project, including where to find the elm code (hint: it's in my-new-project/elm/ ;) ), and how to deploy the project for free using ihpcloud!

Try it out, and tell us how you like it!
