I think Elm will be the norm soon. I haven't had a bad experience with it yet either. Even though I haven't used Elm for to long, I can't help but feel it's just the permanent way to go. I can't wait for it to be everywhere.


Can't see this happen.

Elm is awesome, but it's also rather different and self contained. Many (JS) devs sadly just don't like FP.

Ironically, FP-ness is general and transfers even to OO languages. E.g. JS's, reduce, filter, lambdas, etc.

Yeah, I understand your point FP to me is great but I just started programming and didn't like learning OOP with JS. So it was easy for me to switch paradigms or practices a little. Everyone has there preferences though.
