Do you have any plans for using ReasonML in react development any time soon?


If you mean in development of React itself, I don’t really see it happening over the next few years. It significantly raises the contribution barrier but being able to compile React itself into native code is not that valuable IMO. And a solid type system doesn’t really buy us that much with a relatively small React codebase. However, it may be valuable for something like WebAssembly in the future. So I don’t know.

If you mean for development of products with Reason, we’re already using React for Messenger. I don’t know if it will be used more widely in the future, we’ll see!
