Did you use Gleam for some specific problem that would be more difficult to solve using just Elixir?

Thanks for commenting. Honestly, no. I haven't written much in Gleam at all. Given that it targets the BEAM I imagine it will one day be good for similar problems as Elixir. At the moment it is quite young and I struggle to figure out how best to use it. My main interest is that I really enjoy working with Elm as a simple, clear language with a strong static type system and a friendly compiler and to the degree that Gleam has similar goals but targets the Erlang VM I would like to see it succeed.
