I’m looking to build a “game-story dialog” editor, data gets stored in JSON file, the JSON should be manipulated by friendly GUI Elm app with dropdown menus, radio buttons, textlabel, inputboxes, scrollbars etc to create more editable storyboards and substories. You know, it’s basically just a tool to write stories in a glorified story diagrams or in other simple GUI format.
At some point it has to become a PWA (not high priority), but I don’t want it to be a browser only thing forever.
That leads to next fear:
- I would like to build webapp rather quickly, I don’t want to spend months (or even years) learn Functional Programming to learn another month(s) to learn Elm. Can I just learn and use Elm comfortably and productively in matter of weeks, or is there some long road ahead?
I have a somewhat experience with React but I’m eager to try a new better/framework to main, it’s going to be Svelte or Elm… or React, but I’m not a fan of “you have 30 framework addons (routing) to solve the problem X”.
