TLDR; Do you have any suggestions on learning HTML when Elm is one’s primary(only?) browser language?
Hi all, I have a weird question.
I have been using Elm for about 1.5 years now and have never felt more productive. Until I started, I could write frontend code but struggled to deal with complex layouts without using helper tools like React/Vue and make heavy use of component frameworks like MaterialUI.
CSS makes sense from afar but becomes unmanageable when I get too close.
Lately as a fullstack developer, I have started seeing the value of having comfort with HTML for certain tasks. For example, email templates probably shouldn’t (probably can’t) be written in Elm and as a Phoenix developer Liveview is also looking extremely interesting.
It seems that for situations where Elm doesn’t make sense, HTML is king. My question therefore is, are there any resources that could be useful for people like me who fear CSS and raw HTML, but already have web design skills?
I use elm-ui if that matters.
