There is a portion of my page that is being managed by Elm. It handles some filtering. When the filters change, I want to modify the current URL of the page (so filter state is remembered if someone bookmarks the page, for instance).
In Elm 0.18, I used
Navigation.modifyUrl and it worked great. It doesn’t look so straightforward in 0.19. In 0.19, it looks like these sorts of methods are only available if I create a
Browser.application. However, creating a whole application seems to mean that I’m handing the entire page over to Elm and I don’t want to do that. The portion that is managed by Elm is a tiny fraction of the page and I don’t want to figure out how to move all of the other code (that is server-generated) into Elm.
Is it possible to create a
Browser.application that doesn’t take over the whole page? Is there a way to use the
Browser.Navigation methods outside of an application?
Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
