Really nice article! I wonder whether you and Dillon could devote a podcast to reusable components (re your mention of this in the article.)


@eimfach Oh! I also found this error in my iPhone. Is any body have the solution of this. Please share with me. :sleepy:

Working on a web-app using only elm in the frontend in a team of more than 4 developers with more than 100000 lines of elm, I can totally feel you.
I learned my frontend skills with elm. To me, JS/frontend wasn’t really appealing. Without elm, I would have certainly been still just a backend developer.

When I came into the company I’m working in (through the elm slack #job channel ;), doing some refacto was extremely easy and as you said, I could easily understand the patterns. Most refactoring job is stressing and not fun at all, but with elm, it’s indeed really satisfying and safe!
