Just discovered PureScript, which brings fun 😉 back into programming. Purely functional languages are frequently dismissed as impractical, and while that was somewhat true for Haskell because of isolated ecosystem, PureScript is what I always wanted 🤩 purescript.org

@maxd Do you think purescript will get the same momentum typescript has?

@botto I hope it does. In fact, with multiple compiler backends it could become even more powerful, so we could use it not only in browsers, but also for building mobile and backend apps. Depends a lot on how much effort the community puts into it and how many companies start using it. I'm definitely having a closer look. And when I'm prototyping any FP code, I now look at PureScript first and only then at Haskell if PureScript doesn't satisfy my needs.
