Over the past year or so, I’ve reluctantly come to the conclusion I need to leave Elm and migrate to some other language (most likely Bucklescript via philip2), and I definitely cannot recommend it to anyone else. This post is about my reasons for that, which are mostly about the way in which the leadership behave.
If you are considering picking up Elm, it’s worth reading this cautionary tale first. Keep in mind that it is one person’s perspective, and there is always more to the story. That being said, this is not an angry rant, but a long, deeply thoughtful criticism of Elm’s community.
