Seed - A Rust frontend framework
Seed is a Rust framework for creating web apps with an Elm-like architecture. Seed developers settled on a hybrid approach, incorporating a React Hooks-like mechanism alongside the Elm architecture to facilitate the creation of components and management of component state.
James Carlson has released an improved version of elm-stat, including the ability to generate data with a given probability distribution.
Full Stack Engineer (Blissfully, New York + Remote)
Blissfully develops a SaaS management platform and is looking for someone to join their team in a (nearly) full-stack capacity. In particular, someone who really loves the process of taking a new feature from a rough idea into something customers will love. This journey tends to include DB schema design, GraphQL API design and implementation, and front-end interface building.
The stack for their platform is 100% AWS Lambda with TypeScript, serving a GraphQL API to an all-Elm single-page app (180k LoC after you remove generated code).
