Elm Weekly - Issue #131
How to achieve a maintainable code base, what lies ahead for elm-review, Hacktoberfest + Elm, elm-music-theory, and generative multimedia experiences.
Articles and Discussion
Dillon Kearns discusses the idea that manageable codebases result from applying a process consistently, rather than from occasional refactoring marathons.
In this in-depth post, Jeroen Engels discusses the future plans for elm-review: editor and compiler integration, better performance, incremental adoption, making it easier to contribute, and potential use as an information gathering tool.
Also on the subject of elm-review, Jeroen invites us to take part in Hacktoberfest by contributing to elm-review. Jeroen provides really clear guidance so it should be easy to get started!
Dillon Kearns announced a live panel discussion about Elm Open Source with Aaron VonderHaar, Harry Sarson, Matt Griffith, and Ian Mackenzie on 3 October. There will also be an intro to Hacktoberfest contribution opportunities and Q&A sessions on intellij-elm, elm-review and dillonkearns/elm-markdown.
James Carlson has published notes for learning Elm, with a discussion of several example apps, and references to further reading.
Tools and Projects
Duncan Malashock has released a music theory library for Elm. In addition to the library documentation, there is a Gitbook that explains the domain concepts in this package and how they are modelled. Looks like a fascinating project!
Jeroen Engels has started a list of Elm people who would like to get sponsored, inspired by awesome-haskell-sponsorship.
That's it for this week!
