I searched “js_of_ocaml” and “awesome” and didn’t find many gushy results, so I thought I’d fix that.
js_of_ocaml is awesome. Thank you for developing this! I can’t believe it’s now possible to deliver OCaml applications to O(billions) of people in a very low-friction way: through their browser!
I’ve been aware of this project for a few years now, so this may come as too late to the party, but I finally had the time to take a crack at it. It’s good stuff. The performance is great, even on my ten year old laptop.
I’m now actively going back through projects and rewriting every .js file I have access to as an .ml file because I’m so excited. The thought of writing new webapps in the future is much less daunting because I don’t have to settle for doing it in some super lame error-prone language. This is so life-affirming!
