I just discovered Rustlings, which seems to be a good way to learn languages. Is there something similar for OCaml? Or can we refer to Rustlings to bring more inspiration to the improvement of the Learn section of OCaml.org?
I have heard very good things about Rustlings and I would try to support anyone motivated to build a solid OCaml counterpart of it. To my knowledge this does not currently exists.
The idea: Have a rustlings style tutorial for OCaml. The tutorial walks the user through a list of OCaml exercises, the command prompt directs them to the exercise they are supposed to solve and then as they work on the exercise a functionality like
ofronds watchcan recompile the exercise and let the user move on to the next exercise.
Yes, ofronds was a really cool idea of @gs0510’s and it was a lot of fun working on it together! However, none of us has time to get back to it. So, yes, please do pick it up whoever feels like it. I think the rustlings concept is a very nice way of getting familiar with a new language.
