Issue 46

With two kids, a startup, a huge queue of books to read, and few time-consuming hobbies I don't time to play computer games. Only in rare cases when I do long-term travel, or during Christmas might I play one or two classic SNES or Sega Mega Drive (Genesis) games. I…

Issue 45: trees

Every 5th issue of this email I do a small dive into a specific topic somewhat related to Elm. You can read all these issues under the special tag. As I was thinking which area to cover this time, I wanted to return to testing again due to selfish motives.…

How many people know who Justin Kan is or what Justin.tv was about? Weirdly I do remember the moment it launched. It was a service where initially Justin, and later anyone could stream their lives 24/7. That sounded really weird and strange, but at the same time it…

I love rabbit holes. There are so many interesting things I don't know, and that's why I can easily get lost. Sometimes this can lead to some bizarre and dark corners of the Internet. Sometimes you can get a new and exciting hobby thanks to that (how I got into…

This release is accompanied with a large "release note" where Andrey describes the performance improvements made to the library, new shape types, and where the development is heading. Code contains an interactive demo where you pick the table and can…

Issue #40: Functional programming

Every fifth week I make a special issue covering particular topic of Elm. You can find them all under the special tag. Elm is my first foray into the world of functional programming (Python's functools don't count), and in the absence of constant practice I decided to start this newsletter…

Issue #39

The life of a file is one of the first videos I watched about Elm in order to figure out how to structure your code. In there Evan discusses how to grow your code. What should you do when your file contains 500 lines of code, 1000 lines, or 5000…

Issue #38

I think I haven't used Elm enough to fully embrace the concept of elm-css, and still prefer to have it separate from the application code. And just recently thanks to Hans Hoffman I found out about global css variables. In his blog post titled "Dynamic css themes with Elm" Hans…

Issue #37

It's not often that something fundamental gets updated (not talking about Elm this time). This week saw the release of updated elm-test with some changes. As a result it got lighter, quieter, and faster. The great guys Dillon and Jeroen from Elm Radio Podcast have released a new episode: Impossible…
