Book Description

This book teaches the programming language ReasonML by Facebook. It is also an introduction to functional programming. Especially people familiar with C-style languages (Java, JavaScript, C#, etc.) will profit from ReasonML's familiar syntax.

In short, ReasonML is a new dialect of OCaml with a toolset that’s more suitable for Javascript developers. It was initiated by Facebook as a way to improve how front end developers write code by avoiding lots of bugs caused by Javascript not having a sound type system.

The target audience of this book is web developers who are somewhat familiar with ReactJS and who want to learn why ReasonML is the future of ReactJS.

  • Hands on learning by building a real world app shell that includes client-side routing and more.
  • Understand Reason’s ecosystem including BuckleScript and various npm workflows.
  • Learn how Reason differs from TypeScript and Flow, and how to use it to make refactoring less stressful.
