What is Elm?

Elm is a programming language that you can use to build web apps. Elm is user-friendly, which makes it a great place to learn to build web apps. Elm is a functional language that compiles to JavaScript. It is a separate language from JavaScript, which means you must learn the syntax and language rules of Elm.

What are the advantages of Elm?

  • Elm allows you to write well-architectured code that is easy to read.
  • Elm makes front-end development simpler.
  • Elm provides light operations, which means it involves less fatigue than JavaScript. With JavaScript-heavy apps, a lot of tooling and frameworks can be required to make a simple app. Elm provides a lighter operation by being self-contained.
  • Elm comes with creative built-in tools, meaning you don't have to download other packages
  • Elm is easy to understand and use once you learn the language
  • Elm has no runtime exceptions, which can occur in JavaScript. Instead, Elm gives you warning messages.
  • Elm's warning messages are in readable language
  • Elm's built-in package manager protects code from minor errors
