Simple reactive scenarios with WebSharper

One of the most fundamental design considerations any developer must deal with is handling change. In this article, we are primarily concerned with client-side state and changes to it. Change can be brought about by various external factors (user input such as mouse or keyboard events, server push messages, etc.) or by means internal to the application itself.

The road to WebSharper 4

We started work on WebSharper 4 more than a year ago, open-sourced it in May and published first beta packages in August. It is a project with a big scope and still some features are planned before we would call it stable. This article is an introduction and also a status report.

A faster and slicker Try WebSharper

WebSharper - a year in review

Data-aware workbooks and client-side data access with WebSharper.Data

F# has always excelled at accessing heterogeneous data sources in server-side code through its unique type provider feature: a metaprogramming technique that enables generating (or "providing") domain-specific code to be consumed during compilation, such as generating typed schemas for relational databases, CSV and other data files, or bindings for web services and integration with other languages such as R. Type providers are given an optional set of arguments in your code using custom F# syntax, yielding a type space in return.
