hi. i am trying fsharp for the first time. i want to do some webdev and use the oppurtunity to learn fs. between websharper and suave, which framework should i go for? I prefer smaller frameworks which dont have too much "magic". Hopefully with non blocking server calls. Most importantly, easy to get started with. the app i want to make will be a simple post/artucle aggregatr with oauth2+Google for login.

suave on server side + fable on client is a really nice combo

I don't have a framework - it's just a showcase of using suave together with fable and elmish

it's like elm but better (at least if you also use suave)

maybe suave.io is too simple for its own good?

maybe a term difference? one uses a library (which means it works with your application) the other uses a framework (which means your application will work with it).
