"This obsession to separate effects from the logic seems to require a lot of energy for no real purpose (even though it is logically correct). This is the image I have of Cycle.js and Redux-Loop (see above)..."
The statement you made (quoted above) and subsequent discussion are bang on IMHO. I've been tip toeing into Vue.js and it is like the complete opposite of Cycle.js. By opposite I mean Vue has it together, it's what you need to build apps and data is central.
I really can not help but sigh when I think of Cycle.js these days. Just glad to be past that dark age phase, maybe Vue2 can show me the light I seek. Well, just exploring how it might yet dovetail with my reactive flow now. There is good RxJS integration via vue-rx too.
The Elm video is also interesting. I met a diligent programmer/lawyer at a local Starbucks just after my clash with Cycle.js who was very into Elm. Then I met him again recently and he is now into PureScript and converting all the Elm libraries into PureScript. We live in interesting times :smile:
