though I'm completely ignorant re. frontend development
I feel miso is a very good choice to refurbish the project
Indeed it is @ocramz . Another thing that I was thinking of was to completely rewrite the backend and make it a RESTful API using some other framework like wai or yesod which are much more used in the Haskell community
@NickSeagull what functionality would you put in the backend? the filesystem browser?
I'm having a good experience with miso but I don't get why certain IO doesn't work, for example listing a directory
so I wonder if it's a good idea to move that to a pure GHC backend
once I figure this out I'm ready to help with the haskell-do refactor
I was trying to figure out what miso is without digging into the code. What is it supposed to do?
@dataopt it lets you write both the visible part and the behaviour of a single-page application
in the "model-view-controller" style, i.e. a finite state machine
the model is the state, buttons and whatever inputs are the controller and view is the visible part of this
@ocramz I would basically put the filesystem browser, compilation, save file, etc...
@ocramz would be interested in what you might have in mind.
I've been thinking to put a websocket in chart-unit for a while now, then luna came along, and now I want to try something like that out.
I imagine it's beyond svg, so would have to learn about front-end and canvas, and miso might wrap it all up nicely.
@tonyday567 you might check the transient gitter for some of @agocorona 's latest notes on that.
