NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- In an effort to expand the Social Studies curriculum to include black history beyond February, Henry Barnard Early Childhood Center students started exploring the topics of slavery and freedom in January, reading about the Underground Railroad and its heroes, and working on two art projects commemorating Harriet Tubman and the enslaved people she helped to seek freedom.

Kindergarteners are creating their own quilt codes, inspired by those used by enslaved people on their flight to freedom, while first-graders are creating a mosaic of Harriet Tubman.

anthonybullard 1 hour ago [-] I get what you're saying - as someone who is very concerned about bundle sizes currently - but if you are using something like Elm door a help world, you are already losing. Elm is for complex, highly dynamic user interfaces that need a high level of durability and maintainability. Toy projects like the one you describe are useful for learning the language and it's patterns, but for practical purposes it's like bringing in a concrete truck to patch a hole in your driveway. Also, that bundle size is still smaller than react + react Dom. And you get the features of redux and immutable for free plus a solid, statically checked type system. reply ch4s3 1 hour ago [-] Yeah, bundle size isn't a real deal breaker, but it does make it a bit harder to roll into an existing project in small chunks. My main issue is the interop portion. reply anthonybullard 1 hour ago [-] I'd like to hear about your pain points with interop. I'll more than likely be talking to Evan soon and I can discuss with him. Also, he's pretty responsive in general. The community is pretty eager to help with these sorts of pain points - join the Slack. reply ch4s3 20 minutes ago [-] I think my biggest issue was the lack of any escape hatch for the development process. When you're trying to interop with JS and have to reason through the types that should be associated with the return value it can be a real slog if the JS returns a deeply nested object. I like that BuckleScript/ReasonML allows you to experiment with raw JS while figuring out the types. reply ... kbenson 3 hours ago [-] I'm not sure you understood what my point was. I was looking at reason as a replacement solution for my current stack, and the entire stack. That includes optimized multiprocessing code, processing daemons, ORM DB access (mostly a good query builder and normalized operations), a web framework, and HTML/JS page rendering/serving (I don't really care if it's rendered at the client or server level). Right now it's 90%+ Perl, which I'm for the most part happy with, and the rest is JS, which I'm not exactly thrilled to deal with (Perl and JS are similar enough in some respects to make the parts of JS they flubbed really annoying). The main draw of ReasonML for me was the ability to have a stack of a single language that reached all the way up to the client browser and all the way down to the multi-process data retrieval and processing system. What the current status quo looks like, from an outsider, is that ReasonML is used well by people familiar with the Ocaml ecosystem to supplement and write Ocaml through a different syntax. It's also used by people familiar with Javascript to write Javascript to supplement and write Javascript through a different syntax. It works well in each of these domains, and is able to use the ecosystem of tools in each domains, but where they meet gets a little fuzzy, the packages are sparse for both domains, and there's less people already working in that space (and I'm not interested in solving problems because I'm the first in this instance). This sort of comes to a head around the webserver and/or framework. There are choices in both Javascript and Ocaml. Some of the Ocaml suggestions seemed like a good bet because I could compile the server side to mostly binaries, but how well tested are they? How well built out with features? The ones I saw seemed a bit more bare bones than I was hoping, which might be expected from an ecosystem that has been mostly compiled and focused on application and systems code. So, do I choose Node and some Javascript routing framework and helper libraries? How does that complicate any code sharing I want to do, if there's different HTTP subsystems depending on whether I'm using a JS back-end or Ocaml libraries? I also looked at doing more JS for the back-end, and just using Node to run everything. Unfortunately, Javascript libraries targeted at the system leave a lot to be desired in my opinion, and I wasn't finding much in the way of a good ORM or query builder that I thought sufficient, and a good database abstraction layer. Again, I'm finding this middle-ground to be weakly supported. I'm seeing now from replies that there are Ocaml to JS transpilers that would possibly solve some of these problems for me by pushing more of the Ocaml stack to Javascript, but I'm also not sure how I feel about committing to what might be a fragile or error prone process, or how well that interacts with other parts of the system. In summary, it really felt like there are two strong sub-communities in ReasonML, the Ocaml systems people and the Javascript/React/Web people. They both have a growing ecosystem of packages around them, but they don't necessarily play as well with each other as they could, and getting to that point will allow ReasonML to fulfill a lot of its promise. Edit: As an aside, from a sysadmin perspective, it's somewhat troubling that the bucklescript toolchain fails to install through NPM as root. Leaving aside whether it's a good idea to have it installed as root (or for that matter whether NPM should ever be run as root), it bothers me that it would fail in some unknown way on a recent RHEL/CentOS system. Failing specifically because it doesn't want to be installed as root with a notice saying as much would have been acceptable, but having a bug like that exist makes me feel like there's not enough people using the system yet to shake out the bugs. It did damage my confidence in the toolchain somewhat.
