I think had I went the OCaml route instead of playing with Haskell, I would have just stayed in that ecosystem. The more I read it and the new ReScript, I can really appreciate what they are doing -- even if it's more limited than PureScript and Haskell.


@toastal indeed, I like too... and yes, rescript does answer some of the "terseness" of ocaml... I do wish opam were modernized though.

@tychosoft I have a feeling one reason (no pun intended) I passed up on it was that OCaml is really not popular where I'm from, the US. I almost never hear about it and everything I did tangentially was via other languages (or just from ReasonML advocates)
