About the Book

*Note: The price will start low, but as the value increases, so will the price, get yours now!*

You will learn the following topics:

  • Set up an online development environment in Cloud9.
  • Installing and using the Elm platform.
  • Architect bigger Elm applications.
  • Navigation and routing the Elm way.
  • How to communicate between modules using the Elm Architecture.
  • How to perform HTTP requests and parse JSON into Elm types.
  • Deploy a real-world single-page application.

Grown tired of installing and configuring multiple build tools, integrating several JavaScript frameworks and libraries, refactoring applications to work in an event-driven fashion, and countless other issues that arise when building web applications, I started looking for a better alternative, there had to be something!

I stumbled at Elm a couple of years ago, but it wasn't quite ready, it had the concept of Signals which was off-putting at first, I ran into a number of errors when installing and running Elm code, and you had to install it through the Haskell environment for it work which was an issue for people not familiar with Haskell.

But the story is different now, by removing Signals the Elm architecture appeared making it much simpler to develop applications, we can now install Elm with a single command by just having Node installed, there are a ton of packages ready to be used, the tools that come with Elm are awesome and build tools are optional.

Join us in this journey where we will build RecipeVault, a single-page application where you will be able to register, login, search and store recipes as favorites, all of it using the Elm programming language. See you inside!

About the Author


Reading through a lot of theory and ending up with a hello world application is really annoying. We believe you should start with some foundations, but while getting your hands dirty, as this will help you understand the theory as you go.

You drive our priorities when deciding what content to release first, and what we should focus on. We will stick within a range of technologies, but the subtopics are for you to decide!
