Elm, The Programming Language for Future Front-End Development
As we are going to discuss Elm further, we will display Elm’s benefits and advantages that would lessen your headache and frustration.
Friendly error message
How could error message in coding is friendly? Well, Elm could! The error message is very useful, as well as Ruby. If you do something wrong, it will detect, naming, explain, and give solution for you to fix. Here’s the example of error message if you use Elm:

Also, using Elm means there is no runtime error. Can you imagine? No nulls and “undefined is not a function” anymore!
Well-architect codes that keep growing in line with apps’ development
If we need to simplify Elm architecture, it’s very similar with Redux, as Redux has looked at Elm for inspiration. It’s a very simple architecture and has already built-in to the platform. It means you don’t have to setup lots of various libraries, but instead, you can start developing right away after installing Elm CLI.

Functional and efficient programming language
Elm is very similar to Ruby when it comes to the syntax. All parameters are separated by space after the function of a declaration, making a clean look for developers. The logic is also simple and effective.
