  • Sorry, but I don't believe JavaScript is Ready for Business

    As a language JavaScript is too loose. Sure it's 'powerful' but in a scary way.

    The reason it's popular is because it is the only cross-platform option.

    However, for end-to-end development, JavaScript is not the only option. A much saner option is F# with WebSharper (websharper.com). You can pretty much do everything in one language F#. For the client side, WebSharper will generate JavaScript from F#. And on the server side you can use F# TypeProviders to access data bases, web services, etc. without stepping out of F#.

    Even HTML 5 can be done in F# using the HTML5 'combinators'. For example, the following is F# code:

    Div [Width "200px"] -<
    [ H1 [Text "HELLO, WORLD!"]
    P [Text "123..."]
    ]

    That looks very close to HTML (sorry I can't post the corresponding HTML here as its not allowed).

    Check out this video of a Web IDE built with F# and WebSharper:

    I believe F#/WebSharper makes the most sense for contemporary business web applications.
