Reason web servers/framework and ORM suggestions? : reasonml
[–]cies010 3 points 1 month ago 
I'd compile to native, and not go with Node.js for the server-side.

See http/af for a modern, fast, alternative to cohttp (or FWs based on cohttp, like opium).

There are several libs in OCaml land to help interface DBs. While OCaml features OO, it is often avoided (in which case ORM kind of a mis-nomer). The translation part, from SQL-queries/records from/to OCaml-statements/records, may still benefit from some kind of mapping. Solutions exist, but are not too plenty and nether very well maintained.

Thanks, http/af looks interesting, I'll definitely be taking a look. I was hoping the server side would be Ocaml (I'd much rather much around in that if needed or to get a better understanding of something than JS).

Yeah, I could make do with a really good query builder with some good preconfigured queries and a tool to autogenerate the records from the schema. I find having the records generated is simple, but takes a lot of drudgery out of schema changes, and a good set of pre-built but extensible queries goes a long way towards normalizing certain operations and filling out improtant parts of your library of application utilities. Small unnoticed differences in queries leads to annoying bug reports.

While OCaml features OO, it is often avoided (in which case ORM kind of a mis-nomer).

Well, that's just as easily accomplished with good a set of utility functions, so I'm not too worried about that. Query to records would be nice, but coming from mostly a dynamic background WRT database access, I'm not sure how it would handle additional fields, joins. Something new to learn I guess.

The ginseng web
Kevin Hartnett. The Boston Globe. August 25, 2016

Harvard historian Shigehisa Kuriyama tells ginseng’s story in an essay collected in a new book “The Botany of Empire in the Long Eighteenth Century.” The book examines how the growing global traffic in plants — for medical, economic, and scientific purposes — shaped colonial expansion in the 1700s.

//

At the time Joseph-François Lafitau discovered ginseng in Canada, the North American colonialists had a trade problem. They were hooked on tea from China and were hemorrhaging money to import it. Ginseng, which turned out to grow as far south as the present-day Carolinas, was the perfect solution.

“For Americans, [ginseng] funds their addiction to tea,” says Kuriyama. “It’s the one commodity Americans have that the Chinese really wanted.”


This trade dynamic flourished as the 18th century went on: When the first American ship sailed to China under the US flag, its hold was full of ginseng and it brought back mainly tea.

Things weren’t so easy for another tea-addicted country, however: Britain. The British loved tea even more than the Americans and sent huge sums of silver to China to fund their habit. They didn’t have ginseng, so they went looking for another crop to swap and settled perniciously on opium.

Literary landscape: Coleridge's Somerset - Telegraph
"You cannot write a great poem unless you are a great poet. Opium by itself would not produce it, but Coleridge knew how to use the drug to contribute to his art."
