the-perfect-bug-report
Reproducing bugs is awful. You get an issue like “Problem with Sidebar” that vaguely describes some odd behavior. Now you must somehow reproduce it exactly. Was it the specific timing of events? Was it bad data from the server? Was it specific to a certain user? Was it a recently updated dependency? As you slog through all these possibilities, the most annoying thing is that the person who opened the bug report already had all this information! In an ideal world, you could just replay their exact session.

Elm 0.18 lets you do exactly that! In debug mode, Elm lets you import and export the exact sequence of events from a program. You get all the information necessary to reproduce the session exactly, from mouse clicks to HTTP requests.
