5. Functional Frontend Development > Diving into WebSharper

Diving into WebSharper

The most well-known F# web application framework is named WebSharper. Of the options that I’ve presented, WebSharper is the most mature and most proven in production. One of the most well-known sites built with WebSharper is FPish, which is a full-featured online community for functional programmers. WebSharper is also being used in a number of companies, including Microsoft and Ford.

Like Pit, WebSharper compiles F# to JavaScript. However, it doesn’t limit itself to only the generation of JavaScript. Instead, it provides the ability to create all aspects of the full web stack in F#. This means that in addition to client-side and server-side code, you can also create markup in F#. Additionally, WebSharper makes the interaction between the client and server code trivial.
