New Draft: Simple and Efficient Higher-Order Reactive Programming

I've got a new draft out Simple and Efficient Higher-Order Reactive Programming. Here's the abstract: Functional reactive programming (FRP) is an elegant approach to declaratively specify reactive systems. However, the powerful abstractions of FRP have historically made it difficult to predict and control the resource usage of programs written in this style. In this paper we give a simple type theory for higher-order functional...

Week and month date pickers, cSP and no more “desktop-width” viewport directive

1,652 changes landed to the projects last week, 889 to Chromium’s repository and 763 to WebKit’s. The v8 project received 77 commits, quite a few of which were related to implementing the new Object.observe() feature. Web Inspector’s console messages now accept multiple formatting blocks by using %c multiple times. The new console.clear() method will, surprisingly, clear the console. An option has been added for disabling...

Functional Style of programming in JavaScript—Part I: Passing Functions

Higher order functions are central to functional style of programming. With these we canpass functions to functionscreate functions within functionsreturn functions from functionsRather than reaching out to classes to create reusable code, we can create small snippets of reusable code.Starting here, in the next series of blogs, we'll explore higher order functions in JavaScript. The concepts are quite the same to try out in other...
