I was thinking about the “mission statement” thing on the PureScript home page. I was motivated by Brian Marick’s concern with the mission statement in his tweet. The PS project’s “elevator pitch” accurately describes the current state of the project, but it doesn’t reflect the values and tastes of the PureScript community. The values and tastes of the project’s community and maintainers pretty well control its future direction.
There are lots of people who learned PureScript and love it – what about it do they love? What about PureScript do they want to ensure isn’t changed? Or, a more interesting question, what parts of other languages do you want PureScript to not adopt?
I’m interested to hear PureScript users’ answers to that latter question:
What parts of other programming languages do you want PureScript to not adopt?
