@Benjmhart that’s a good point about Halogen and hot reloading. Thanks for the link! I’ve also added
pscid to the list of tooling, because I’d forgotten about it – I find the compile / error loop to be quite fast in VSCode and Vim with the IDE server, but I’m not waiting on Parcel or Webpack.
@cprussin That’s good to learn about. I wasn’t aware you could do this with Yarn, and it’s one more reason to move away from
npx. I’ve updated the post to include this information.
At this point you can easily get away with managing a PureScript project with only Yarn installed and then using it to install the compiler, Spago, and Parcel. That’s a reasonably lean set of tools. I have a soft spot for managing everything with Nix, but I don’t think that’s a reasonable suggestion as the default for most people.
