Following on from the What is Erlang’s gateway application? thread, what do you think is the gateway application into each BEAM language?
What is a gateway?
Many languages have a ‘killer app’ that serves as an important gateway into the language and community - they’re often the reason why people adopt those languages because it gives them a clear (easy?) reason to use them.
As an example, Ruby’s biggest gateway and killer app is Rails, Elixir’s is Phoenix, (in the early days) Python’s was Django, Swift’s is iOS app development, Dart’s is Flutter… you get the idea :upside:
Again like in the other thread, if you don’t think one currently exists for a BEAM language you like the look of… what would you like it to be?
