In the previous post, we learned how to handle Maybe Elm Value. But our Application did not show a like button. In today’s post, we explain how we solved that issue. This post is part of the functional language series, and it is based on a remarkable book, Programming Elm Build Safe and Maintainable Front-End Applications by Jeremy Fairbank.
Where Is Like Button?
With code changes from the previous post, our application did not show working like button:
The root cause of this problem is how we make a final application from
Picshare.elm source code file:
src> elm make Picshare.elm
With that command, elm creates
index.html that was referencing
main.css and including
picshare.js. Without stylesheets, there was no like button.
We need to use
--output the option:
src> elm make Picshare.elm --output picshare.js
picshare.js a file. Now we have the correct Picshare application:
- use elm make –output option
