Let's acknowledge it, Javascript has conquered the world. You've it on the web, on the server, on the desktop, on mobile... everywhere! Like the language or not, the truth is JS developers have built an incredible ecosystem with libraries and tools to do almost anything. If you want to enjoy all these development opportunities, does it mean there's no choice but dealing with duck typing, cryptic equality rules and undefined everywhere?
No! Fable (http://fable.io) is an open source compiler that brings all the power of F# to the JS world: the functional paradigm, static typing with type inference, pattern matching, type providers and more. Together with a comprehensive library to handle collections, text and observables among others.

Fable doesn't add any runtime overhead and generates clean JS code in conformance with new ES6 patterns, like modules or iterables, making it compatible with modern development tools, including Github Electron or React Native to let you develop not only web, but also cross platform desktop and mobile apps.
