Just like React uses JSX, Elm should use Elmx.
This is much easier to write and to read, and just like JSX, it is converted to native elm.

This will make it much easier for the user to use Elm, rather than poky elm language.
Please consider adding this to the book.

This is more of a personal preference than a language standard so it makes no sense for it to be in the book.

I know using plain old function calls instead of a template can get some getting used to, but believe me, it makes life so much simpler once you've adjusted to it!

Plain function calls are overwhelmingly how it's done in the Elm community, and I think I'd be doing everyone a disservice to teach it any other way. smilie
