Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Has Typeclasses and RankNTypes
Pro Type safety
Compiling should be your first unit test. A tight type system (static and hopefully strong) will catch many logic errors that are often difficult to spot through debugging. In languages like PureScript, if it compiles, it often runs properly.
Pro Modules can be compiled to CommonJS
Pro High performance FFI code
Pro Has row polymorphism and extensible effects
Pro Awesome web frameworks
Halogen (VDOM, similar to ELM)
And hit these up with Signals, Isolated/(Managed?) Components, powerful functions and FFI
Pro Easy to debug
Pro Clean syntax
Cor enables you to write large applications by providing a clean syntax, classes and a modular architecture to keep organized code, enforcing the writing of readable source code based on conventions.
Pro Cross platform
Pro Support coroutines
Cor support coroutines which can be chained, stopped, and synchronized, fitting very well into the web asynchronous world.
Pro Hot reload
Cor provides a smooth front-end development by furnishing a builtin hot-loader which resolves dependences and compiles source code on the fly, with just reloading the Web page. You will only need to use CLI tools to deliver a production-ready version of the app.
Pro Concurrent and parallel
Cor allows to synchronize coroutines by passing messages through channels, and supports the execution of many tasks in parallel, all of that by writing sequential code.
Con Lots of dependencies needed to get started
Purescript is written in Haskell, but meant to be used with Node.js. As a result, to get started , users must install ghc, cabal, node.js, grunt, and bower. Purescript also has its own compiler, and different semantics form Haskell, and so even after installing, there's still some overhead to getting productive with Purescript.
Con Restrictive FFI
Con Lack of good IDE/tooling support.
Con Slow compilation
On large project, for example Halogen
Con Work in progress
Cor is still a very much young project (as of November 2015) with just one contributor, few stars on GitHub and virtually no learning resources outside the official documentation.
