I’m currently researching using F# for projects at work. We’ve gone down the path of adopting Elixir in areas where we can but have integrations with legacy .NET/Windows – and like the idea of using F# over C# for these projects because of the similar mental models between F# and Elixir. Saturn is also explicitly developed with Elixir/Phoenix in mind, so it seems like we’re not alone in this thought.
The resources for F# on .NET core look great. If we were building a .NET core web api, I’d be looking at Giraffe and Saturn and probably choosing the latter and already be on my way to developing our new products.
However, when I look for F# on the web for .NET Framework I see almost nothing, with the few things that do exist archived on Github or not updated or talked about since 2014 or even earlier. My sense is that the F# community is so small that they had to choose one or the other and have intelligently put all their eggs in the .NET core basket – which unfortunately leaves us with C# as the only real choice for building a web api that targets .NET Framework.
Am I wrong? I really want to be. If so could someone please correct me and point me to some up to date resources?
