What is Grain?

Grain is a strongly-typed functional programming language built for the modern web. Unlike other languages used on the web today (like TypeScript or Elm), Grain doesn’t compile into JavaScript. Grain complies all the way down to WebAssembly, and is supported by a tiny JavaScript runtime to give Grain access to web features that WebAssembly doesn’t yet support.
Grain is a tool in the Languages category of a tech stack.
Grain is an open source tool with 2.2K GitHub stars and 77 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Grain's open source repository on GitHub
