Reason, also known as ReasonML, is a syntax extension and toolchain for OCaml created by Jordan Walke at Facebook. Reason offers a syntax familiar to JavaScript programmers, and transpiles to OCaml. Statically typed Reason (or OCaml) code may be compiled to dynamically typed JavaScript using the BuckleScript compiler.
The Reason community officially provides ReasonReact as a solution for React based web applications.
