I wanted to know what are the first steps to start using rescript for someone who is new to web development.
I have installed “rescript-vscode” and then tried installing rescript (bucklescript) and compiling my .res file but it gives some errors.
can you point to the instructions you followed to install rescript? What errors do you get?
this should get you covered: https://rescript-lang.org/docs/manual/latest/installation
thanks for the reply @tsnobip
I followed the installation and it worked!

you can also init a project with
bsb -init my-project-name -theme react-starter
or any theme that you’d like, you can list them with:

Thanks a lot man, you’ve been very helpful today.
Now I realized that I know nothing about about rescript and related topics. Is there any course\book for newbies like me?
It’s still a work in progress but the official docs are becoming very decent thanks to ryppy’s efforts and there are a few books that cover more in depth usage depending on your use case. Regarding books I’ve heard of https://pragprog.com/book/reasonml/web-development-with-reasonml by @jdeisenberg if you’re interested in web development with rescript, but I haven’t read it yet
