What are some libraries you almost always use?


Hello fellow reasoners :rocket:,

I’m putting together some ideas for the standard library that will ship with Caramel, an OCaml-derived language for the Erlang VM that I’m building, and would love to hear what are some libraries that you normally use.

I’ll start with just a handful:

  • dbuenzli stuff: BOS, Cmdliner, Fpath, and Logs are almost always in my projects
  • JaneStreet’s sexplib always finds its way there
  • deriving_ppx

Which ones do you go for?

PS: If you’re interested, here’s the issue where I’m collecting thoughts on what the standard library should look like. It is definitely a larger stdlib than OCaml/Reason ships with, and that’s sort of the point.
