Brunch is a great solution. It is fast, easy to set up, and reduces boilerplate.
Elm has an easy way to get started called StartApp. I recommend trying it out and reading the source.
Brunch and Elm
If you’d like to use Brunch with Elm, I made a Brunch skeleton for StartApp here: https://github.com/ivanoats/elm-brunch-starter
You can simply brunch new gh:ivanoats/elm-brunch-starter APPNAME to try it out. You’ll get a working “Hello World” start app and build process, ready to go.
It didn’t take long thanks to the great work already done by Mads Flensted-Urech on https://github.com/madsflensted/elm-brunch
It was also inspired by Mike Clark’s Building Reactive Web Apps video course at Pragmatic Studio, which I’d highly recommend.
