I agree Imants

You are delaying the inevitable - if you wish to use a functional programming ecosystem like Erlang/OTP you will need to learn to write code in a  functional style and refactor it.

It is perfectly possible to write good FP code that is easy to refactor - the problem is that you don’t know how. And it sounds like you have inherited an OO-flavoured Erlang codebase...

Focus on learning that - rather than mating the OO goat to the FP camel - you will have a better time of it…
