[erlang-questions] My quest for a decent way to make a GUI in Erlang

First of all, thanks Joe for feeding my magpie developer
<https://blog.codinghorror.com/the-magpie-developer/> syndrome with more
cool new stuff to look at!

Secondly, I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who remembers the idea
of building a GUI for a desktop app.  The default answer for most all
developers seems to be slap together a webapp--which is fine for a lot of
situations but there are definite advantages to a genuine GUI on a desktop
app.

Sadly it seems to be the case that a lot of developers are opting to learn
JavaScript and all the hacks needed to make that a viable platform than
learning better ways of doing things.  That seems to follow from the
"everything must be a webapp" school of thinking.
