Various JavaScript toolkits have been offered the past few years to enable the use of functional patterns on the frontend. While these tools promote composable APIs and pure functions to a certain degree, UI programming is still encumbered with stateful MV*-like frameworks, or just plain dirty DOM manipulation.
