Spotted by Jeremy. The authors write:

"Hop is a new higher-order language designed for programming
interactive web applications such as web agendas, web galleries,
music players, etc. ...

"As far as we know, the closest work to Hop is due to Philip Wadler and his colleagues. The Links programming language shares the goal of Hop. As Hop, Links is a functional language that manages transparent function calls across the web. In contrast to Hop, it relies on a single syntax approach. That is, the GUI stratum of Links programs is compiled to JavaScript before being executed on the client. Links seems less advanced than Hop because, as far as we can tell, it does not support construction similar to service calls and it does not support event loops."
