The Web and mobile applications are entirely written in OCaml, using Ocsigen. 
The developers will be integrated in the programming team: participation in

Continuing this thread, Anil Madhavapeddy announced:
I just wanted to thank Spiros for a great recent OCaml Workshop 2016 talk on his
work on the webstack and point to his talk:
(livenotes as it happened: )

And also one by Romaine on using Angstrom in his Mr MIME email parsing library:
(livenotes: )

I've (along with the rest of the MirageOS team) have started discussing the
integration of Angstrom (and its companion serialisation library Faraday) into
the Cohttp stack to simplify its parsing and reduce our dependency on
allocation-heavy patterns such as regular expressions, and expect to make
progress on this in the next few months (as well as try out Angstrom on
low-level libraries such as Mirage TCP/IP and DNS)

If you are interested, please get in touch with me and I can redirect you to the
appropriate issue repository for your desired features for those protocol
