Do search engines, particularly Google, render JavaScript created from transpiled Elm code when crawling? Can they follow links, even internal that modify the existing page?

    Why not test in fetch and render tool yourself. And provide a example of your internal links like(example.com/page#tab1) and how it changes the content on same webpage?

Yes they have been able to do this for a while now. HTML generated after the page load is crawled and the links can be followed. You can read more about this on Search Engine Land - http://searchengineland.com/tested-googlebot-crawls-javascript-heres-learned-220157
