Of course. There is no reason to think that FRP is limited to real-time
applications with complicated interactions.

Not myself, but there is a somewhat comprehensive tutorial  as well
as lots of examples  linked from the wiki.
I just want to stress the importance of the last tutorial section: FRP
is not a concrete design pattern, but rather a family of them. The
tutorial explains FRP as understood and implemented specifically by
reactive-banana. There are a number of other practical libraries that
use different notions, in particular of events.
