Clojure Data Browsersλ︎
Clojure has a strong focus on using the built in data structures (list, vector, hash-map, set) to represent information in the system. Tools to inspect data and browse through nested or large data sets is invaluable in understanding what the system is doing.
There are many
clojure.core functions that can be used to explore data structures and transform them to produce specific views on data.
datafy are recent additions to Clojure that provide a more elegant way of exploring data than the classic
New tools are being created to capture and visualize results from evaluated expressions (REBL, Reveal) as well as tools to specifically visualize
tap> expressions (Reveal, Portal).
- Editor data browsers - e.g. cider-inspect
- Portal - tool to navigate and visualise data via
- Clojure inspector - built-in Java Swing based inspector
- Reveal repl with data browser, also a
tap>source (semi-commercial project)
