Discover the joy of ClojureScript for building single page applications, complex UI's, lightweight services and server side web applications. Design approaches common to ClojureScript & React will be covered along the way.
Projects covered here focus on the Figwheel-main development tool, the reagent library for react.js style applications, hiccup syntax for html content and ClojureScript code.
Re-write planned for 2021
Many enhancements have happened to ClojureScript since this book was created, especially around shadow-cljs which is not yet covered.
Content still relevant includes the TicTacToe game with ClojureScript, Reagent and Scalable Vector Graphics, the Practicalli ClojureScript YouTube playlist and building ClojureScript websites.
- figwheel-main - instant feedback for ClojureScript development
- figwheel-main project template - quickly create a figwheel-main based ClojureScript project
Heavy use of npm libraries required?
Follow the shadow-cljs documentation carefully and in detail if you wish your ClojureScript applications that work hand-in-hand with NPM and Node.js. Ensure the project runs on the command line first, before trying to run the project from an editor. Also check the documentation for specific configuration to ensure your chosen editor will work correctly with shadow-cljs
