Install ClojureScriptλ︎

Practicalli Clojure install guide provides the basis for development of ClojureScript projects.

ClojureScript is specified as a dependency in projects, which contains the language and basic tools for building projects.

🌐 Google Closure tools compiles ClojureScript into JavaScript. Compilation options can remove redundant code and minimise code to optimise download speed of the resulting JavaScript. The compiler also checks syntax, variable references & types and warns about common JavaScript pitfalls.

Figwheel-main provides a comprehensive tool for building ClojureScript applications. Changes are automatically reloaded in the browser on file save for instant feedback during development. JavaScript packages can be included via 🌐 CLJSJS or 🌐 NPM
