How to improve ClojureScript performance. Clojure-cookbook/4-14_read-write-clojure-data-structures.asciidoc at master · clojure-cookbook/clojure-cookbook. "Agility & Robustness: Clojure spec" by Stuart Halloway.


Spec Guide. Clojure programs rely heavily on passing around maps of data.

spec Guide

A common approach in other libraries is to describe each entity type, combining both the keys it contains and the structure of their values. Rather than define attribute (key+value) specifications in the scope of the entity (the map), specs assign meaning to individual attributes, then collect them into maps using set semantics (on the keys). This approach allows us to start assigning (and sharing) semantics at the attribute level across our libraries and applications. For example, most Ring middleware functions modify the request or response map with unqualified keys. However, each middleware could instead use namespaced keys with registered semantics for those keys. Entity maps in spec are defined with keys: - Format Data and Code.

Web development. Test Driven Development. Casting SPELs with Clojure - Home - Anyone who has ever learned to program in Lisp will tell you it is very different from any other programming language.

Casting SPELs with Clojure - Home -

It is different in lots of surprising ways - This comic book will let you find out how Lisp's unique design makes it so powerful ! This tutorial was adapted for Clojure, an exciting new dialect of Lisp running on the Java Virtual Machine. Clojure's syntax and API resembles Common Lisp, but there are enough differences to write a dedicated version of this book. Most of the time, we will say "Lisp" instead of "Clojure", since most of the concepts presented apply to Lisp in general - we will point out the places where Clojure handles things a little different. Since Clojure is based on the JVM, you will need to have Java installed on your system. For the examples in this tutorial, simply unpack the archive, open a command line tool and switch to Clojure's main directory.

So you're curious in learning this new thing called Reactive Programming, particularly its variant comprising of Rx, Bacon.js, RAC, and others. Learning it is hard, even harder by the lack of good material. Rx.Observable.prototype.flatMapLatest(selector, [thisArg]) Projects each element of an observable sequence into a new sequence of observable sequences by incorporating the element's index and then transforms an observable sequence of observable sequences into an observable sequence producing values only from the most recent observable sequence.

Interactive development is a big win. Being able to evaluate snippets of code without building and running your entire project makes it faster to test code. Being able to modify code and data in a running system allows you to experiment with data and operations immediately.

Nevertheless, it's the best source I've found so far. Clojure is a modern variant of Lisp-1. The following comparisons are to the "original" Lisp. As in Lisp, code and data have the same syntax. Numbers: Clojure has integers, floating point numbers, and ratios. Integers include decimal integers (255), octals numbers (012), hexadecimal numbers (0xff) and radix numbers (2r1111), where the radix is an integer between 2 and 36, inclusive.

Moment of understanding what logic programming is about. We begin with a high level overview of the purpose and basic syntax of core.logic and then show a small example of the sort of questions logic programming attempts to answer. With that understanding in hand we build up from the basic logic operators to simple programs. Functional Thinking. This series aims to reorient your perspective toward a functional mindset, helping you look at common problems in new ways and find ways to improve your day-to-day coding.

Functional Thinking

It explores functional programming concepts, frameworks that allow functional programming within the Java language, functional programming languages that run on the JVM, and some future-leaning directions of language design. The series is geared toward developers who know Java and how its abstractions work but have little or no experience using a functional language. Thinking functionally, Part 1Learning to think like a functional programmer Functional programming has generated a recent surge of interest with claims of fewer bugs and greater productivity. But many developers have tried and failed to understand what makes functional languages compelling for some types of jobs. Learning the syntax of a new language is easy, but learning to think in a different way is hard. Dave Ray - Building User Interfaces in Clojure with Seesaw.

BTW, if you were there, regular meeting of the Western Mass Developers Group are every other Thursday at Panera Bread in Hadley (7pm) — most of the time, we just sit around and talk — very informal — hope to see you there. Back to the presentation — hopefully the slides/video/etc will be up somewhere soon — Rich focussed on the concurrency features of Clojure (Vars, Refs, and Agents). First he showed us the state of concurrency support in Java/C# today (locking) and identified the problem as having direct references to mutable objects.

Parsing NZB files For the purpose of the tutorial I have chosen a simple and fairly well known XML file format: NZB. Let us start by creating a new project (for details on using Leiningen, see this guide: Now edit project.clj to contain the following: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs. Introduction to Clojure. Clojure is simple, easy, fun, and very cool. Some have said that Clojure — or a language very much like it — is the future of programming languages. Overview Clojure is a modern dialect of Lisp, targeting the JVM is designed for functional programming and concurrency, and is therefore all about immutability interoperates with Java has many interesting features such as features macros, agents, transactional memory, transients, multimethods, protocols, and namespaces is homoiconic was created by Rich Hickey The current production version is 1.4.
