A more humble lisp interpreter in self-hosted Clojurescript, based on the one Eric Normand shared on the Apropos show:

One of the reasons I'm doing this challenge is to prepare myself for employment using Clojure, and one thing that's missing on my resume is a larger app using re-frame. I currently have a reagent app for learning the periodic table of elements: I'm thinking of building it up into something more complex, maybe demonstrating different chemical compounds and how they are composed. I've read the docs and gone through the TodoMVC example, but today I might just do that again for a thorough re-frame refresh.

re-frame is definitely worth investing time learning, even if you don't stick with the framework in the long run. There are lots of valuable ideas about how to structure your code within the framework.

Not a huge amount of 'coding' done today, however, there was a lot of new content added to my Spacemacs book for Clojure development. Also did some Clojure advocacy with a really interesting company this morning that is looking to start adopting Clojure for some of the computational intensive and transaction services.

currently i'm using cursive. I'm definitely going to have a look at your book: once i finish my first round 100DoC I'd like to invest 1 week to decide whether to move on with cursive or switch to spacemacs or mb vscode.


@U9QV64N86 I should be a lot closer to completing the Spacemacs book by the end of the 100 days, so good time to take a look. If you like a Vim approach to editing, love the keyboard, want to use Emacs for all your editing, then Spacemacs is a good choice. I would be interested to hear experiencs of VS Code with the (several different) Clojure plugins. I like VS Code over atom, but mainly because has all sorts of crazy keyboard combos (at least on Linux). Although also has a plugin called proton that makes it more like Spacemacs.
