What is everyone using to discover Clojure libs? Is there a resource similar to https://www.ruby-toolbox.com for Clojure? I’m aware of http://www.clojure-toolbox.com but was hoping for metrics similar to what Ruby Toolbox provides.

crisptrutski15:08:02

@jasoncof: perhaps the metrics on https://clojars.org/ itself are enough for you?

val_waeselynck15:08:35

@jasoncof: also check out all of ClojureWerkz 😉

jasoncof15:08:42

@crisptrutski: Thanks for the answer, Clojars has some nice metrics but it is missing the categorization, ranking, and social features of Ruby Toolbox.

jasoncof15:08:07

@val_waeselynck: Thanks! I will check ClojureWerkz out.

crisptrutski15:08:30

for popularity the best metric is probably github stars simple_smile

jasoncof15:08:53

@crisptrutski: yeah, good point simple_smile

crisptrutski15:08:54

http://crossclj.info can be interesting to discover stuff, and has “popularity” in terms of stats for usage..

crisptrutski15:08:23

but perhaps there’s an opening for your website that ties things together more 😉

jasoncof15:08:39

ha! yeah, perhaps

zentrope15:08:46

I just type in the subject matter + Clojure, then look for libs that seem well maintained, with responsive issue tracking, etc.

tom21:08:51

which channel is good to ask deployment questions?

markmandel21:08:18

@tom: I was going to suggest #C061V2K37 ... but not a huge amount of people there. What are you deploying - maybe just ask here.

tom21:08:03

Send uberjars over to an EC2 instance and stop the old and start the new--with the capability to start the jar on reboot, etc. I have seen an option (from a blog I don't recall but it's a popular one on clj) that requires adding code to my project for starting and stopping. But I don't want that. Would it work well to write a daemon or something?

tom21:08:37

I'll try asking more details in devops and see what happens haha

noisesmith23:08:09

tom: I use jsvc for this

noisesmith23:08:25

it has a stop command, start, puts output in log files, etc.

tom23:08:27

@noisesmith: check out #C061V2K37 but also that's what I was referring to in my question there, jsvc and adding code to my project for that stuff I wasn't up for.
