Not exactly a new thing, but the Clojure cheat sheet with tooltips containing summaries of content on http://ClojureDocs.org has been updated from summaries from 2014, to summaries from 2020! I was not aware of a data export of http://ClojureDocs.org content after 2014 until recently: http://jafingerhut.github.io

Hey everyone, our latest episode is a review on our favorite topics from 2019: https://clojuredesign.club/episode/062-2019-in-review/ It's a good overview of the topics that we've talked about, so it's a good place to start if you're curious about the podcast. Follow up in #clojuredesign-podcast clj 🎙️

This should probably go in #news-and-articles rather than #announcements

I've written a word game in re-frame. Actually it's been around for a while, but I have now translated it to English. Code: https://github.com/nathell/wordchampions, play: http://danieljanus.pl/wladcyslow/, backstory: http://blog.danieljanus.pl/2020/01/03/word-champions/

(not sure if this belongs in this channel – please let me know if not)

Where do you get the words from? Just stumbled upon "tions" - that doesn't seem to be correct. Also "Perth" - are proper names supposed to be allowed?

djanus13:01:07

The wordlist is this one: https://github.com/first20hours/google-10000-english. It does contain proper names and "tions", not sure why

p-himik13:01:58

Just found "MSGID". :D

"tions" is probably there because of the line folding.

p-himik13:01:24

Just as an idea - maybe it's worth it to check out other corpora, e.g. from https://www.corpusdata.org/. At least there they're divided by their origin so you might be able to find the most sensible set of words without too much trouble.

p-himik13:01:29

If you want to continue developing this game, here's another idea - add a difficulty level or a flag that allows a user to limit the words only to regular nouns.

But overall, a great word game, I love it. :)

Thanks for the feedback! And yes, I'm definitely in for better wordlists 🙂
