Also, did you use a template to initiate your project? They tend to have instructions on how to do a production build (minified) in their readmes.

Ah, I see now that you got some help in the #re-frame channel

Just finished. Clojure for the brave and true, and was planning on ordering the Joy of Clojure…Are there any big differences between 1.6 and 1.8 I need ot be aware of?

manutter5112:06:25

@patrick.hildreth I don’t believe anything in 1.6 would break in 1.8. It’s mostly new stuff that was added.

manutter5112:06:26

1.7 adds transducers and reader conditionals, and 1.8 adds some new string functions and what I’d call “internal improvements” (support for socket servers and direct linking).

Guys..they say clojure is slow

suryapjr17:06:20

But does that matter ?

vale17:06:03

slow compared to what?

suryapjr17:06:05

Leiningen is slow because it is written in clojure itself(somebody said)

vale17:06:16

it's definitely blazing fast compared to ruby for example

bronsa17:06:46

clojure is slow at loading loads of code and that’s what people mostly complain about

vale17:06:04

leiningen is often slow because it's reloading lots of libraries and "compiling" them at repl-runtime

bronsa17:06:17

the runtime performance are pretty good and often on par with java’s performance

dpsutton17:06:10

and slow isn't a problem. too slow is a problem but it is measured. Python is "slow" and there is a huge productive world of "slow" python code out there.

suryapjr17:06:37

That's what I argue about clojure

suryapjr17:06:36

I want to choose between elixir and clojure

suryapjr17:06:43

Can you guys help

vale17:06:57

our opinion MIGHT be a bit biased lol

dpsutton17:06:10

nope. "too slow" is something you measure. do some experiments in both. pick one that is "fast enough"

dpsutton17:06:17

else pick your favorite language if they are both fine

suryapjr17:06:19

Np problem.. I oso love ()

vale17:06:38

I look a lot at https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/ when i can't choose between frameworks

suryapjr17:06:22

Want to learn FP with clojure

suryapjr17:06:46

How does clojure handle Concurrency

suryapjr17:06:02

Is it like Scala actors

suryapjr17:06:06

I went through the wiki ,i didn't understand if

alexmiller17:06:51

there are lots of great Clojure intro books - sounds like something systematic like that might help you get started

alexmiller17:06:26

but I’d also recommend Getting Clojure, Living Clojure, Programming Clojure, etc

jeremy64217:06:42

@suryapjr I love both Elixir and Clojure but you're going to find much more tooling and support in the JVM ecosystem than BEAM. Not that things are not out there, but you're more likely to find an outdated library for elixir or just have to figure a lot of things out on your own. They're both a lot of fun and I recommend learning both but pick up a book or two and start with Clojure. You'll transfer some of that knowledge over and be able to pick up actors on top of elixir.
