Hello Kirill, we stick to English in this channel if you don't mind;)

alexyakushev07:08:50

You can PM me in Russian if you want

lowl4tency11:08:54

alexyakushev: it just was a happiness to see russian on the channel simple_smile

alexyakushev11:08:37

@lowl4tency I share your excitement with that :D

lowl4tency11:08:34

alexyakushev: could you share an expirience with android and clojure? Is it usable for production apps? simple_smile

alexyakushev11:08:59

You can see my 4clojure app as an example

alexyakushev11:08:04

Depends how you define "production". If it's an app for millions of users, to be developed by a team of twenty people, and needs an instant loading time - then it's not ready for that yet. But for smaller projects, experiments that might turn up publishable, internal things with lighter performance requirements - it can work just fine.

alexyakushev11:08:03

BTW I gonna release a new version very soon, with Material niceties and stuff

alexyakushev11:08:00

In my experience, Clojure gives a tremendous boost for Android development, especially while you are experimenting and figuring out stuff

malabarba11:08:32

the repl is invaluable when you're using some new functionality

malabarba11:08:40

or even just straying from the beaten path a little bit

malabarba11:08:53

The basic android environment is pretty well documented. But you're almost guaranteed to run into poorly documented functionality.

alexyakushev: thank you for the detail answer, I’m planning to create an app for my own purposes, but I don’t exclude an opportunity that it can be used by several thousands people

alexyakushev13:08:35

@lowl4tency Then you should be fine at least trying out CoA. If you like it you'll want to continue using it, otherwise you can switch back to conventional approach early.

lowl4tency16:08:16

alexyakushev: so, could you share a link or a resource for getting started

lowl4tency16:08:33

You said about an your project

alexyakushev16:08:38

I can thought you came here from there

lowl4tency16:08:49

alexyakushev: nope, I’ve just lurked channels simple_smile
