moving over from the announcement thread

Cora (she/her)20:01:49

idea for next year: maybe ask about other scripting dialects like joker, babashka, etc?

babashka 4
8
Cora (she/her)20:01:03

even as a single question, just to get an idea of how widespread use is

Cora (she/her)20:01:06

also graalvm

Cora (she/her)21:01:33

probably clojerl and similar too

borkdude21:01:55

So summarized: one about alternative Clojure implementations. And one about GraalVM as a target.

alexmiller21:01:55

Graal is included in several answer sets now

alexmiller21:01:36

sorry, just one actually - Q20 (production app). I had it in another related to packaging but ended up removing it

alexmiller21:01:28

removing the whole question that is

alexmiller21:01:34

the set of things mentioned above are used for different purposes though so I'm not sure that all makes as a question

alexmiller21:01:59

like, I suspect many people are using joker as a linter, but not for any other reason

alexmiller21:01:16

I suspect approximately no one is using clojerl

alexmiller21:01:27

graal is being used to create executables

alexmiller21:01:50

babashka to do scripting

alexmiller21:01:05

what question brings those together in a useful way?

Cora (she/her)21:01:45

which alternative clojure implementations are you using?

borkdude21:01:11

@alexmiller Two separate questions. One about scripting solutions. One for targeting Graal (sorry, I missed that question when I filled out the survey).

alexmiller21:01:26

the latter is there now imo

👍 4
alexmiller21:01:16

atm that one is tracking <5%

alexmiller21:01:56

I made a note for next year, will revisit then

Cora (she/her)21:01:26

I guess I'm curious about the usage, even if it's tiny, but it's not my survey. knowing what people use these alternative implementations for would be interesting too

borkdude21:01:46

some command line apps that are typically used only in dev are written in graalvm, but they are becoming more widespread. asking about production apps compiled in graalvm would not cover those

alexmiller21:01:54

you could always do your own survey :)

that's true! 🙂
