Interesting, I’ve found a typo on http://clojure.org. Where I can submit a bugreport? simple_smile

lowl4tency06:06:10

Seems Tom Hickey is here

thomas08:06:20

Does anyone have a nice one paragraph description of Clojure that I could borrow?

thomas08:06:49

it is for an introductory talk I am going to give

nikolap08:06:39

@thomas: if you can live with two paragraphs, I think the description on the http://clojure.org homepage does great justice to the language

thomas08:06:05

@nikolap: good idea... I hadn't looked at http://clojure.org for quite sometime... thanks.

joelkuiper10:06:52

hmm Swagger seems quite nice, unfortunately with the looming deadline I can’t get into the details of the schema etc.

joelkuiper10:06:56

next project, though!

cdpjenkins10:06:44

Thanks thomas for the link to this Slack

placeboza10:06:47

Should amend our wiki with that intro paragraph

placeboza10:06:11

I see I did use that paragraph

placeboza10:06:15

well done, past-me

martinklepsch11:06:01

oh -.- — thanks simple_smile

txus12:06:31

I was wondering if there is an idiomatic function in Clojure that acts as a kestrel for side effects, like Ruby’s Object#tap, such that: f x y = (y x); x

txus12:06:53

neeeeeat!

dnolen12:06:54

np. for others, I suggested doto simple_smile

txus12:06:17

always need it in my ->s

txus12:06:27

by the way, what’s the state of ambly + react native + om these days on iOS?

txus12:06:36

thinking of writing an app with it

dnolen12:06:18

@txus it can work but the workflow is not so good because React Native has its own build system.

dnolen12:06:24

@maria's ClojureScript compiler GSoC work will hopefully address some of the fundamental hurdles here.

dnolen12:06:24

if I had to guestimate, I’d say ClojureScript + React Native will have a solid dev experience by the next Clojure/conj.

txus12:06:36

that sounds promising!

txus12:06:18

Swift is nice but literally nothing beats the cljs+om dev experience

martinklepsch13:06:16

@txus: Zachary Kim has also been working on something along the lines of native development – not react native but titanium I believe

txus13:06:19

oh I’ve tried Titanium and Phonegap but I can’t bear it 😞 that’s why I’m so excited about react native

txus13:06:49

admittedly I have no idea how react native works — is it JavaScriptCore actually executing JavaScript? is it in a webview? how are the native components embedded in it? or is it something different altogether?

nek13:06:14

as far as I remember it’s JavaScriptCore running in a separate thread

nek13:06:23

the view is native

jcsims15:06:53

are there implicit problems with running a dosync inside another dosync block?

jcsims15:06:39

I’ve run into a case where I have two ref-sets in an outer dosync block, but the second is wrapped in its own dosync block for some reason I can’t yet fathom

dnolen15:06:56

@jcsims: transactions support nesting, so no problems as far as that.

jcsims16:06:18

dnolen: thanks, good to know
